Wedlake Bell’s long standing experience in advising clients on cross border employment and employment law related issues has resulted in the firm setting up a niche business in October 2013, named iGlobal Law. It specialises in advising on and managing the international labour law needs of global businesses in over 70 jurisdictions. iGlobal's clients are major multinationals, headquartered across Europe, the US and Asia. Client sectors include bio tech, electronics, insurance, IT, oil and gas, medical equipment, software and telecommunications. Advice ranges from routine help line questions, to global projects such as contract/handbook harmonisations, policy reviews, global reductions in force and transaction due diligence and support. iGlobal's core strength is its considerable experience and knowledge of the world's labour and related compliance law which it has gained by working with highly rated independent law firms in each of the jurisdictions in which its clients operate.
