How we can help

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 The Legal 500 (2023). 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. 

Charging information

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.

The current range of hourly rates for members of the team is from £165 plus VAT to £450 plus VAT per hour.

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.
