Our Expertise

  • Redundancy & Dismissal

    We offer specialist advice to employers and employees facing tricky disciplinary and dismissal situations.

    We also represent parties in unfair dismissal and other claims before the Employment Tribunal.

    In redundancy situations it is vital that correct and fair procedures are followed. We can guide you through this often complex area.

    We also advise businesses and affected employees when TUPE situations arise.

  • Settlement Agreements

    A written Agreement in which an Employee or ex-Employee agrees terms surrounding the termination of their employment is both necessary and beneficial to both sides of the employment relationship.

    We have vast experience of drafting such Agreements for Employers and advising Employees.

  • Restrictive Covenants

    Post-termination restrictions are often a contentious issue and need to be carefully considered if they are to be enforceable on termination of employment.

    We are able to advise both Employers and Employees in this somewhat complex area.

  • Contracts of Employment & Service Agreements

    Advice on the drafting and variation of employment terms to ensure protection and clarity for both parties.

    We also can advise and assist in the preparation of policies to be adopted in the workplace, such as whistleblowing, e-mail, and health & safety.

  • Grievance & Disciplinary Procedures

    Assistance with formulating procedures and advice with regard to issues that might arise in the course of a grievance and/or disciplinary process.

  • Discrimination

    Whether on the grounds of age or sex, or resulting from a medical condition or disability, or from religion or belief the rights of the Employee and the duties of the Employer can be explained.

    We can assist and advise in discrimination claims before the Employment Tribunal.
