Creating a happy and engaged workforce is key to business success. We work proactively with businesses to identify and address potential workforce problems before they arise, enabling both you and your people achieve their full potential. 


As you know Employment law and HR best practice is changing all the time, meaning more risks and more potential claims for businesses that aren’t up to speed.

That’s where we come in.  We have an experienced and proactive team who will work alongside you, offering advice and helping you find effective solutions that will work for your unique circumstances.

Above all, we make sure that your employment practices are legal.  Additionally, we can work with you to get the most from your employees.

We provide a friendly and commercially savvy approach to your people queries. We also can talk with real experience about employee engagement, as Stephens Scown has been ranked for over 4 years as a ‘Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work For‘ employer.

We are confident that our experienced team of lawyers and CIPD qualified HR professionals will have the right knowledge to help you in achieving your objectives.

Rest assured that what you say to us also remains confidential: unlike HR Consultants, all our team have the protection of ‘legal privilege’ which means we don’t have to divulge in court or Employment Tribunal what you say to us.

We are also recognised for our work by both Legal 500, where we rank Tier One, and Chambers.

2019 Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession


We needed help to respond to an HR issue that had got beyond our internal organisation knowledge, experience and skills. You were most sympathetic, helpful and professional – understanding the impact of the actions that had to be taken, on all the individuals involved and the organisation. We wholeheartedly recommend you.
