Employment Law

We all know that employment law is ever-changing and demands much management time and resources – especially if you get it wrong!


For businesses of all sizes, this is where we play our part, recognising the need to support you, working by your side, dealing with your employment matters effectively, enabling you to focus on your business. We’re qualified lawyers with experience of both traditional law firm practices and fixed fee employment law providers and with this, we offer a blend of both adding value to your business.


Whether it’s for strategic advice, to guide you step-by-step through a problem or just to give you the reassurance you need, we sit by your side taking ownership of all your employment law & HR issues.


Plus…we have years of experience advising employers and employees so we can see the broader picture from both sides and advise accordingly.


This is how we support you:


  • A dedicated commercially minded specialist employment lawyer for your business
  • Unlimited support for a fixed fee so you can call or email us as often as you like – no clock watching here!
  • Your lawyer will come and meet with you during the fixed period as part of the support service
  • We are proactive not reactive - we find solutions and strategies
  • We are experts in advising about disciplinary and grievance processes, investigations, dismissals, recruitment, absences, performance, zero hours contracts, maternity, TUPE, agency workers, redundancies and reorganisations
  • We make sure your legally compliant by creating or updating your contracts of employment and HR policies
  • We provide you with tailored letters and documents drafted on your behalf - we never send you a template to fill in the blanks
  • We build lasting relations with our clients, developing a full understanding of your business needs enabling us to offer tailor-made, pragmatic, efficient and commercial advice
  • We provide bespoke HR and management training adding value to your business
  • If needed, we can support and represent you if you are faced with an Employment Tribunal dispute, handling negotiations with ACAS, the claimant and their adviser
  • We can assist you in sourcing Employment Disputes Insurance to protect you from the costs of defending an Employment Tribunal claim and any resulting settlement costs and compensation awards
  • We provide regular employment law bulletins ensuring you are well informed of any changes in the law and useful employment law cases that will help you manage your own HR issues
