We have experience in acting for organisations of all sizes and types, and can assist with the full spectrum of contentious and non-contentious issues.
Our aim is to find solutions that are right for your organisation and your particular circumstances. We take the time to understand your needs so we can provide you with practical and straightforward commercial advice.

We offer training for your management or any other staff you feel would benefit, including HR staff.
We write and deliver bespoke training on all employment issues, tailored to your requirements and budget. We discuss what you feel would be helpful for staff and design any programme around your needs. We also use your own policies and procedures as we want to ensure any training is going to be useful on a day-to-day basis in the workplace.
Employer Protection Scheme
We know that legal fees can sometimes be an unknown quantity.
We are therefore pleased to offer a fixed fee scheme, which is normally done on an annual retainer basis. We hope this will help you manage your legal costs.
As part of the Scheme, you can also choose to have employment disputes insurance which will provide you with protection in the event a claim is made.
As an integral part of the Scheme we will provide you with an employment health check in respect of your current contracts and employment procedures; access to high quality employment law/HR advice by telephone and/or email, as and when required; and claims representation under the terms of your insurance policy (if applicable).
For any advice required that is not covered by the Scheme, we will be happy to carry out any work at a reduced hourly rate.
