Employee Services

Our employment team provide a specialist service representing senior level executives and board directors (often at FTSE 250 companies), entrepreneurs, high net worth individuals and those in high profile positions.

We provide advice on all aspects of employment law, including: reviewing employment contracts/service agreements at the offer stage, advice on the merits and quantum of a potentially high value claims, bringing a claim in the employment tribunal, advice on tactics when negotiating settlement agreements, bonus disputes, board room disputes, partnership disputes, advice on discipline and grievance procedures, team moves, defending injunctions and High Court proceedings, redundancy advice, unfair dismissal advice, maternity and pregnancy related claims, advice on all areas of discrimination.

We often advise on complex and high value employment litigation. We advise senior executives on the best way to maximise their position whether via litigation, negotiation or mediation (private or judicial).

We recognise that there are some disputes where the parties wish to resolve a dispute and continue working together and other situations where the parties want to come to a workable solution via a managed parting of the ways. We help to do this in an organised way that is conscious of your professional reputation and the need for confidentiality. 

We are known for our supportive, commercial, pro-active and no nonsense approach which allows our clients to get on with their own busy professional lives.
