Advice and representation for individuals
Our job is not simply about knowing the law - it is also about using our experience to resolve your challenging employment law issues. Our advice and representation is tailored to your seniority and specialist industry.
How we help employees and partners in high value and high stakes negotiations and disputes
We deploy our leading reputation, high success rate in litigation and expertise to make important judgment calls at the right time, and to give you the fire power that can transform a difficult legal and personal situation into something truly positive ideally by negotiation, but, if required, by litigation.
We typically act for bankers, investment and insurance professionals and others employed in the financial services industry; C-suite executives in industry; and for professionals working in law, medicine, and consulting. Our opponents in recent years include Barclays, Goldman Sachs, Standard Chartered, UBS and Credit Suisse together with a number of the major hedge funds and asset managers, private equity firms, FTSE 100 companies, large US technology firms, major law and consulting partnerships and the NHS. Our aim is to get the best outcome for you to enable you to move on successfully with your career.
We are experienced and adept at dealing with tough adversaries. Our clients’ employers have the resources to instruct top solicitors, often from Magic Circle firms. We have a well-deserved reputation for taking on (and beating) some of the world’s most prestigious and powerful companies; such is our commitment to achieving our clients’ objectives. You can read more about our client successes here.
Our solicitors have particular expertise in representing employees from the financial services, insurance, medical, and technology sectors, as well as senior staff of multi-national corporates. Our commercial acumen, coupled with in-depth knowledge of the challenges our clients are up against due to the seniority of their role, and the culture and regulations that govern them allows us to achieve successful outcomes in the majority of cases.
All of our employment lawyers are robust negotiators, and they have experience of obtaining the best deals for clients in receipt of settlement agreements or facing disputes regarding their remuneration packages including deferred compensation and bonus. For the sake of our clients, we believe in working towards a settlement, keeping matters outside of the Employment Tribunal or High Court and therefore away from the media. However, after exploring all reasonable alternatives with you, if litigation proves inevitable, our fearless, creative and reputed employment litigators will put you in the strongest possible position to launch and win your claim.
Despite our success, we choose to remain a small firm with quality lawyers, dedicated to our clients, with whom we partner to get the best results. By instructing us, you can be confident that you will not be treated as another ‘fee’, but rather, you will receive a smart, engaged, responsive service, and a solid commitment to protecting your career and professional reputation.
