Our approach to Businesses
Most employers view the complexities of employment law as an impediment to what they want to achieve in business. Although our extensive and comprehensive knowledge of employment law is a vital part of our armoury, our approach is to work with clients to establish exactly what they are looking for and find the solution which fits them best. Generally the solution which fits an employer client will require a commercial approach and careful direction from us, but it also tends to be simple and direct. The right action at the right time invariably saves costs for employers in the long term.
Our approach to Individuals
When acting for individuals we adopt the same approach. Individuals can be focused on what they believe their rights to be rather than working out what they really want. When contacting employers on their behalf or advising employers, directors or partners how to do so in person, our aim is to encourage an employer to recognise and resolve problems which exist and resolve them, and where necessary, pay appropriate compensation. This allows us effectively to negotiate exit packages and settlement agreements.
What if a client needs ancillary advice?
We understand that at times our clients will need advice which is outside our area of expertise. Therefore, we have a network of advisers whose work we rate highly and can advise our clients on immigration, tax, long-term incentive schemes, share option schemes, employee benefits, employee shareholder schemes, pension set-ups, commercial disputes and company law.
