Employment Law Services

Employment Disputes

We represent clients in Employment Tribunals all around the country and in the Employment Appeal Tribunal

Employment / HR Advice

We provide day to day advice to our clients on every possible issue that might arise in the workplace

For example:

  • Flexible working requests;
  • Reasonable adjustments for employees with disabilities;
  • Health and attendance problems;
  • Performance issues;
  • Personality clashes and a breakdown in relationships;
  • Bullying and harassment;
  • Inappropriate banter;
  • Discrimination;
  • Disciplinary issues;
  • Grievances;
  • Maternity leave and pay issues;
  • Settlement Agreements – and Without Prejudice conversations

We provide our clients with as much or as little input as they require, up to and including managing the particular process and preparing all scripts and letters

Restrictive Covenants

We advise companies who want to enforce post-termination restrictive covenants – e.g. where ex-employees have poached clients, set up in competition, or are using confidential information

We also defend ex-employees and their new employers against this type of claim

Our clients include insurance brokers, technology companies, solicitors, estate agents and investment managers

Boardroom Disputes

Sometimes you need to remove a director/shareholder who is not pulling their weight and is holding you back

We can walk you through the process and produce all the letters/documents/scripts you will need to get the job done with minimum fuss

Restructuring and Redundancies

We help companies, local authorities and others plan and implement reorganisations and deal with the changes in terms and conditions and the redundancies which are often part of the process.

We are experienced in dealing with workers’ representatives and trade unions.

Buying & Selling Companies

We offer support to in-house legal teams and external law firms in dealing with the employment aspects of sales/purchases.

Typically this will involve due diligence, working on the documentation, advising on risks, advising on TUPE if it applies.

Data Protection

We advise a number of private and public sector employers on data protection issues and disputes in an Employment/HR context

This is a rapidly expanding area of work with the GDPR being implemented in May 2018

HR Investigations

Often, your internal HR team will carry out investigations into disciplinary issues, allegations  of bullying and harassment etc

Sometimes, however, where the issues are particularly complex or sensitive, it is best for the investigation to be carried out by a specialist firm

We will work with your HR team, and your existing lawyers if they are involved, and will make sure the work is carried out swiftly and efficiently

Also, we can often make use of “legal privilege” to protect against the obligation to disclose all relevant documents if the matter results in a claim or an individual makes a Subject Access Request
