Employment & Benefits
Employment law has become extremely complex particularly in recent years. At Beauchamps we understand that clients need fast and practical advice, not just because the law is changing fast, but because employment problems in the workplace usually cannot wait.
We have a substantial employment and benefits practice staffed by lawyers who are committed to providing a rapid, commercially-oriented, value-added and cost-effective service to our clients.
The group consistently monitors changes in legislation and provides in-house training and seminars for clients.
In managing the employment relationship, in these difficult economic times, it is important that employers are able to manage costs and have flexible employment relationships, while at the same time staying within the law. We believe that we can provide valuable assistance and support to clients in managing the employment relationship and help minimize risk and avoid litigation.
We have an extensive understanding of the needs of our clients and are proud of our excellent working relationships with clients. Our approach is to provide an effective and supportive service. We appreciate that employee disputes can give rise to poor morale and serious disruption to day-to-day business. We try, where possible, to add value at an early stage to any anticipated employee-related issue. We have a very strong reputation in representing corporate and individual clients in the Equality Tribunal, Employment Appeals Tribunal, Labour Court, Circuit Court and High Court and our expertise and experience in this area is acknowledged by our clients and by leading international law directories.
The Employment and Benefits Group is headed up by Dermot Casserly a well known employment law specialist. Prior to joining Beauchamps Dermot was an Associate Director with KPMG. Dermot qualified as a solicitor in 1998 and joined Beauchamps in 2004.
