Employment
Employment law advice needs to be concise, timely and of course, practical. Our lawyers pride themselves on delivering this with the highest quality and in a way that is always ‘off the fence’.

We have wide expertise in the media and entertainment sector but are equally at home with clients from other industries, including, charities, recruitment, finance, professional services and SMEs.  We also regularly advise high net worth individuals in their capacity as employers and senior executives in their individual capacity.

Our clients are extremely busy people. Our approach is to have a deep understanding of their businesses and the environment where they work and to be their trusted advisers.  Through this approach and because of the level of our advice, we can enhance their working lives considerably.
