We have considerable experience of dealing with claims of sexual harassment, whistle blowing, transfer of undertakings (TUPE), redundancy pay and unlawful deductions from your wages. We also advise on settlement agreements, equal pay and flexible working requests.

We deal with all matters relating to your treatment at work, including unfair dismissal, redundancy pay or discrimination on the grounds of age, disability, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

We advise on personal immigration issues.

Whether your case is being funded by you or you have the support of a legal expense insurer or a trade union you will find our approach to costs fair and transparent. If you are asked to enter into a settlement agreement, we can usually negotiate that all, or a substantial proportion of your fees are paid by your employer.

We cannot provide advice to individuals prior to them becoming clients. However, we can quickly set you up as a client and arrange an appointment for you. To assist further, we offer a fixed fee service for individuals who wish to take some initial advice. Further details of our fixed fee scheme can be found here.

The group is commended for an “excellent quality of work,” with the “infrastructure to have experts within their field, but also small enough to have the working relationship with key people.”

Another source has a “very good overall impression” of the team: “They tailor their advice to suit us, and they build up a rapport with you in terms of your business.”
