Employment law is always changing and evolving and we recognise that it can be very difficult for employers to be sure that they are taking the right action.
We have long experience in the field and can offer practical advice that you can rely on.

We can assist by:

  • Drafting contracts of employment and associated documentation
  • Advising on disciplinary and pre-dismissal protocols
  • Preparing Compromise Agreements and advising on suitable terms of severance
  • Reviewing existing contracts and arrangements
  • Advising on employment issues within a business purchase or sale (TUPE)
  • Providing advice on ad hoc issues as they arise
