We regularly act for employees, including senior executives, across all areas of business, and we deal with all employment issues.

If, as an employee, you have a grievance or are facing the termination of your employment, then we can assist you in dealing with your employers. If, as an employee, you believe you have been discriminated against or your employer is trying to take away one of your contractual entitlements, then we can assist you and, although we try to avoid pursuing litigation through the Employment Tribunal or Courts, we can represent you at these forums should it be necessary to do so. In the first instance we try to bring about a negotiated settlement, and if you are entitled to compensation we endeavour to obtain full compensation for you. We have represented employees on numerous occasions and we understand that a dispute with your employer can be stressful. We aim to remove that element of stress and will offer you sensible and pragmatic advice, keeping your legal costs to a minimum.

If you are a senior executive facing allegations of breaches of restrictive covenants and the threat of an injunction, we would be able to negotiate with your former employers and obtain a speedy resolution of any dispute to enable you to work with your new employer as you intended.

We do not only deal with litigation – we can assist you as well with your contracts of employment, explaining in simple English the “legal jargon”. If you need advice in relation to a severance package or new working arrangements which your employer is putting forward, then we can help you.
