We help employers (ranging from London based, to national and multi-national employers) ensure that their contracts, policies and procedures are appropriate, effective and up-to-date, taking into account all relevant developments in employment law.

Employers regularly seek our advice on:

  • contracts of employment
  • service agreements
  • confidentiality obligations
  • restrictive covenants
  • staff handbooks and rules for employees
  • disciplinary and grievance procedures

Clear documents and policies ensure that both sides know where they stand. With our help you can be confident of being adequately protected and able to run your organisation effectively.

Our team

We are one of a relatively small number of employment law teams that is highly recommended in Legal 500 (the independent legal research directory), which notes that:

  • we frequently handle ‘high-value senior executive employment cases’” (2015)
  • we are "extremely thorough and client-focused" (2014)
  • we "have a strong practice representing both senior executives and employers" (2014)
  • our employment team "provides 'exemplary' service'" (2013)
  • we are "'more alive to the issues' than some competitors and a regular opponent of heavyweight firms'" (2012)
  • We are a six-strong team of specialist employment lawyers.
  • We act for employers of all sizes in all sectors. We are equally happy offering a thorough review of a business's policies or drafting a one-off contract.
  • Our rates are competitive. If you ask us to draft documents, we will normally be able to agree a fixed fee in advance.

Charges are usually based on our hourly rates plus administrative charges and disbursements. We will provide you with an initial estimate of your likely legal costs and will update this as your requirements or the circumstances of the work change.

We may also be able to offer fixed priced options for work such as drafting of contracts, policies and handbooks.

We would be pleased to discuss your requirements free of charge and tailor a costs proposal accordingly.
