Within: Employment: employers and senior executives

Baker McKenzie’s ‘excellent’ department advises on the full gamut of employment work for domestic and international clients, including global compliance, cross-border transactional support and union issues. Department head John Evason and of counsel Paul Harrison successfully represented Boots before the Court of Appeal in a claim concerning union recognition of the Pharmacists’ Defense Association. Daniel Ellis acted for Emerson on the employment aspects of the sale of its network power business across a number of jurisdictions, including providing immigration and pensions advice. Monica Kurnatowska, Christine O’Brien and Stephen Ratcliffe are also recommended. The team was considerably strengthened by the arrival of Carl Richards and his team from King & Wood Mallesons. Daniel Ellis is now an occupational psychologist.

  • The New Turkish Code of Obligations: Important Changes for Leases of Residential & Business Premises

    For decades, the primary Turkish laws governing leases of residential and business premises have been the Law on Leasing Real Property dated May 27, 1955 (the “Lease Law”) and the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 818 dated April 22, 1926 (the “Obligations Code”). Both of these laws, however, will be repealed and replaced with the new Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098 dated January 11, 2011 (the “New Obligations Code”), which will enter into force on July 7, 2012.
