Employment Solicitors

Our employment solicitors support fairness and best practice in the workplace and act for both employers and employees. We cover all aspects of employment law including employment contracts and policies, restructures and redundancies, disciplinary, capability and grievance procedures, settlement agreements, and tribunal representation.

For Employers 

If you want to safely steer your business through the minefield of employment law it really does pay to get the right advice and support. We keep on top of legislation and case law. We help businesses manage their employee relations by giving proactive advice to help stop disputes arising. Where a dispute has arisen we can help you quickly resolve it in a commercially pragmatic way, often using a negotiated settlement agreement. 

If the dispute does go to court or tribunal, perhaps because it is in your company’s best interests to bring or defend a claim, we can help you. Call us, or email your enquiry using the contact form below.


For Employees

We understand what a dreadful impact being unhappy at work can have on your health and on your personal and family life. Simply knowing your rights can instantly make you feel empowered and so much better. It is possible to assert your rights with your employer in a constructive, non-confrontational way that will resolve the problem and let you get on with your work and your life.

We can make that first approach to your employer on your behalf or we can write the letter for you to send in your own name, if you prefer. If you are treated badly for raising a grievance or asserting a statutory right, you may have an additional set of claims against your employer which we can help you with.

If you are facing disciplinary or capability proceedings we can make representations to your employer to help prevent your dismissal, or try to negotiate an exit strategy on favourable terms and with an agreed reference. Click here to learn more about Settlement Agreements.

If you decide you want a court or tribunal to hear your claim (or because you have to defend a claim your employer has brought against you), we have the in-house expertise to represent you. Call us, or email your enquiry using the contact form below.
