Whether you are an employee or an employer, we are able to provide expert legal advice to assist you on your employment issues to help achieve a successful outcome.
Commercial, yet pragmatic, our experienced lawyers will help you deal with difficult and often urgent situations and help navigate you through the complexities of employment law.
As a business owner, employment law and regulatory obligations can be a mine-field and it is easy to inadvertently fall on the wrong side of the law. Important decisions often have to be made urgently so you need your lawyers to be accessible and responsive.
We work with businesses in a number of sectors ranging from agriculture, construction and professional services to retail, renewables and manufacturing. We help business managers focus on running their business by making the advice we give clear and concise.
We also provide expert help on the less pleasant aspects like business restructuring and redundancies, and when matters become contentious, whether it is HR advice on a grievance procedure or workplace dispute, or the defence of a claim in Court or an Employment Tribunal, we can advise and act for you.
