Deloitte Legal and Epstein Becker Green Announce Alliance to Offer Global Employment Law and Workforce Management Services
MUNICH, 7 MAY 2019–Deloitte Legal and Epstein Becker Green today announced they have established an alliance to provide clients comprehensive and global employment law and workforce management services.
The alliance brings together Deloitte Legal’s global reach and the strength of its multidisciplinary business approach with Epstein Becker Green’s U.S. labor and employment attorneys and workforce management experience to form a global delivery model. Through this alliance, Epstein Becker Green and Deloitte Legal will offer comprehensive employment law and workforce management services to clients.
“Deloitte Legal is growing its global practice to provide quality client service in a market that is highly fragmented. Our alliance with Epstein Becker Green enables us to bridge a critical gap in the U.S. market to support clients who require a global solution for employment law and workforce management issues,” says Piet Hein Meeter, Deloitte Global Managing Director, Deloitte Legal.
Global employers today face growing market complexities, from legislative changes and compliance, to technological and societal forces which are transforming the future of work. Whether solving global mobility issues, designing employee equity incentives, negotiating collective bargaining arrangements, or responding to increasing public attention around harassment or equal pay issues, workforce issues can impact a company’s ability to attract and retain talent or damage its reputation and market value in an instant. These issues have created a confluence of legal and business challenges for employers that can no longer be separated or dealt with in isolation. As a result, every organization requires business advisors who can address the combined business and legal issues related to its multinational workforce. This alliance answers the call by providing, when and where needed, a multidisciplinary team of business and legal professionals who can present comprehensive solutions to significant workforce issues that affect a company’s market position, strategy, innovation, and culture.
“In building this alliance, we purposely sought to work with a like-minded organization that understands the value of providing clients with comprehensive business solutions. Epstein Becker Green’s employment law and workforce management services are well-recognized, client-focused, and provide real world practicality to clients,” says Christoph Röper, Managing Partner Tax & Legal, Deloitte Germany.
“There is no question that the world is changing and with it our workplaces. We are thrilled to align with Deloitte Legal to meet these challenges head-on,” says Steven Di Fiore, Chief Operating Officer, Epstein Becker Green.
“Epstein Becker Green has been delivering innovative workforce management legal and consulting advice to its clients for more than four decades, and we look forward to providing additional value to our clients through our collaboration with Deloitte Legal,” says David Garland, Chair of the Employment, Labor and Workforce Management Steering Committee, Epstein Becker Green.
“The professional service experience brought together through this alliance is unprecedented and will deliver tremendous value to clients in addressing any issue related to their workforce in any part of the globe,” says James Flynn, Managing Director, Epstein Becker Green.
Services offered through this alliance include, for example, global employment policies and contracts, employment remodeling, transfer of undertaking, employment law due diligence, healthcare solutions, employee benefits, and executive compensation and employee share plans.
