Employment Law

Protection For Your Business

Your employees are one of your most valuable assets, and should be protected.  It is also important that your employment policies and procedures protect your business and do not leave you open to future risk from spurious claims.  Employment law is a complex and constantly changing area of the law.  Getting it wrong can cost you time and money, and could damage the reputation of your business.

Prevention is always better than cure; it is important to get the right contracts of employment, terms and conditions and policies and procedures in place from the very start.  Poorly thought out disciplinary and dismissal procedures can leave your business open to unnecessary unfair dismissal claims.

Our expert employment lawyers will work with your HR team to make sure you have got the right contracts, policies and staff handbooks in place, whether that is creating new ones from scratch or carrying out a thorough review of your existing policy documents.

On Your Side If Disputes Arise

If things do go wrong, we can help you to find solutions to problems as they arise.  Our specialist employment lawyers have an excellent track record of success, and will give you practical, realistic advice on the best way to proceed.  We will always give you an honest assessment of the merits of the case and present your defence in the strongest possible terms.

We can negotiate a settlement on your behalf, or represent you at an Employment Tribunal if things get that far.  Whatever is needed, our focus will always be on getting the very best result for your business.

Redundancy & Restructuring

If you are restructuring your business and have to make redundancies, we can guide you through the whole process.  We can help you negotiate exit packages, and draw up settlement terms where necessary.
