We provide a service to match, or often better, that offered by conventional law firms but at a much more competitive rate. 

We build long-term relationships with our clients, invest time in understanding each businesses to build strong relationships with managers. Our employment specialists are highly experienced employment lawyers  and offer commercially minded service as well as operationally aware advice.

The options below demonstrate how we can tailor our support to meet your needs:

Based on an agreed hourly or daily fee for advice on aspects of employment law and completing straightforward tasks.

Offering peace of mind that someone that knows your business is on hand when you need them most.  Once we know the size and structure of your business and the number of managers that might use the service, we can give you a competitive, value-for-money quotation for highly flexible support – there is no annual, or longer tie-in.  You can terminate the contract with one month's notice. 

You pay a fee based on an estimate of how much you will use the service.  It is reviewed when we know the actual uptake.  For example fees for smaller businesses start from around only £1,500 (plus VAT) per year.  Our average contracts are in the range of £5,000 to £9,000 whilst, depending on the number of employees, a contract for a larger firm might be higher.

Usually used in conjunction with a fixed-price contract to protect you from any unforeseen legal costs.

We provide a fully-costed proposal for larger jobs to support HR: a comprehensive review of pay and benefits, restructuring, job evaluation et cetera.

Under New SRA Transparency rules, we are required to provide information about the cost of claims for unfair dismissal and wrongful dismissal. Detailed information can be found on the 'Transparency' page of this website here

Employment law and HR update

Our annual update events were held in Manchester and London at the start of June and once again were a great success.  Thank you to all those who attended.

The audit was a good starting point to review the overall effectiveness of our HR services. The consultants analysed a lot of key data, highlighted where we were doing well and gave us some firm recommendations on the priorities for action. It was a useful to get an independent perspective on how we were performing.
