About: Employment

Our employment lawyers act for employers and employees, so we see both sides of workplace issues. This is unusual among City law firms. It means we understand the strategies and tactics commonly used by either side, and can make that knowledge work for you. Our team is recognised as Top Tier in the Legal 500 Directory 2020. Our clients benefit from the breadth of experience we have developed advising a wide range of organisations across the UK.

Clients include public limited organisations, leading financial and regulatory bodies, family offices, global PR and media, City law firms, Inns of Court, hedge funds and private equity firms, partnerships, senior executives and employees.

This diverse client base gives us the experience and knowledge to provide informed and commercial solutions to achieve the best results for you.

Clients trust us to provide astute commercial solutions. Whatever the method – whether through mediation, arbitration, High Court hearings or employment tribunal proceedings – our employment team combines determination and intelligence to deliver the best possible outcome.

A commercial and strategic partner for employers

If you are an employer, we will take the time to understand your business and your market. We will combine our legal expertise and commercial awareness to provide intelligent solutions suited to your situation and to your culture, avoiding unnecessary – and expensive – litigation whenever possible. We will also keep you informed of the latest changes in employment law and what they mean for your organisation.

High quality advice for employees

For employees, we will ensure you understand the legal and practical options available. Dealing with employment issues or disputes can be stressful and worrying. We will take the time to support and guide you throughout the process, advise you on the strategy and agreeable solution best suited to your needs. We also pride ourselves on being open and straightforward on costs, keeping you updated at all times and whenever possible recovering these for you.
