Good employment relations are crucial to the smooth running of any successful business. We deal proactively with employment problems before they result in an Employment Tribunal claim - most workplace problems can be solved quickly if managed correctly.
However if a dispute cannot be resolved amicably, we will provide sound commercial advice on any claim brought against you, including a cost and risk analysis of all the options available.
On a corporate level, we provide advice on the employment aspects of major business decisions such as restructures/redundancies, business acquisitions, mergers and sales. We will set out clearly the options open to you so that you are in the best position to make a commercial decision. We will guide you through the necessary procedures to ensure that you comply with the requirements of this ever-changing area of law.
We place heavy emphasis on continuous training and professional development to ensure that our technical expertise can be taken as read. We will also provide you with regular newsletters, email news alerts, seminars and bespoke training programmes to ensure that your decision makers are kept up-to-date with employment law developments.
