We are widely acknowledged as one of the Thames Valley’s leading firms of Employment law solicitors, with conveniently located offices in Reading, Henley-on-Thames and London.


Listening carefully to our clients’ needs and aims, we are committed to providing clear, practical, commercially focused and effective legal advice, a responsive and highly personal service and, crucially, value for money.


Having advised organisations, their management teams and owners in relation to Employment law for many decades, you can trust in our significant expertise and experience.
