Employees facing a dispute or legal issue can often feel powerless and troubled about their legal rights.

How can we help?

We can help you to achieve the best possible terms on entering into a new employment relationship or on promotion. Where relationships go awry, we can help you not only understand your rights, but prevent you from entering expensive and time consuming claims by achieving favourable settlement terms wherever possible.

Our experienced employment team provides a combination of legal, practical and commercial support to help you achieve the most favourable terms possible, both at the beginning and throughout employment or on termination. We also regularly advise on team moves and the impact of restrictive covenants and confidentiality provisions, as well as the threat of injunction proceedings.

We can advise on

  • Contractual disputes
  • Grievance and disciplinary matters
  • Harassment, bullying and discrimination
  • Immigration
  • Maternity, paternity and parental rights
  • Redundancy
  • Reviews of contracts of employment and service agreements
  • Rights and obligations as directors or shareholders
  • Settlement agreements
  • TUPE
  • Unfair dismissal
  • Whistleblowing

We always seek to avoid litigation wherever possible, preferring negotiation to achieve a more effective and favourable exit. However, where a case does require Employment Tribunal or High Court litigation, we take robust action on behalf of our clients.

In addition, our public affairs team is ideally placed to assist in minimising the impact of any adverse publicity arising from high profile exits.
