Employment law & HR

Our team of employment lawyers don’t just provide legal advice on all people issues. We spend our time learning about your business and understanding your objectives.

You’ll be able to call on us for help, advice and guidance throughout the employment relationship from recruitment and selection through to discipline and dismissal – and everything in-between.

Our team of specialist employment lawyers work with a mix of small to medium-sized, owner-managed businesses and large, household names.

As a result, we are used to dealing with, and tailoring our approach to meet the needs of both growing businesses and large organisations, dealing with managers, business owners and HR professionals.
