Employment

With a vast experience of acting for both employer and employee, we provide balanced, objective and practical advice to ensure the best possible outcome for our clients.

Employment issues are sometimes complex and often contentious, which is why our clients, whether they be SME’s or larger organisations, individuals or senior executives, appreciate our professionalism and calm approach.

Our experience in all aspects of the employer-employee relationship, whether supporting individual or corporate clients, means we are ideally placed to provide guidance and practical advice in the following areas:

  • Business Re-organisation & Redundancy
  • Disciplinary & Grievance Procedures
  • Share Options
  • Employment Contracts
  • Employee Benefits & Incentive Schemes
  • Directors’ Duties and Liabilities
  • Performance, Conduct & Capability Related Dismissals
  • Unfair or Wrongful Dismissal
  • Breach of Contract
  • Restraint of Trade Clauses
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Discrimination
  • Victimisation, Bullying and Harassment

For situations where disputes cannot be resolved through negotiation and mediation, we have considerable experience litigating at Employment Tribunals, Employment Appeal Tribunals as well as in the High Court. Our team has particular expertise in defending disqualification proceedings and misconduct or compliance default claims brought by professional regulators.

Our team of employment specialists work hand-in-hand with our clients and their HR departments, providing the guidance and reassurance that only experienced, professional support can deliver.
