Our employment law specialists advise on employment practices and legislation to protect and support our clients. We offer clear analysis and help set a course of action to achieve effective and compliant employment strategy for our clients.

We provide expert employment law advice

The Employment Team works with employers to resolve conflicts and to offer practical solutions, whether it is resolving disputes, working with our clients to build the best resourcing structure, or assisting with employment processes and legislation.


Employment law covers a multitude of processes and legislation which must be adhered to. Employee benefits such as flexible working requests, the obligations and duties arising from anti-discrimination legislation, as well as disciplinary and grievance procedures can be covered by a comprehensive employment handbook and policy document.


Our team can work with you to advise and establish procedures that protect organisations as well as ensuring that your employees’ rights are secure by legally binding contracts, particularly during TUPE proceedings and other structural changes.


We provide legal advice, support and assistance in employment tribunal cases and also have experience of dealing with cases at the Employment Appeal Tribunal and the Court of Appeal.
