We are specialists in Transfers of Undertakings (“TUPE”) regularly dealing with complex transfers in both the public (including both central and local government) and private sectors.

Whether you are dealing with a service provision change (change of contractor) or a sale or purchase of a business or part of it we can assist.

We offer legal advice on key issues such as:

  • does TUPE apply?
  • the liabilities that do and do not transfer including pensions
  • the duty to inform and (sometimes) consult
  • the provision of due diligence information
  • the provision of Employee Liability Information
  • how to identify who transfers and who does not
  • re-assignment and objections to transfer
  • contract terms and warranties and indemnities on a transfer
  • planning for a future transfer now “TUPE Tomorrow"
  • changing terms and conditions post transfer
  • redundancies and restructuring around a transfer

If you have a TUPE situation, or think you might, call us to see how we can work with you.
