Our Services

Our Employment lawyers have a wide range of experience across the whole employment litigation spectrum.

Most contentious employment matters are dealt with in the Employment Tribunal (such as unfair dismissal and discrimination claims). However, parties can also take action through the Courts such as for high value, breach of contract claims and obtaining or defending injunction applications.

Our Employment lawyers collectively have over fifty years’ experience in advising both employers and employees in the Employment Tribunals and the Courts. All members of our team have advocacy experience and we are specialists in dealing with complex, high value cases.

We have particular expertise in relation to claims and group actions concerned with:

  • Discrimination and unfair treatment connected with pregnancy or maternity;
  • Whistleblowing;
  • Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) and business transfers;
  • Collective or mass redundancies;
  • Claims in relation to consultation on business transfers and mass redundancies;
  • Employment rights on employer insolvency, administration, reorganisation and restructuring.
