Opened in 2011, Seyfarth’s London office services firm clients with operations outside the United States, in particular in Europe and the Middle East, as part of the firm’s International Employment Law practice. The team’s attorneys have particular experience assisting companies with large multi-jurisdictional employment law projects of a strategic, compliance and transactional nature. The types of matters the group assists clients with include: global compliance projects; the employment aspects of international mergers and acquisitions; international workforce restructures; international outsourcings; and the development, review and implementation of contractual employment documents such as offer letters, employment contracts, proprietary information agreements, company regulations, non-compete arrangements and other employment-related documents for countries around the world.

The managing partner of the office is Peter L Talibart.

Our London office operates as Seyfarth Shaw (UK) LLP, an affiliate of Seyfarth Shaw LLP.

Complaints

If you wish to make a complaint about Seyfarth Shaw (UK) LLP then, in the first instance, please contact the person with whom you are working or corresponding to set out your concerns. We will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage and, if applicable, will confirm our complaints handling procedure in writing (which is available to clients at any time on request).

If you are not satisfied with our attempt to handle and resolve matters, you may be able to ask the Legal Ombudsman to consider the issue (write to: PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton, WV1 9WJ; or email: enquiries@legalombudsman.org.uk; or phone 0300 555 0333). If you do wish to refer a complaint to the Legal Ombudsman, it should be done within six months of our final response to your complaint and within six years of the act or omission that caused the complaint or, if outside this period, within three years of when you should reasonably have known about the relevant act or omission.

The Legal Ombudsman may refer your complaint to the SRA if they are not the correct body to consider the matter, as the Legal Ombudsman’s services are only available for certain types of complaints and complainants. For full details, please visit: https://www.legalombudsman.org.uk/helping-the-public/make-a-complaint/ [legalombudsman.org.uk] and https://www.sra.org.uk/consumers/problems/report-solicitor.page [sra.org.uk]. Note also that if you are a client and your complaint is about our invoices, you may also apply to the court for an assessment of the bill under Part III of the Solicitors’ Act 1974. If all or part of any bill remains unpaid, we may be entitled to charge interest.
