With employment law in Bermuda constantly evolving and becoming an increasingly regulated area, our team prides itself on their extensive experience, both locally and internationally, to provide practical and commercial responses to complex and sensitive workplace issues.

We have experience advising and representing a range of clients from large scale employers in Bermuda to high net worth individuals. Clients also include banks, reinsurers, financial services businesses, and prominent local companies.

In addition to successfully representing employers and individuals before the tribunals and courts, including in unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal, breach of contract and discrimination proceedings, we also assist clients in resolving disputes out of court via mediation, arbitration and settlement agreements.

Our full range of employment law expertise includes advising clients on:

  • Business transfers including employee matters arising from mergers, amalgamations and restructuring
  • HR documents and policies
  • Contracts
  • Dispute resolution
  • Employee benefits and incentive schemes
  • HR support including surrounding grievance and disciplinary procedures
  • Post-termination restrictions
  • Training
