Employment & HR

The right tools for the job

Specialist employment law solicitors

Our experienced employment law solicitors are HR experts.

We know the law. Crucially, however, we know how to apply it in practice: to real staff with real issues in the real world.

We obviously provide employment law advice but often equally, or if not more importantly, we provide experienced advice on the commercial solutions and options to your problem whether it be on the shop floor, in the boardroom or anywhere else you operate. In other words we advise you on what we would do if we were in your shoes.

Above all, we know how challenging it is to keep pace with employment law. This is why we act as an extension of your business or HR team, giving you the powerful HR tools you need, when you need them most.

Helping you with employment law & contracts

Our experienced employment lawyers can provide advice on:

  • contracts of employment
  • Directors Service Agreements
  • redundancy procedures
  • disciplinary and grievance procedures
  • discrimination claims
  • the drafting and enforceability of restrictive covenants
  • settlement agreements
  • social media in the workplace
  • whistleblowing
  • TUPE
  • reorganisations
  • contract and policy drafting

 

Transparency

We are committed to transparency on legal fees. Further details and indicative pricing for bringing or defending a claim of unfair dismissal can be found here.

 

  • Expertise

    There’s no substitute for hard-earned experience.

    Our responsive and solutions-focused employment lawyers can help you:

    • draft HR policies and contracts of employment
    • handle grievance and disciplinary matters
