Pragmatic advice to move your business forward.

Your workforce is the essence of your business and needs to be effective. The challenge can come from the fact that employment law is dynamic and rapidly evolving with a constant stream of new rules and regulations. As the employer, you want to be in a good place for recruiting and retaining employees as well as dismissing them fairly should the need arise.

Our Employment team has the expertise and experience to help you navigate and adapt to the changing landscape and provide innovative solutions. We work closely with many types of clients including large companies, SMEs, owner-managed businesses and start-ups across a wide range of sectors providing advice on a variety of issues, whether they are HR related, strategic, complex or contentious.

We get to know your business, working practices, culture and commercial objectives. This enables us to provide tailored and pragmatic advice to help your organisation move forward and minimise HR headaches and disruption. Where possible we promote the early resolution of employment disputes but, when this cannot be achieved, we guide you through the litigation process with a commitment to delivering the best possible result for your business.

Our Employment team provides both a highly proactive and pragmatic client service and is experienced in all aspects of employment law:

  • Day-to-day HR issues and queries including disciplinary, suspension, grievances and recruitment
  • Strategic advice on business matters including business transfers and structural changes
  • Governance issues, including Executive and Trustee/Governor disputes
  • Settlement agreements
  • Executive severance
  • Drafting and review of contracts and policy & procedure
  • Redundancy and restructuring exercises
  • Employee relations
  • Discrimination
  • Trade union issues
  • Staff councils
  • Business immigration
  • Tribunal preparation and representation
