We acted for a global IT company on the successful acquisition of a business that involved the transfer of employees on the basis of a TUPE transfer.  A TUPE transfer is where employees enjoy a right to move employer when the business that they work for is sold to a third party.  Our client felt that its HR advisor was simply rehearsing the legislation in advice.  We provided specific, pragmatic advice that saved our client a great deal of money by advising the client on how to buy the business without incurring the cost of taking on unnecessary staff or making unnecessary compensation payments to those being made redundant.  Saving our client money!
