Protecting your greatest asset

Our commercially-minded approach to employment law puts your employees and business objectives first, and ensures your organisation has the appropriate structure and strategy in place.

We support businesses of every size and shape – from sole traders and partnerships to regional and national charities, corporates, major multinationals and local SMEs. Our advice ranges from mergers and acquisitions to day-to-day employment issues, breaches of contract, TUPE transfers and unfair dismissal and discrimination. We also resolve complex immigration issues for employers hiring overseas talent. So, whatever the scope of your employment needs, we can support you throughout.

We will spend time getting to know you or your business so that we understand your concerns and aims, and can guide you through the complexities of employment with these in mind.
