Employment

Employment law is a complex and fast developing area in which employers and employees benefit from fair and effective management.

The high profile cases reported in the press often relate to high earners. Some awards, such as those for discrimination or whistleblowing are unlimited and can be substantial. Others, for example, for unfair dismissal, are capped, but unfair dismissal awards may still be considerable and are currently subject to an overall ceiling of £92,585 (a compensatory award of £78,335) or 52 weeks' pay whichever is the lower.

We are specialists in this field of work, and advise on all aspects of employment law, from appointment to dismissal. We advise both employers and employees. This gives us a valuable insight into the employment relationship and the need to provide effective, commercial, and imaginative solutions.  By their nature, employment disputes can be highly confidential and have critical reputational significance for both parties. These require the highest degree of discretion, support and responsiveness.

We offer discreet advice in the event of potential disputes.  We represent parties openly on the record in the event that disputes become litigious. We litigate in the employment tribunal and in the Senior and County Courts.
