Employment law advice for HR teams, start-ups SMEs and large corporates

Employers must actively manage their businesses – including taking tough employment decisions when necessary. Availability, speed, accuracy and clarity of advice are all vital. But even more important are the adviser’s abilities to listen, to grasp the situation on the ground and to provide a service tailored to that business context.

We work as part of our employer clients’ teams to support decision-making processes, ensuring that decisions are robust and where necessary defending them against challenge. Much of this work is behind the scenes – keeping our clients out of the Courts and Tribunals and so more able to focus on ensuring greater success for their organisations.

No employment issue is without risk. But ultimately the greatest employment risk for any organisation is to let things slide. Having our specialist expertise and hands-on approach throughout , gives our clients the added confidence to take a firm grip, to reward excellence, deal with mediocrity (or worse) and build for the future.
