K&L Gates LLP has launched Global Employer Solutions, a cross-disciplinary team of lawyers to help companies identify and mitigate risks related to personnel policies and global employment operations.
The new platform includes more than 200 lawyers throughout K&L Gates’ global network, collaborating across borders and practices and drawing from deep experience in areas such as employment, workplace safety, immigration, benefits, tax, executive compensation, compliance, and investigations.
Global Employer Solutions co-leaders, Rosemary Alito (Newark) and Alice DeBoos (Sydney) said:
“Global Employer Solutions responds to the needs of our clients within the global workplace. While the formal initiative is new, we have many clients who have long relied on K&L Gates as their single source for global workplace law answers.
“The workforce risks for global companies have grown exponentially in recent years, and it’s critical for companies operating internationally to take both the global and local view in order to thrive in today’s marketplace.”
Global Employer Solutions is part of the firm’s newly elevated Labor, Employment and Workplace Safety practice area, also co-led by partners Alito and DeBoos.
To complement the Global Employer Solutions offering, K&L Gates also has created an interactive Global Employer Guide that provides quick, concise summaries of the main employment law requirements of nearly 20 countries in which the firm operates, including Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Japan, Poland, Russia, Taiwan, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States, among others.
K&L Gates comprises more than 2,000 lawyers globally who practice across five continents.
