Armed with an in-depth knowledge of all the very latest issues affecting employment law, our expert team is able to offer assistance to employers and employees alike, helping to avert as well as resolve problems in the workplace.

In the case of employers, we work with both private and public sector organisations to assess employment frameworks, make recommendations for improvements and assist in developing robust practices which can avoid potential disputes.

In addition to non-contentious work, where disputes have already arisen we are able to provide high-quality Tribunal representation, focusing on an early resolution where possible and providing practical advice throughout.

For employees who seek our assistance, we pride ourselves on being a friendly and down-to-earth team of lawyers who can offer practical legal guidance on a comprehensive range of workplace issues. These include pay, changes to terms and conditions, being overlooked for a promotion, discrimination, unfair dismissal, whistleblowing or specific circumstances which have affected their employment.

We are also able to offer expert advice in the field of professional discipline, assisting employees who work in regulated professions such as the education, medical, legal and accountancy sectors. If you require assistance in respect of professional discipline matters please contact Sharney Randhawa.
