Our national employment law team specialises in advising employers in their specific context. Whether designing bespoke employment contracts and policies for your workforce, supporting you to achieve a smooth staffing restructure, advising on the recruitment of migrant workers or defending a complex discrimination claim at the employment tribunal, our team of proactive sector-experienced lawyers can support you. We deliver commercial advice that is focused on supporting you through the process to achieve your desired goal.
