Our Approach

We understand that employment disputes are stressful, time consuming and a drain on resources. That's why to begin with we will always speak with you to understand your issues and identify your objectives. We don't use confusing legal jargon and we will provide you with transparent pricing from the outset, and we will regularly re-visit with you your objectives. 

Part of Your Team

From the moment you make contact with us, we consider that we are part of your team. You may instruct us to draft a contract of employment for you, or write workplace policies for you, or you may instruct us to deal with a complex Employment Tribunal claim. Either way, we have the skills, know how and expertise
