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.
