Service overview

We provide a full employment law service for employers and employees alike in relation to all areas of employment law, whether contentious or non-contentious.

Employment issues often require prompt advice and we respond accordingly, providing you with pragmatic advice on your possible options and the best action to take. Our employment lawyers advise in a straightforward manner that is practical, commercial and personal, tailored to your specific needs and circumstances.

In addition to advising on standalone employment matters, our employment team also input into corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, for consideration of any TUPE, redundancy or transitional services arrangements that may apply.

Service highlights

We advise in relation to statutory and contractual rights, duties and obligations, both express and implied.
In addition to all matters connected with wrongful dismissal/notice, we also advise on all other breaches of contract, including disputes concerning bonus and commission entitlements.
We advise in relation to both the non-contentious aspects that arise from transactions or from service provision changes of any nature (typically tendering), and any TUPE connected litigation.
We advise on the applicability and enforceability of restrictive covenants, whether at the point of contract negotiation, during any re-organisation or following termination and in any subsequent dispute.
We advise and act for employers, employees, non-employee workers, self-employed consultants and partners/partnerships in relation to all aspects of unlawful discrimination, whether contained in the Equality Act 2010 or in other legislation concerning statutory protections, such as part-time and flexible working.
