Global employment companies


An internationally mobile workforce has given rise to the utilisation of global employment companies, distinctive service companies which form part of a multinational corporation’s group structure and organised to manage and reduce risks for its global workforce. We assist clients in negotiating the evolving global and cross-border regulatory, compliance and legal issues associated with employing individuals through global employment companies.

We leverage our global platform and extensive tax and human resources capabilities to offer efficient and coordinated analysis of multinational legal issues arising from the establishment and management of a global employment company. Our team provides a wide-ranging service underpinned by an extensive understanding of the legal, procedural, governance and reputational aspects of global employment, alongside in-depth knowledge of best practices and a strategic focus on clients’ industry and business needs.
