Employment Law

Work is an essential part of life and often defines how we see ourselves as well as financially supporting you and your family. Because of this it’s important that you are comfortable with your employer and the terms on which you are working.

Joining a new business is often a very exciting time and it can be easy to sign on the dotted line without making sure you know and understand how you and your new employer will work together and what obligations will remain on you, even when you leave. 


Unfortunately, life doesn’t always go to plan, and your working life is no different. There may also be times when you need the support of a team of legal experts well-versed with employment law.

#GettingResults #SupportingYou


During your work, you may have concerns about the conduct of colleagues towards you or feel you have faced discrimination in the workplace or been treated badly victimised because you have spoken up against malpractice or poor behaviour within the organisation.

At the end of the employment relationship, you may feel you have been dismissed unfairly or in breach of contract, in which case you may want support and advice on potential claims for unfair and/or wrongful dismissal. Alternatively, you may feel that you are being forced out of your role for unfair reasons.

We are experienced at representing people in employment tribunals, supporting them through internal grievance and disciplinary hearings and through the often tricky minefield of negotiated exits and settlement agreements.


Whatever the circumstances, our experienced and proactive approach will find an effective solution that works for you.  If you find yourself in a difficult situation, the important thing is not to panic – pick up the phone and speak to us. We will work with you to achieve the outcome you deserve and will support you by giving you honest and realistic advice about your options and prospects.

We are nationally recognised for our work by Legal 500 and Chambers
