We’re also used to working in delicate and difficult situations: sometimes your relationship with your employer can deteriorate to the point where legal action seems your only option. However, as experienced solicitors, we’re often able to negotiate an settlement on your behalf which avoids legal proceedings and provides you with an effective and beneficial exit strategy.
We can give you advice on many different aspects of employment law. Whether you’re being bullied or discriminated against at work, subject to disciplinary proceedings or raising a grievance, we can help find the solution that’s right for you. This could be helping you to stay with your employer or agreeing a settlement that allows you to leave on good terms.
We can help you at every stage: ranging from simply reviewing and guiding you through the process, right through to mounting a robust defence on your behalf. We will always defend you as robustly as possible and rebuff the allegations using all our expertise.
