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.
