About our work

The firm covers the whole field of employment law work, both contentious and non contentious.

On the contentious side, we represent employers and employees in the Employment Tribunal in cases of unfair dismissal, breach of contract, unlawful deductions from wages and sex, race, age and disability discrimination. We are able to offer our clients a one stop service which means that we are there with you from taking your original instructions right through to the hearing at Tribunal. We do almost all of our own advocacy on cases in the Employment Tribunals which means that we can offer you continuity and what we believe is a cost effective service. We also represent employers on appeals to the Employment Appeal Tribunal.

On the non contentious side, we advise employers on contracts of employment and other employment documentation which includes advice on drafting and enforcing restrictive covenants. We also advise on the implications of the Transfer of Undertakings Regulations which protect the rights of employees on the transfer of a business to a new employer. We provide ongoing advice to Human Resources Managers to help them to resolve potential employment disputes before they escalate into damaging and costly litigation. This can include visiting clients to provide interactive workshops designed to increase the awareness of line managers in dealing with sensitive issues such as discrimination in the workplace.

If you have an employment law problem, call us in confidence for a free initial consultation.
