People

Luke is a partner in King & Spalding’s Global Human Capital and Compliance practice. Luke specializes in international employment law and understands the unique challenges of managing a global workforce. Multinational corporations need solutions to workforce matters in each country in which they operate. Legal frameworks—both the risks and opportunities—are broad and varied. Luke works collaboratively with clients to navigate these frameworks and deliver successful outcomes.

Luke supports organisations to manage their cross-border workforces globally and has a regional focus in the Asia-Pacific. He works daily with various Asia-Pacific countries, and understands the particular challenges faced by clients seeking to navigate cross-border matters.

Luke advises clients in relation to day-to-day matters faced by global employers, together with multijurisdictional projects such as compliance reviews, cross border mergers and acquisitions and outsourcings, privacy and data protection, investigations, restructures and reductions in force and employee integration issues. Clients regularly comment that Luke always ensures that their needs across the Asia-Pacific region, whether on a single jurisdiction or multijurisdiction basis, can be met quickly and effectively.
