Employment services for financial services and insurance

At Browne Jacobson, we’re embedded in the Financial Services and Insurance sector. Our employment team plays a huge role in this. We work with a wide range of clients across the sector, from intermediaries to banks, insurance companies to brokers.  

Clients welcome our direct and down-to-earth approach to providing employment law advice. Our commitment to pragmatic commercial guidance that focuses as much on what the client can do as what they can’t, sets us apart as true experts in this field.

We work collaboratively to provide commercial, pragmatic advice across this heavily regulated sector, as well as training and know-how on the quick-changing regulatory employment law landscape.

Our work can be anything from a “run of the mill” grievance right through to the termination of a senior executive, in line with the Senior Managers & Certification Regime.

Undertaking a wide range of EPLI claims as a panel, working alongside dedicated claims handlers, we have an experienced team of specialist employment lawyers with experience of working in sectors including leisure, sports, charities, I.T, manufacturing, construction, engineering, health and education.

We advise open-mindedly, on related policy coverage work and have a thorough understanding of the commercial, regulatory and reputational pressures you face in the current market. Our lawyers are frequently called on to advise on the employment aspects of professional indemnity claims, as well as advising on employment claims falling with directors and officers and trustee liability insurance.

And, should the worst happen, we’re confident delivering advice and assistance to policyholders facing employment related claims and representation in Employment Tribunals.
