HR services

There are probably as many ways to measure a legal firm's success as there are to create it. But one factor is clear: the powerful link that exists between the quality and energy of the people who work for a firm and its performance. PwC's human resource services (HRS) practice places this often-overlooked success factor front and centre. We believe that people play the most essential role in the creation of value and so we strive to help our clients nurture and train their employees into a sustainable source of competitive advantage. We also have the practical experience, the multidisciplinary resources to help clients achieve that goal.

We help our legal firm clients align their business strategy with their people and processes by assisting firms to manage the financial, tax, regulatory, operational, risk management, and strategic challenges associated with human resources. We offer fresh perspectives and innovative services, often challenging standard approaches to complex global and local human resource issues, such as:

  • Strategic HR advisory services including HR functional effectiveness and people performance.
  • Executive resourcing and development.
  • Organisational integration: strategic HR pre and post deal advisory and support services for merging firms.
  • Reward planning and performance related remuneration planning.
  • Salary and benefits benchmarking.
  • Employee benefit design and communication.
  • Overseas expansion: HR growth and development issues to support firms expanding into new markets, including workforce mobility policy development, assignment cost projections; and tax compliance support programme;
  • Compensation and retirement programme structuring for internationally mobile partners and staff;
  • Employment Tax Advisory: assisting firms to ensure compliance, control costs and minimise risk in relation to PAYE & PRSI exposures.
