Employment Law

Solving employment issues with you

We provide prompt, practical and effective solutions on a range of employment and HR issues.


We work with clients on a wide range of assignments, including representation in employment tribunals and court. We also advise on health and safety issues and provide training in leadership and effective self-management.

Also, we regularly provide insights into recent developments in law and HR practices, and can offer a fixed-fee employment and HR support package.


We understand that every situation is different so we deliver services that are tailored to your needs, which will lead to the best possible outcome. Some practical and cost-effective solutions we have come up with include an employment GDPR and data privacy toolkit and nominally priced completions for onsite/offsite settlement agreements. 


We also appreciate the challenges employers face. We are continually evolving by closely partnering with our clients on anticipated issues as well as opportunities they can embrace. So far we have advised on vital updates on anticipated changes to the law, how cyber developments can affect businesses and how to best manage a diverse workforce.


As a team we are passionate about the areas employers and employees often find difficult to address. Mental health, menopause and other hormone imbalances, and gender identity are some examples.


We're particularly talented in managing discrimination and equality matters and have the sensitivity needed to address issues like bullying in the workplace as well as give training. 


We strongly believe that the best and most successful employers are those who are open minded and forward thinking. We will help you create that environment from which your business will benefit.
