Our Service

It is very important commercially, as well as from an employee relations perspective, to manage employees fairly and effectively and to deal with any disciplinary and grievance issues as efficiently as possible.

Our employment team deals with a wide range of disciplinary and grievance matters and can assist employers with planning a strategy for dealing with these matters as well as assisting at each step in the process.

Our Approach

We are aware that clarity on costs is vitally important to our clients. As standard practice, we give our clients an estimate of the costs involved in undertaking any piece of work at the outset. We then provide cost updates on a your case on a regular basis.

We also work closely with our clients to ensure that we meet their expectations both in terms of their objectives for a particular piece of work and in relation to costs. In addition, we are happy to discuss fixed fees and retainer arrangements and agreements if that is helpful to you.

Finally, your work is carried out by a solicitor in the team, who knows your business best. It is also carried out at the appropriate level, depending on the complexity, sensitivity and importance of the matter.
