Employment for Individuals

Our team of specialist employment lawyers offers high quality employment advice.  We have many years’ experience of employment work, acquired both in the City and more locally.  Much of our work comes from word of mouth referrals.

We provide practical, cost-effective and commercially astute advice.  We listen to you carefully, so that we can deliver bespoke strategies and solutions to meet your objectives.  We are approachable, but when it comes to representing you, we are robust. 

For employees of all levels (often senior executives and directors), we provide clear, sympathetic, practical advice on all employment matters.  Individuals typically consult us for an informed steer at the first sign of trouble, constructive solutions when work is making them unhappy, negotiation of the best possible exit terms for settlement agreements, or guidance on staying on the right side of the law when joining a competitor.

We assist employees when things go wrong – for example, accusations of misconduct, dismissals, discrimination and harassment at work, problems with working relationships, pay and promotion issues.  We always aim to meet your objectives in ways that are as quick, cost-effective and stress-free as possible.  When other methods of dispute resolution fail, we are very experienced employment litigators and can conduct claims in the Employment Tribunals and beyond.

We frequently advise employees on settlement agreements.  If your employer has asked you to sign one, please get in touch by telephone or email and we can arrange a time that is convenient to go through the terms with you.  If the terms are fair and you are happy with them, we will help you to finalise your settlement agreement swiftly.  If you are not happy with the terms, we can advise you of your options and help you to decide upon the best way forward.  This could include negotiating more favourable terms.
