Our Employment Law Department is recognised as one of the leading employment law teams in Essex and London by The Legal 500, an independent and definitive guide to the best law firms in the UK.
Our experienced solicitors in Essex and London are aware that life as an employee has become increasingly complicated. Whether you find yourself in a dispute with your employer or need assistance to negotiate your employment terms or exit package, you should have professional legal advice that considers the sensitivity often required in employment situations whilst protecting your interests and rights.
We understand that you cannot always control when and how an employment problem may arise. If matters are not handled effectively, the consequences can be considerable in terms of financial loss, time and stress. Many cases that end up as protracted and expensive disputes could have been resolved much earlier with the right legal advice and the correct approach. There are some instances, however, where there is no alternative but to fight. If this is the case, we will vigorously pursue actions on your behalf.
We take a practical and authoritative approach to ensure we achieve the best results for our clients. We provide a wide range of services including immediate telephone support for urgent workplace problems. Whilst we cannot provide specific advice before you become a client, we can give you an honest assessment of whether you would benefit from advice and discuss in general terms your options. Naturally, everything you tell us will be in complete confidence.
Please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone to speak with a solicitor from our employment team, without obligation, or simply fill out our enquiry form and one of our specialist employment lawyers will contact you.
