About: Employers

Good employee relations are essential to the success of any business, helping to strengthen staff morale, enhance company culture and empower your recruitment and retention strategies. In contrast, the negative consequences of poor employee relations can be far reaching, both internally and externally. Our team of expert employment lawyers takes the time to understand your specific business and HR requirements.

Combining that knowledge with deep insights into the UK’s changing employment law framework, we provide practical and incisive advice tailored to your situation, values and budget.  We act for a diverse range of clients across the UK. In particular, we have substantial experience in providing employment law advice in the Courts and Tribunals where necessary, in a range of sectors, including:

  • financial services
  • professional legal, accountancy and surveying partnerships
  • property
  • information technology
  • media, public relations and publishing
  • retail
  • hospitality and catering
  • education
  • not for profit and charities

Our experience enables us to keep your employee relations on track. From day-to-day HR queries through to disciplinary, grievance, discrimination and whistleblowing issues, our team offers trusted support nationally from Plcs to start-ups.

We also advise on employment contracts, policies and procedures; reorganisations; outsourcing; redundancies and severance arrangements; long-term absences; and complex discrimination, whistleblowing claims and immigration. By enlisting Winckworth Sherwood, you enjoy the reassuring peace of mind that comes from a strategic, commercial and assured legal team – meaning you can concentrate on running your business.
