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're here to help. Speak to us about any of the following, or get in touch to talk to us about something specific:
Banking & Finance
Corporate & Commercial
Estates, Trusts & Wills
Family & Divorce
Our team has a wealth of experience in providing legal advice to businesses and individuals on an array of issues.
