Case studies

In line with the company’s growth strategy, we helped Precipart, a global company engaged in the engineering, design and manufacture of mechanical components, assemblies, gears and motion control solutions, to invest in into the UK with a new office in Oxfordshire.

After an initial consultation with Angela Shields, the firm designed a tailored service to assist Precipart in on-boarding employees in the UK. This involved a comprehensive review of the company’s policies, contracts and wider documentation to achieve compliance with UK employment law as well as bespoke insurance, corporate IP and data protection advice.

Precipart commented:
“The Pitmans Law Kickstart International service was just what we needed. Local knowledge, high quality legal advice, competitive fees and all delivered through one point of contact who took the time and effort to understand our business and our on-boarding employment needs. I would recommend any well-established company looking to invest in the UK for the first time to talk to Pitmans for considered and comprehensive legal advice.”
Richard Fox | Treasurer & CFO
