Whether your business has one employee or one hundred employees you are responsible for ensuring compliance with Employment Law legislation.  It is well known that the standard of compliance with legislation required for employers is very high and the obligations placed on employers are quite onerous.  Additionally as many of the offences under employment law legislation are “Strict Liability” (non compliance is enough without an intent to avoid the responsibilities under the legislation) the legislation is greatly stacked in favour of the employee, thus making it very difficult for employers to succeed in defending a claim by an employee.  There is no doubt that when dealing with Employment Law obligations it is better to ‘err on the side of caution’ and ensure that all policies and procedures required to be in place are in fact in place.  Martin J. Burke Solicitors offer advice in relation to all aspects of employment law including advices on defending a claim for redress and legal representation at the various venues presiding over Employment Law cases.

If your business is established through a Private Limited Company you have specific obligations under The Companies Acts 1963 – 2012.  It is extremely important to be aware of your obligations under this legislation to avoid any unnecessary or accidental breaches of the applicable laws.  We offer advice in relation to all Company Law issues including corporate compliance, share transfers, mergers & acquisition, enforcement, etc.

We also offer legal advices to all businesses in relation to Intellectual Property Rights, Confidentiality Agreements, Share Purchase Agreements, Asset Purchase Agreements, Franchise Agreements, Shareholder’s Agreements, Partnership Agreements and Co-Ownership Agreements, amongst others.
