Paul Foster

Former SVP, Custom House Financial / Western Union

“I was very happy throughout the process with the levels of engagement, attention to detail and rapid turnaround times. I felt in safe capable hands at all times with Wyn.”


Managing Director

“Thank you for your legal advice and assistance to us in dealing with this stressful matter, you are a very focused and sensible attorney apart from all the other attributes that have brought you where your are. We are pleased it is over and are now ready to move on. It was a pleasure dealing with you and I wish you all the best in your professional and personal life as well.”

Adam Wells

Managing Director at The Fresh Olive Company Ltd

“We have worked with the team at Golden Leaver since inception and continue to be deeply impressed with the service we receive. They have handled a wide range of matters for us from straightforward HR related queries to more complex TUPE/reorganisation issues, employment law training programmes and everything in between. Perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay is that, despite now employing well over 100 people, we have yet to feel the need to develop our own dedicated HR function or department. This is entirely the product of the efficient, practical, commercial and easily digestible advice that the Golden Leaver team provide and they are a firm that I would not hesitate to recommend.”

Alison Doherty

Operations and HR Director at Long Tall Sally Ltd

“Golden Leaver have advised us for a number of years and we appreciate and rely on their business-focused advice and assistance. We have worked with them on issues that have mattered to us, both contentious and non-contentious, at the most junior and at senior level. We would highly recommend the firm to other businesses.”


Claudia Ackenson

HR Consultant at Charterhouse (Accountants) LLP and CharterhouseHR

”I have worked with Caroline, and indeed Golden Leaver, on a number of issues and have found her to be that rare type of expert, but also personable. Caroline has guided me through a couple of really tricky situations and has been both patient and helpful. Caroline, also takes the time to follow up on work done, showing a genuine interest in her clients and is supportive. I would recommend Caroline and the services of Golden Leaver to any business or HR Manager struggling with Employment issues.”


Liam Dunne

Managing Director at CommodityNet

“Caroline has been providing legal employment contract advice, support and delivery to my organisation. I have found her flexible, very knowledgeable and the quality of products has never been less than high. I will certainly contact Caroline again in the future and happily recommend her to others.”

Vanessa Hall

Vice President – HRD at Broadridge Financial Solutions Ltd

“I have worked with Wyn Lewis for several years on a number of complex employment law and HR issues, including litigation. He is supportive, pragmatic, clear in his advice and has an encyclopaedic knowledge of employment law. Wyn is always available to assist in person and with Golden Leaver our issues are not delegated to junior lawyers. I thoroughly recommend him to other HR managers and directors needing sound, commercial and strategic advice.”

Poppy Scott-Plummer

Owner of Little Owls Nursery School, London W14

“I was referred to Caroline Leaver at Golden Leaver for advice on the setting up of my nursery school in West London. The Golden Leaver team was accessible at all times and provided sensible and pragmatic advice that enabled me to get the right team in place, which was important for the establishment and success of the school.”

Mark Olszowski

Chief Operating Officer at Burgess

“Burgess is a global yacht brokerage, and one of our key business activities is managing crew on behalf of our yacht owners. We engaged Anna Moyle at Golden Leaver during 2013 to assist with several complicated employment issues, concerning both employees and crew members. We were impressed by her pragmatic approach, which always gave a sensible balance between employment law and commercial reality. This allowed us to settle cases within a sensible timeframe at an affordable cost.”

Senior Executive in the technology/software industry

“I was recommended to Jonathan Golden and Golden Leaver by a friend who is also a lawyer. I found Jonathan to be highly responsive, pragmatic and supportive, and his approach with his counterpart in the process was extremely professional and collegiate.”

A senior banking individual client

“Please accept my thanks for the superb job Golden Leaver did representing me and fighting my case.From the start Jonathan made sure (via his initial meeting with me) what I was about to embark on and the merits of my case. Jonathan and Lauren always sought to achieve the maximum result, whilst keeping a watchful eye on costs. During the process both were expedient in returning my calls and always on-hand to answer my questions.
As the case took time to reach its conclusion, Jonathan’s advice and support for me to keep ‘mentally strong’ was critical in me maintaining my faith during the process and of particular relevance in the eventual outcome. This kind of support forged a unique and genuine relationship with me, the client!
Lauren’s attention to detail in securing the final outcome, tying-up all ‘the ends’ and ensuring I was always kept up to date with her progress was greatly appreciated
I would highly recommend Golden Leaver to anyone seeking to be represented at the highest level.”
