We help employers navigate the challenging and frequently changing landscape of employment law by addressing all the complexities of employer-employee relationships, including:

Clients we serve

KCG Partners works with the HR leaders, department heads and boards of directors at large and complex organizations, for which effective employment law management is crucial to the success of their businesses.

Value we deliver

Our clients find special value in our employment practice due to our preventive approach, crisis management capabilities, and track record in employment litigation.

With our preventive approach, our clients can take advantage of our guiding principle: where business risk is concerned, it is better to be safe than sorry. Our clients not only benefit from our drafting of regulatory compliant employment policies, but they also regularly receive assistance with developing and implementing preventative strategies via HR compliance reviews and audits.

With our crisis management, our clients can take comfort in our well-established methodology for swiftly and effectively dealing with employee fraud and other misconduct. Our clients receive first-response case and risk assessment reports as well as alternative action plans. We also collaborate with our clients on avoiding reputational damage by tackling the legal aspects of detrimental media coverage.

With our employment litigation, our clients receive prompt, cost-effective results due to our up-front, objective assessment of all key factors, including the facts, the law, mediation/arbitration prospects and settlement possibilities. When our clients face especially complex labour law situations involving high-level executives, we supplement our team of internal employment experts by working closely with employment law professors, HR professionals and forensic experts.
