Would you like to learn more about the legal advice services we offer to our business clients?

Our employment legal advice services explain how we can help you with HR matters. Our commercial law advice services explain how we can help you with contract and commercial matters.
We also offer monthly or annual memberships to provide businesses with the equivalent of an in-house legal department.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are some questions that get asked time and time again by employers and businesses. when considering using solicitors. That’s where our employment law and commercial law FAQs come in to assist you.

If you find that you’re still searching for an answer, we are ready and waiting to hear from you. Please either check out our employment law and commercial law services or contact us directly by telephone, email or our contact form.

Sometimes you’re after a quick answer rather than spending hours researching the question yourself. By using a solicitor, you have access to the equivalent on an in-house legal department who can advise you on all areas of employment law (and commercial law). Furthermore, you are going directly to the people you need. There are a number of HR and legal support services out there who are not legally qualified, but provide ‘legal’ advice. Even they end up coming to us to check what they are advising is correct. You can pass the middle person and instruct us directly. Importantly to protect your business, by using a solicitor, you benefit from Legal Professional Privilege (LPP) on all correspondence and communication between you and your professional. LPP only applies to advice from legally qualified lawyers (i.e. solicitors and barristers) and means the advice we give you is not disclosable to an employee or in legal proceedings. You are using an expert in the law who has spent years of training and has years of experience of putting it into practice (and standing before judges to know how the courts and tribunals apply the law in practice).

We provide a range of services to suit your budget, ranging from hourly rates (£250 plus VAT) to fixed fee or retainer services. Our retainer services price varies subject to the size of the business/number of employees. We also offer discounts on referral services for our retainer. Our retainer services include telephone and email advice, newsletters with updates in the law, discounts on fees, contract/handbook reviews*, settlement agreement assistance* and in-house seminars* to name some of the benefits (* subject to retainer package taken). Please see our Annual Membership for more information or Contact us for further details.

We expect whatever it is you have visited our webpage for, we can assist with if it covers employment law or commercial law (such as contracts, shareholders agreements, directors queries, terms of service) matters. With our employment law services, in a nutshell, if you require HR services, we can accommodate it. This ranges from day to day employment matters such as disciplinaries, grievances, and sickness absence to more complex issues such as TUPE transfers, data protection and redundancies. We also cover a range of commercial and corporate services from reviewing terms of business to debt chasing and collection services, and advising on Director and Partnership matters. Plus if you do not see it listed, contact us as it is likely we can accommodate you; there is only so much that can be written on a webpage.

Settlement agreements (which used to be called Compromise Agreements) can be offered by either the employer, or the employee can ask for one.  It is a contract which usually gives a financial package in exchange for the employee to leave their employment and not pursue any grievance, subject access request, or claim against their employer.  When being given a settlement agreement (the actual full terms), employees should be given 10 calendar days to make their decision on it (accept it, reject it or start to negotiate on the terms).

If you want assistance with sending a letter to your employee, can provide this service for a fixed fee or as part of our retainer membership packages.
