People matter and so we are delighted to welcome 3 new partners, Ian Baker, Andrew Banfill and Andrew Wood. We also have opened offices in Norwich (a 30mns plane’s ride from Amsterdam) and in New York (a little bit further in the opposite direction!). As if this was not enough excitement for October, we were shortlisted by the Law Society in the Legal Excellence Awards 2009 in two categories: Equality & Diversity and (for the second year running) Exporting Legal Services.

Welcome to “People Matters”, our newsletter considering the latest development in Employment Law and HR issues in the UK. In this issue we have also included an article relevant to companies with subsidiaries or a sole representative employee in France. We do hope that you will find our Briefs and Articles useful and informative.
