Legal 500 & Chambers UK Recommendations

John Merry leads the team and is 'extremely personable' and 'knowledgeable', and 'translates employment law into easily understandable, pragmatic advice'.”

Will Morse is recognised as the head of our Legal 500 ranked Education team.

William Morse 'heads the practice and focuses predominantly on employment matters. He recently advised Severn Bridges Academy Trust on its formation and conversion to a multi academy trust'."

The 2019 edition of Chambers UK recognises this team as having a 'Recognised Practitioner' for the Midlands and ranks department head John Merry in Band 4, stating "John Merry of Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors is experienced in handling major restructurings and employment policy issues.

Covering the Cost of an Employment Law Dispute

One of our key aims at Lanyon Bowdler is to be as cost-effective as possible, and we offer a variety of pricing options, including fixed fees and service level guarantees, as well as, following an initial chargeable appointment, no win-no fee arrangements, if your claim has sufficient prospects of success and value.

Trade Unions have an obligation to help their members with legal claims, so if you are a union member we would encourage you to speak to them first.

It’s also worth checking your household or motor insurance policies, as well as any premium bank account or credit card, to see if they include insurance for legal expenses. In the vast majority of cases you have the right to appoint a Employment Solicitor of your choosing, so don’t feel obliged to use one of the insurer’s panel solicitors even if they encourage you to do so.
