The key to dealing efficiently and effectively with such queries is an in-depth knowledge of each client: this enables us to provide swift, concise and practical advice. Speed of response is essential and an "instant" answer is often needed - as a team of employment law specialists, we effectively provide what amounts to a "help-line" service.

We also give tailored advice and practical guidance on specific projects. This is in clear English, avoiding jargon and recommending a course of action whilst flagging any risks/consequences. We also assist our clients in developing their HR strategy and policy. Employment law changes faster than many other areas of law. There is a constant stream of new rules and regulations; some are relevant, others can be ignored. We aim to keep our clients up to date with recent developments and to highlight those which are important for their businesses and to advise them on areas which may need revising or where problems may arise.

"According to clients: 'They do not simply cast you adrift with a range of theoretical alternatives: they really advise'; and they are 'a great team of talented individuals whose knowledge is first-rate and who always provide an excellent customer-focused service'."
