You don’t need us to tell you that employment law can be a minefield.

A single mistake can cost a business dearly – both financially and reputationally. That’s why it's important to choose an experienced law firm that invests in getting to know your business inside out.

Getting us involved at an early stage can make a real difference, allowing us to manage issues before they become big problems. But if issues do become problems, we have years of experience advising in the most complex and challenging employment disputes.

Described in Legal 500 UK as providing “a first-class service in every respect,” our clients tell us they consider us an extension of their team and value our ability to provide strategic employment solutions that balance commercial and legal issues. We will work alongside you and your teams to help upskill and develop internal capabilities.

We’d love to talk about all the work that we do, but much of the work our clients trust us with is commercially sensitive or confidential. We are trusted by our clients to manage and resolve issues that are frequently time-critical - balancing legal, financial, reputational and emotional considerations.

Whether you are looking for help reviewing contracts, policies and procedures, managing change, or need immediate advice on litigation and employment issues, we’re here to support you.

The Employment Team continue to be the most personable and supportive in the North East. They will always strive to provide individual support which is objective yet understanding, demonstrating an exceptional level of expertise in their field. 

Building strong networks with local organisations and facilitating a variety of forums to help engage and share updated information relative to employment law I feel is one of their unique strengths which has helped them establish the strong and credible reputation they hold.
