Employment law Solicitors

Employment law is increasingly complex, with legislation changing on a regular basis.

Employers face increasing responsibilities, with ever harsher penalties for non-compliance. At the same time, many HR teams find themselves having to do more with less as budgets are cut and resources are stretched. Employees need to be alive to how changes in the legislative framework could affect their individual roles and obligations.

Our solicitors are recommended in both Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, the two leading independent guides to the legal profession. Advising SMEs, PLCs, local authorities and not-for-profit and charitable organisations as well as senior executives, our employment lawyers have the experience and insights to deliver proactive commercial advice to help you achieve your objectives.

Whether you’re looking for strategic guidance on a group restructuring, pay evaluation redundancies, employment insurance or just practical and responsive knowledge on day-to-day HR issues, our employment solicitors in our Chester, Shrewsbury and Manchester offices can provide bespoke advice promptly and efficiently, protecting your interests and helping you achieve your objectives.
