Restructuring and redundancy

To remain competitive, businesses often need to restructure, make changes to employee terms and conditions or reduce headcounts. The difficulty for global employers is how to manage these changes in different countries with different legal frameworks, while remaining focused on overall global strategy.

A particular challenge of international restructuring, redundancy programs or change projects is that actions in one country can have unwanted and unexpected consequences in other jurisdictions. Eversheds Sutherland’s global restructuring practices aim to avoid this by working with you to develop a consistent and effective project management approach for all jurisdictions.

Our experienced lawyers regularly advise and support businesses whose restructuring activities have an impact on employees in several different countries.

Our project-managed approach also draws on our in-depth knowledge of the cultural and political sensitivities that exist across jurisdictions.
