In recent months I have the pleasure to be assisted by a good number of the Paris Smith legal teams on a range of matters including sale of business, IPR and employment matters. Referring to the most recent experience with a company employment matter, I would commend Charlotte and Tabytha most highly for the service they provided to me. They give clear information so one knows what the legal position is and support that with a pragmatic commercial approach to help resolve the real life situation. I felt much more comfortable after speaking with the Paris Smith Employment team and would like them to be our preferred partner in relation to these legal matters.
As a relatively new client of Paris Smith I have been incredibly impressed by the professionalism and quality of advice given to me, and the company, by both Charlotte and Tabytha. Assuming a pivotal role within a global company has presented issues in terms of Brexit and the movement of inter company personnel. Engaging with Charlotte and Tabytha early has allowed us to navigate the legal complexities of Visa issuance and sponsorship with ease, something we would have struggled with without their sound advice. Explaining complex legal jargon in a simple and clear format along with an enthusiastic and professional approach has helped us immensely and it has, and will continue, to be a pleasure to be a client of Paris Smith. A first class service!
Our organisation has been working with Paris Smith for a few years, but I was first introduced to Charlotte Farrell and Tabytha Cunningham in the summer of 2021 when we applied for a Skilled Worker Sponsorship Licence. Having never worked in this area before, and finding the UKVI website and CoS application process confusing, we asked for their help. They made everything so much easier for us – from writing some of the wording needed to back up our case to producing a step by step guide on what we needed to do from start to finish. They have helped us with everything we have needed – CoS allocation increase, priority applications, creating and assigning a CoS, a new licence application due to change in circumstances, the list is long. They are extremely knowledgeable, very patient and always respond to emails or phone calls quickly. They provide an absolutely excellent service with a smile and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
I have been a client of Paris Smith's Employment law department for several years, including for the resolution of a challenging worker-related dispute. The team has been superb throughout, far exceeding my expectations in terms of their professionalism, proactiveness, pragmatism and generous spirit, often going above and beyond in their service delivery to bring the matter to a far better than hoped for conclusion. At a personal level, everyone I dealt with was delightful too. Paris Smith will certainly remain by 'go to' law firm for employment and other legal advice!
Your advice and guidance on a recent employment matter was extremely helpful, to the point and gratefully appreciated. I would be happy to recommend Paris Smith who were efficient and thorough in the legal service and advice offered. I felt relieved and secure with the support, counsel and your professional manner throughout.
I have recently absorbed a new HR role and have needed to get reassurance, advice, confirmation from Paris Smith on a number of different situations over that past 5 months including, redundancies, resignations and terminations, salaries and hourly rates for part time employees, diversity in the workplace. Charlotte and Tabytha have been brilliant and so supportive with me stepping into this role and have reassured me that what I have learnt on my HR studies and what I do on a daily basis, is correct and as advised for best practice. They are quick to respond and happy to help in any way. They are both down to earth but at the same time providing a quality service
PHL have worked with Paris Smith since 2016 who have provided exceptional employment law advice and support over the years. They have provided various advice on employee case management situations, self-employed status, union, TUPE, IR35 and NHS AFC legislation advice to name a few. I find them a professional, friendly, approachable team who provide a quick turnaround on support and advice. They are always quick to respond in a professional manner, breaking down the complexities of employment law and regulations talking through possible options. We also enjoy the regular HR seminars they invite us to which consist of employment law updates, case study examples and a chance to meet the team.
I needed employment advice regarding a settlement agreement and was recommended by another solicitor. Charlotte offered swift advice within a very challenging time scale. I found the combination of the professionalism, speed and pragmatism shown by Charlotte to be excellent. She really did care about my situation. Charlotte Farrell was simply first class.
Charlotte has gone well beyond what could reasonably be expected to bring an employment matter to a timely conclusion. Throughout the process she has been very helpful, understanding and friendly, provided clear and succinct advice, and regular updates.
I was recently made redundant and needed legal representation. I have found Charlotte to be very helpful and hardworking, checking for my understanding throughout and working to ensure she met what was an incredibly tight deadline. Overall this has made a difficult situation much less stressful. I would like to thank Charlotte for her expertise and her personable approach, allowing me to wrap up a difficult time with a satisfactory outcome.

Charlotte and Tabytha were an amazing source of support, guidance and expertise during one of the most challenging times of my employment life. Their commitment and willingness to go the extra mile to help me was so valued and appreciated. We concluded the case with me securing enough financial recompense to cover my losses which meant so much to me and my family. I would not hesitate to highly recommend the support of Charlotte and Tabytha for any employment tribunal case.
Paris Smith is a fantastic company with departments for all areas. Not only are they a fast responsive team they are good at what they do and are easy to communicate with. They have helped review all of my employment documents across three companies, tying them all up together with the correct documentation and making it easy for me to move forwards with minor editing. They were sympathetic to my new company as this only had start up funds and so I was working to a budget!. I found them willing to help me, and were interest in my business and projects. Really trying to understand and suggest what was best for me. I am continuing to work my way round the departments so all areas of business meet current legislation. I look forward to future business.
Outstanding service provided by Tabytha Cunningham and her colleague Charlotte Farrell. I would highly recommend Tabytha as she provided exceptional and first class legal advice on an elongated dispute with my previous employer. Tabytha is very professional and her attention to detail is astounding. Tabytha is honest, hardworking, trusted and a brilliant individual working for a well sought after legal company - she is a real credit to Paris Smith LLP. Tabytha kept me in the loop and did exactly as she said she would and I was never let down. After two years I was grateful for Tabytha's tenacity and her extreme passion in her role. Highly recommended.
Truly the most informative, relevant, and interesting course I've done. It's so useful to have the chance to hear from the law firm and HR and be able to ask any queries. Courses like this help massively in giving us the confidence and knowledge to carry out the processes correctly.
