Industrial relations

ServicesExpertiseEmploymentIndustrial relations

Any successful business will testify that good employee relations are absolutely essential.

However as businesses grow and change, maintaining employee relations can be challenging, particularly in the face of union resistance.

Industrial action has serious implications for an employer’s business and reputation. Preventing it requires rapid specialist legal action.

Our experience and expertise in this niche area is unrivalled. We help a diverse range of clients resolve their disputes and build an IR framework to minimise the risk of any occurring.

Whilst we are best known for injuncting industrial action, our longer term aim is to help our clients achieve and maintain good employee relations through strategic planning. This may include issues such as:

  • Dealing with union and employee representatives
  • Implementing union recognition and de-recognition
  • Providing information and consultation

Our promise

We act only for employers on industrial relations issues, removing any potential conflict of interest. We provide a fully integrated service, working where appropriate with a specialist ER consultancy to ensure a holistic approach to any ER and IR issues you may have.
