Workforce Restructuring Advice

In any business acquisition, sale or restructure, the people element is paramount and needs to be handled carefully and within the relevant legislation. But it also needs to work commercially for you. ​

At Vistra, we can help determine your risk regarding restructures. We'll work with you to help maintain the financial stability of the business, but if it's determined that the business must close, we'll help you do this in a manner that ensures those difficult decisions are made at the right time and in accordance with the applicable law. ​

We have teams of legal experts to advise you on the elements of any acquisition, sale, merger, reorganisation or restructure that involves people. This advice will help you with costs and synergies pre- and post-change. ​

We can also advise and support you as you consult with your workforce on any change. And, if need be, put your exit procedures into practice. And we will support you throughout the process, providing advice, answering queries as they arise about the process, employee rights, timescales and implementation.

 

Tribunal claims

Whilst we will do all we can to protect you from claims, it is possible that at some stage you will be faced with one.  We know the challenges ahead of you when defending an employment tribunal, and we deliver cost effective and commercially-focused advice to provide support to you as a business.  For more information on our pricing, please click here.
