Advice and guidance to suit all your employment law needs from ground up strategic advice and planning, to crisis intervention and management.
We collaborate with employers of all sizes, business owners and HR professionals to provide seamless and bespoke employment law support from contracts and handbooks, through to HR queries, restructures and handling Employment Tribunal claims.
We take the time to understand our clients’ needs and priorities. This means that, wherever we can and without any charge, we will arrange an introductory meeting virtually or on-site and will also offer to attend board or senior management meetings periodically – that way we really get to understand how you work, what is going on in your business, your goals and what makes you tick.
We can provide a cost effective in-house advisory service for those clients who need more strategic input from us, as well as helpline and retainer-style arrangements for those needing ad hoc advice.

We undertake four main types of work for employers:
Day-to-day HR legal advice
We provide clear and pragmatic advice on day-to-day employment law matters such as disciplinary and grievance issues, managing sickness absence and family leave entitlements. We also prepare and review key employment documentation including employment contracts, policies and handbooks to ensure they’re legally compliant, and are fit for purpose.
Large & complex issues
Experts in project managing more complex HR legal issues, we can support you by freeing up your time to manage your business. We can deal with everything from ending an employment relationship (including negotiated exits and settlement agreements) to restructuring, redundancies and TUPE transfers.
Employment Tribunal Claims
We can help lessen the pain an Employment Tribunal claim can cause by working with you, from the first contact through ACAS to a final Employment Tribunal hearing. We’ll advise you about the strength of your defence and tactical considerations.
We are transparent on our fees too, providing detailed estimates of each stage of a Tribunal claim. View our Employment Tribunal guide to fees here.
We understand the importance of cost certainty and have developed fixed pricing menu options. In every case, the documents we prepare will be tailored to your business.
