Employment & Incentives (NI)


Our Employment and Incentives Group in Belfast delivers technically excellent but practical advice quickly and without jargon to domestic and international businesses and public and private sector organisations across the full range of industry sectors.

Our approach to managing employment relationships starts with understanding each clients specific need and advising in relation to clients ethos, culture and sectoral requirements. We seek to build a relationship which includes the design and implementation of contracts, policies and guidance which works for the business. Our focus is on risk management, recognising that it is better for employers to take a proactive approach to the management and resolution of employment and planning issues, than to be mired in unproductive litigation.

We advise on a wide range of matters including:

  • Tribunal and High Court representation
  • Drafting, maintenance and training on HR policies and protocols
  • Trade Union recognition and relationship
  • Employment transactional advice on Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) transactions
  • Discrimination awareness and training for management
  • Policies and procedures
  • Service agreements

With our offices in Belfast and Dublin, our dedicated team advises on an all island basis. A&L Goodbody has an international outlook with market leading reputation and expertise developed over many years working with overseas clients and advisors on a global basis.

“A&L Goodbody's lawyers are always available and responsive. Their client-handling skills are excellent and customer service is brilliant.”
