“They know our business and are able to relate very well to the circumstances of the situation and the impact that would have. They’re very approachable individuals and very engaging. They aren’t just a solicitor at the end of a phone, they actively want to be a part of it and to have an understanding of our business. Based on my personal experience of using Actons over the last 18 months, I would certainly recommend them.”
Diane Jones: Head of People Strategy – J Tomlinson

"Actons have worked with Leicester College on employment matters for a number of years. They have a good understanding of our needs as an employer, the work we do and the environment within which we operate. The advice they provide is unfailingly prompt, practical and clear about the actions we need to take and the potential risks for the College. When needed Actons have successfully and effectively represented the College in dealing with Employment Tribunal and other claims."
