Employment Law Solicitors

At Lanyon Bowdler, we specialise in employment law for employers. Our expert team of business lawyers aims to keep our clients’ employment law disputes to a minimum, and when they do arise we aim to ensure they are resolved in a swift and cost-effective manner. 

We don't just sell time; we sell experience, expertise, know-how and results. We will tailor our service, pricing and payment arrangements to suit your business and priorities, whether on a standalone basis or to complement your existing HR capabilities, from anywhere between providing unlimited 24/7 support for a fixed fee to providing “pay as you go” as-required assistance – backed by service level guarantees and, if selected, insurance cover against tribunal costs and awards, at a very competitive premium, through our market leading Axa policy.

The 2018 edition of Chambers UK recognises this team as 'Other Noted Firm' for the Midlands and ranks department head John Merry in Band 4, stating 'John Merry of Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors has expertise in TUPE and Employment Tribunal matters. A client says "I am always confident the information I am receiving is accurate and commercially favourable".'

Employment Law: Our Approach

We approach employment law for employers in the manner that will best suit the client’s requirements. This may mean applying a 'least risk', a commercially practical or an aggressive approach, depending on whether a client’s priority is to minimise exposure to risk, to reach a quick resolution or to discourage further claims of a similar nature.

Whatever your requirements, whether in relation to:

  • the preparation or variation of employment contracts and policies
  • day to day HR enquiries
  • tribunal / court claims
  • internal grievances
  • boardroom disputes
  • addressing issues relating to conduct, performance or attendance
  • terminations
  • redundancies and reorganisations
  • settlement agreements (formerly known as ‘compromise agreements’)
  • equal pay
  • restrictive covenants
  • employee transfers (TUPE)

Our specialist employment lawyers will be happy to assist you.
