Many organisations and businesses find themselves dealing with a number of employment law and HR related issues. The Employment law team offers commercial, practical advice and solutions. Getting the right advice at the right time can make a huge difference to your business, whether that advice helps you put in place the building blocks for continued success, or sometimes the advice can help you through a crisis. Our employment law Solicitor ensures that your needs are catered for, whether in the preparation of documents, advice, training and seminars or handling claims.
Clients expect a firm of solicitors to know the law. We pride ourselves on giving commercial and practical employment law advice for your business, letting you know the options and guiding you to the right solution.
Employment law is constantly evolving so it’s essential that as a business you are up to date. We believe that prevention is better than cure and can offer a broad service to ensure that your policies and procedures are legally compliant and capable of being understood. We can provide you with regular employment law briefings to update you on changes to the law.
Our Employment Solicitor understands that you often need fast-response assistance when dealing with employee issues. Given the barrage of legal obligations and responsibilities which employers have to deal with on a daily basis, and the destructive burden of legal proceedings on business, we emphasise the need for pre-emptive action.
Litigation can lead to unecessary costs and time away from your business. We will work carefully with you to draw up a strategy and process that minimises the potential disruption.
