Our Service

Common claims may include claims for redundancy payments, unfair dismissal, unpaid wages, bonuses or other unpaid remuneration, discrimination and failure to inform and consult (in relation to mass redundancies or a business transfer or reorganisation).

Collective disputes can be highly complex and require a thoughtful and bespoke approach. Our Employment Group Action solicitors provide clear and straightforward advice and we are experienced in managing the dynamics of a group action efficiently and effectively.

We have a proven track record and we are focused on achieving effective and affordable results.

There is strength and safety in numbers. As well as ensuring efficiency and cost effectiveness, acting as a Group or Class of employees in legal proceedings is powerful because the combined value of claims can be extremely high – employers cannot ignore Group Actions.

Our Approach

Our specialist team of employment solicitors is described in the independent Legal 500directory as “excellent”.  In addition, both Partners in our team are recommended by the Legal 500.  Therefore, you can be reassured that you will deal with some of the best employment solicitors in the country.

We are determined and robust on your behalf, but also easy to deal with and clear in our advice.  We will fight your corner but understand that a common sense approach is often required in order to find solutions that work for you in the context of your professional and personal circumstances.

Collectively, we have over sixty years’ experience of providing strategic employment law advice to senior individuals and others facing difficult work-place issues and who need support and guidance in:

  • understanding their legal rights and their practical options; and
  • achieving the best possible outcome, whether at the start, during or at the end of their working relationship.

Our ethos is to provide our clients with an alternative to the major regional and national firms by offering high quality legal advice from highly experienced, specialist lawyers, but on a much more cost-effective basis.

In particular, we offer:

  • Clear and straightforward advice.
  • Cost-effective support and certainty on costs where you need it.
  • Extensive experience of advising senior executives, directors, partners and others with complex employment concerns, including discrimination issues and group claims.
  • A credible team that is used to dealing with and acting against large employers and law firms on behalf of our clients.

Our approach to costs

We know 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 costs updates on a regular basis.

We 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 if that is helpful to you.

Can we help you?

Our employment law solicitors are based in Altrincham, South Manchester.  However, we act for individuals based across the UK, ranging from directors, partners and senior executives to groups of employees with collective concerns.

In particular, we often act for individuals who would otherwise look to the larger London or other city firms, but prefer our more cost-effective service.

Our expertise covers all aspects of the employment relationship and includes the areas detailed below.
