Employment Law Solicitors for Employers

One of the leading firms of Employment law solicitors in Reading and the Thames Valley, we advise employers on all aspects of Employment law and at every stage of the employment relationship. Our specialist expertise is acknowledged in the UK’s leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500.

Our Employment law solicitors can provide expert advice on Employment and strategic HR issues to support your organisation’s continued growth and ensure that its interests are firmly protected.  

At the heart of every successful organisation are its people. Attracting, engaging and retaining the best employees and developing the right workplace culture, while remaining agile and managing risk, requires your organisation to have effective and legally compliant HR policies and practices in place.

Our Employment law solicitors are experienced in advising employers operating across a wide range of sectors, including UK subsidiaries of multinational companies, large SMEs and family or owner-managed businesses, partnerships and professional practices, public sector bodies, charities and not for profit organisations, schools and other education providers. 

We aim to work with and support our clients over the longer term and are commited to providing practical and commercially focused advice, supported by a hands-on and responsive approach, that is designed to achieve the best outcome for your organisation. 

Typically, we work with senior executives and managers and the relevant experts in their teams, whether that is in finance, legal, HR, operations or the commercial field. We also regularly provide briefings to boards of directors, trustees or governors as a whole, and training to managers or groups of employees.

Our comprehensive range of legal services allows our clients to manage all of their commercial needs, and where relevant their private interests, more efficiently and cost-effectively using a single law firm.

As members of the international Law Firm Network, we can also advise clients with overseas operations as well as those looking to do business in the UK.
