Employee Reorganisations

At the forefront of opening up new ways to deliver business legal services, Outset’s approach combines consistent quality, excellent communications and leading edge technology to ensure the best possible outcome at an affordable cost.


In outsourcing and business transfer situations, the word “TUPE” has become synonymous with the words “problems” and “uncertainty”. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Clear, precise and solution focused legal and HR advice at the very start maximises the prospect of the whole TUPE process running smoothly. And if there is uncertainty about whether TUPE applies at all, having a clear understanding at the very start of the planning process of what the legal issues and risks actually are can save a great deal of time and money later on.

The application of TUPE to an outsourcing or business transfer situation undoubtedly does, from time to time, throw up some difficult legal questions, and our team of experienced specialist employment lawyers will answer those questions for you. But, in the main, getting “the practicalities” right is the key to success when dealing with TUPE.

 Knowing and planning for what is supposed to happen and when, what documentation needs to be created, and who is supposed to communicate what to whom removes many of the worries and uncertainties that businesses often have at the start of a TUPE process. And we can provide the resources and expertise if you need HR consultants to be in the business “on the ground” with you when planning elections for employee representatives, or be physically with you for the information and consultation meetings.

In short, working with us on a transaction involving TUPE would be a great business choice. We help you plan for life after the transaction has finished, as well as helping you minimise legal risk. This enables you to focus on what’s really important: Getting the transaction “over the line” so that you can drive the associated business strategies forward.

We see Outset as members of our team as we are all on the same side. We have a great working relationship where roles and rules don’t get in the way of getting the job done. They have always been fun and very easy to get on with.

I have worked with Outset for many years and I have found that they never rest on their laurels and constantly strive to work in partnership with us to ensure that their advice reflects our commercial ethos and approach to human resources and risk management.

Malcolm Frier, HR Director, FUJIFILM Speciality Ink Systems

We have engaged Outset on a number of occasions since December 2011 to provide us with legal and HR services covering a variety of issues. On each of these matters, we have found Outset to be detailed and robust in the handling of the matters. They were not risk adverse to support us in taking a calculated approach. The advice that we have received has been detailed and robust and has assisted our managers in handling situations confidently.

"Chloe is fantastic! She is always there for us, nothing is ever too much trouble and she goes above and beyond all the time. I know she is really busy but she always gets back to us promptly. Because she visits us regularly for the training updates, I feel she really understands the business and also the capabilities of the team.  She has become a real trusted help to us all."
