Whether you are an employee or an employer, employment disputes are time-consuming, stressful and costly. Our aim is to work personally with all our clients in order to understand their dispute and get it resolved as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. We are proficient in all areas of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration; however, if it becomes clear that litigation is unavoidable, we will represent you in a competent, well-prepared, professional manner. Our employment team has a well-established success record when it comes to litigating on behalf of clients, and our skills and expertise within the employment law tribunal recognised throughout the United Kingdom.
Negotiation permeates through much of employment law. From employment contracts through to disputes resolutions, our employment solicitors work with both employers and employees, ensuring all clients come away from the negotiating table in a position that benefits their best interests and/or business goals.

Our courses include:
