We are ranked in the top tier of Legal 500 in the North West and act throughout the UK mainly for employers advising on all aspects of employment law. This can be before the start of employment relating to the recruitment process, during the employment relationship in helping with grievance, discrimination and absence issues for example and also dealing with what happens when the relationship ends including when claims are made through the Employment Tribunal. We appreciate that employers need advice quickly that is pragmatic, commercially astute and delivered in an unstuffy manner meaning it is easy to understand and implement. What is needed is a solution not a further set of legal problems. Even in the more complex areas, such as discrimination, the team ensures its clients have clear step by step guidance on what the right response is to any problem. We handle over a thousand Employment Tribunals each year and we believe our success rate in this area is second to none. The team also has a great deal of experience dealing with Trade Unions and Union related matters. We advise single and multi-site reorganisations involving both unionised and non-unionised workforces.
