Most people encounter a problem or two at some point in their career. Knowing how to handle a difficult situation can make all the difference to its outcome.
Our team is that layer of support that employees can call on. Whether we are quietly advising in the background, or are taking control of an issue that has escalated, we’re relied on for our clear thinking, our calm approach and our pragmatic advice.
Workplace issues don’t always lead to litigation. Although each of our employment lawyers is experienced in representing clients in tribunals across England and Wales, we also have a great track record in resolving problems before they get that far. We’ll quickly get to grips with the issue you are facing and will talk you through your options for sorting it out. It could be through correspondence or negotiation with your employer, or through alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation; there are effective ways and means of getting you out of the situation you are in, on the best terms.
We recognise that a problem at work can become a problem at home and in other aspects of your life. That’s why we work quickly and strategically to stop the ripple effect and to preserve, wherever possible and necessary, your relationship with your employer and colleagues.
