The 'timely, pragmatic and cost-effective' employment practice at Walker Morris LLP is 'keen to add value at every stage'. It acts for a broad range for international and national corporates, spanning from clients in retail, to those in the food and drink sector, to premier league football clubs such as Crystal Palace FC. The practice continues to act for Asda Stores and, with Andrew Rayment taking the lead, has advised on employment aspects of its acquisition of stores from the Co-op. Also in the retail sector, the team is instructed as sole legal advisor to Moss Bros Group and is currently assisting with both contentious and non-contentious matters.
