Why do I need employment advice from a Solicitor?

Remove stress and worry

Dealing with any form of dispute or issue in the workplace is stressful without the worry of ensuring that what you are doing is legally compliant. We can take that stress and worry from you whatever the issue may be.

Save time

Why spend hours ‘googling’ the answers or trying to work out what you should do. We guarantee to save you time so that you can focus on the important things in life and business.

Easy to understand guidance

There is nothing worse than trying to get advice from someone who speaks to you in long winded legal jargon. We have worked hard to shake the ‘lawyer’ out of our language so we can provide guidance and support in a way that is easy to understand and helps you to make important decisions.

Giving you peace of mind

We provide you with the peace of mind to know that whatever the outcome you have had up to date expert advice about the situation and have been well informed in your decision making.

Ensure legal compliance

For business owners and employers we will ensure that you are legally compliant and help to protect your business reputation and avoid costly legal disputes. Let’s face it no-one wants to find themselves at the Employment Tribunal or worse reported about in the local press!

Support free from judgement

We will provide the advice and options available to you and support your decision making without judgement. We are here to support you whatever you choose to do.
