Why choose our employment law solicitors?

We understand how stressful dealing with problems at work can be. As well as allowing you to maintain your standard of living and provide for your family, feeling satisfied with your professional life is essential to your overall happiness, no matter what industry or seniority level you are at.

That is why we are committed to resolving your matter as swiftly and cooperatively as possible, minimising the risk of conflict escalating and causing you additional stress. In the vast majority of cases, we are able to settle without the matter getting anywhere near an Employment Tribunal.

We also advise employers, giving us unique insight into how employers think and how they like to resolve disputes. This will help us tailor our advice to your situation and give you the best chance of quickly finding a solution which is beneficial to you but also acceptable to your employer. Below are a few more reasons to consider instructing our firm:

Approachable and knowledgeable employment lawyers

As well as being highly knowledgeable about all aspects of employment law, we aim to give you the best customer experience possible. When you initially instruct us, you will be assigned a personal employment lawyer who will take full responsibility for your case.

This means you will never be “passed around” our team. Although various members of our team may work on your case from time to time to ensure it progresses as efficiently as possible, your personal lawyer will always be involved.

They will provide regular status reports and you will have a direct phone number and email address. So, if you have any concerns or questions, all you need to do is get in touch – we will always be happy to provide an update and reassure you if you need some extra support.

Support at every stage of your career

You will likely be in employment for the majority of your adult life and you will make many moves, changes, steps up, maybe even a few steps down, to build the career you want. We would be proud to be by your side throughout the journey.

We are not only here to help when things aren’t going well. We can also provide professional advice about everyday employment matters, such as contract review, pay negotiations, and employee share schemes. We aim to truly get to know our clients and their personal goals and employment objectives so we can find realistic solutions to your issues.

For these reasons, our clients stay with us for the long haul, knowing they can count on us any time they need some employment law advice.

Welcoming and inclusive environment

We welcome clients of all backgrounds and characteristics, such as people with disabilities, older people, and vulnerable adults. Please get in touch to discuss your situation and we will take all possible steps to accommodate your needs.

We know that employment issues can sometimes make you feel vulnerable and talking to a lawyer can be intimidating, for example, if you are facing issues such as discrimination, harassment, bullying or victimisation. As a progressive firm of friendly legal professionals, we aim to create a safe space for our clients to openly talk about their issues and worries. If there is anything we can do to make your experience more comfortable, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Flexible payment options

We know costs can be a worry, especially if an Employment Tribunal is the best option for getting the result you need. We will help you explore all payment options open to you to fund your employment case, including insurance cover either through a personal policy or membership of a trade union.
