Our reach extends beyond the shores of the United Kingdom. 

Doyle Clayton advises on UK jurisdictional and multi jurisdictional employment issues in relation to breach of contract, restrictive covenant and injunction proceedings, arbitration disputes involving foreign jurisdictions held in London as well as cross border matters such as works councils, reorganisations and redundancies . We work closely with in house counsel with international corporations or with lawyers in private practice in foreign jurisdictions .

Doyle Clayton is a founder member of ELLINT (Employment and Labor Lawyers International), a collaboration between other specialist employment law firms on the European continent: www.ellint.net.

We and our ELLINT colleagues not only advise multi-jurisdictional clients on employment and labor law issues we also provide education and resources to our shared clients and contacts to assist to the greatest and most practical degree; such as giving seminars on the law of redundancy in key jurisdictions. We co-ordinate effectively; working together, where needed we can produce single, multi-compliant documents for use in a number of jurisdictions. If the client so requires, we advise and take instructions through a single contact point. 

In jurisdictions where ELLINT cannot assist directly, we work with trusted professionals at prestigious local law firms to ensure that our clients’ needs are fully serviced. Our work in this area has included defending clients from lawsuits embarked on simultaneously in the UK and overseas.

As well as advising organisations and individuals, we advise employee bodies, such as European Works Councils and employee forums. We have advised an Anglo-Dutch organisation’s European Works Council on relocating to the UK; we also represent and advise employee bodies in the context of corporate take-overs. Our expertise in handling multi-jurisdictional collective matters also has involved advising on employee involvement in the context of a Societas Europea.
