Employment Law

Employment law is a complex area that is constantly changing and we provide expert advice and assistance on the full range of issues involved.

Our Employment solicitors have considerable experience advising individuals and organisations on a wide range of matters – from the most complex employment tribunal claims to draft compromise agreements.

We, of course, understand that clients need clarity and transparency on the issue of costs – we have a range of fee options depending on the nature of the advice and assistance required.
