We understand that, when employment issues become disputes, clients need lawyers who will work with them closely and who will fight their corner in an intelligent, commercial and cost effective manner. We have an appreciation of the tactics used by both employers and employees and a balanced understanding of the common issues involved and how best to deal with them.
We assist our clients with resolving disputes before they result in proceedings being brought, including assisting with responding to grievances and liaising with ACAS in relation to early conciliation and settlement.
We also regularly advise clients in relation to defending Employment Tribunal and High Court litigation on behalf of our clients.
