"The very professional, well-reputed and proactive employment team of Pinney Talfourd LLP provides clear, swift and knowledgeable advice, as well as good value for money" - The Legal 500 UK 2019
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.
We advise on all aspects of employment law for individuals, including senior executives looking to secure the right exit package, victims of discrimination at work or employees who have been selected as a candidate for redundancy.
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 takes into account 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.

We understand that speaking to a solicitor for the first time about any issue relating to employment worries can be a difficult and rather stressful experience. Our expert employment solicitors in Essex and London will be happy to undertake an initial interview over the telephone to provide you with some general legal advice. This will enable you to determine what the best next steps are for you to take.
Free initial telephone consultations are available at any of our offices located in Brentwood, Hornchurch or Upminster, or at our office facilities in Leigh-On-Sea and Canary Wharf, London. We understand that sometimes it is difficult to arrange calls during working hours, so we also offer early morning, late night and Saturday appointments. All offices are open until 7pm Monday-Thursday.
