HR legal advice

In all successful businesses, employers face commercial pressures. Our team understands how this affects staff and employer/employee relations. We provide realistic and practical legal advice on employment law to help employers manage these concerns.

We work with employers in many ways including guiding them through grievance and dismissal procedures, advising on ‘family friendly' rights, assisting in company restructures, advising on employee benefit structures and conducting seminars and workshops on tricky management issues, including tips for hiring and firing employees. Our aim in every case is to develop the strategies needed to keep the business running smoothly.

Our client list is diverse, ranging from global manufacturing businesses, PR companies, recruitment firms, hedge funds and hotels, to non-profit entities, luxury and consumer brands, retailers, family offices and a Formula One racing team. Many have operations around the world.
