Employment Law Solicitors

Clear, pragmatic advice. A down-to-earth, get-straight-to-the-point approach. Our team of employment solicitors have huge experience in all areas of employment law – from employee disputes and grievances to employment tribunal claims. We also provide guidance and assistance on TUPE in outsourcing arrangements, mergers and acquisitions.

It is vital that we get to know your organisation, its challenges, its key personalities and your overall business needs. We then offer informed advice tailored to your business and your desired outcomes. We never sit on the fence with our views. Instead, we will draw on our experience to give you viable and realistic commercial options.
