Employment Law for Businesses

Employment issues can be tricky and they go to the heart of an organisation, no matter what its size. Employment law is constantly changing and it can be a full time job for the professionals to keep abreast of all developments. When workplace issues become disputes, we recognise that our clients need support from lawyers who will really fight their corner, in a cost effective way.

Our dedicated employment law team offers practical, cost-effective and tailored advice to businesses of all sizes on all aspects of employment law, from implementing compliant policies and contracts, to advising upon specific disputes within the workplace and where necessary, representing the interests of our clients in the employment tribunal or the courts. Our employment law service is headed up by one of our founders, Amanda Jefferies.

Amanda has extensive experience of advising a wide variety of businesses on all sorts of employment law issues and takes a keen interest in the businesses for which she acts to enable her to provide appropriate, common sense and cost effective advice. Amanda and the team like to work in partnership with their clients and build lasting relationships with them.

We can guide you through everything from recruitment to retirement and advise you upon strategic decisions involving your staff or offer advice on day to day problems within the workplace.

We are always happy to have an initial free telephone conversation with you to discuss how we can help and to discuss a range of funding options. We will always do our best to make you aware of anticipated costs at the outset of a case so that you can plan and budget for them. Many of our clients chose to work with us on a retainer basis. Please contact Amanda should you require any further details about this or alternative methods of funding.

We also provide in house training sessions for organisations on a wide variety of employment law topics and can design training courses specifically suited to the needs of your business. Please contact us for further details.
