DJM Solicitors



Regardless of the size of your business, you will be affected by the law relating to the employment of your staff. As a result of the ever-changing nature of law in this field, it is imperative that you receive accurate and commercially sound advice as quickly as possible. 

We will use negotiation and conciliation to reach the most amicable and commercially sensible resolution possible, but when this is not possible, we can ensure that you are properly and fully armed to take on any dispute that arises. 

We pride ourselves on providing a holistic commercial service to our clients and the ability of our Employment Team to work closely with our Corporate/Commercial and Dispute Resolution Teams means that our clients really do get the best service possible at a commercially justifiable cost. Despite having employment related cover as part of their business insurance, our clients consistently choose to instruct us to deal with their employment issues as they feel more confident that the matter will be handled in accordance with their specific requirements.

Our style is to establish a close working relationship with our clients so that we know the business and understand its needs.  This allows us to be on-hand to assist with problems as they arise as opposed to being called in to try to rescue an already problematic situation. Our advice is tailored to the needs of our clients. Our employment lawyers are commercial lawyers and this is reflected in their commonsense and proactive approach. 

We advise on a range of matters including: 

  • Representation in employment tribunals and other courts
  • Wrongful and unfair dismissal cases
  • Redundancies and restructuring
  • Compromise Agreements
  • Contracts of employment and directors service agreements
  • Company and staff handbooks
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Managing sickness and absence control
  • Disciplinary and grievance procedures
  • Transfer of Undertaking Regulations (TUPE)
  • Discrimination issues
  • Maternity/Paternity rights
  • Breach of contract


Our commercially led approach is epitomised by our Employer Protection Scheme which allows our employer clients to set a budget for employment law costs, whilst giving them access to an unlimited employment helpline and protection from costly employment litigation costs and damages by way of independent insurance policy.
