Employment Law Solicitors for Employees

One of the leading firms of Employment law solicitors in Reading, Henley-on-Thames and the wider Thames Valley, we advise employees on all aspects of Employment law. Our specialist expertise and experience is acknowledged in the UK’s leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500.

Our Employment law solicitors can discuss and help to assess your workplace situation and provide clear and practical advice on a way forward which will achieve the best outcome for you.

From advising on a workplace issue or a dispute with your employer, through to redundancy and negotiating the best possible settlement agreement, our team of specialist Employment law solicitors can help.

Unlike many firms of solicitors, we also routinely represent our clients at Employment Tribunals, working closely with barristers when required. Experience has shown that end to end conduct of an employment dispute results in a more favourable result.

We are experienced in advising clients including employees, senior executives, directors and managers, consultants and contractors, business owners and shareholders, board members, trustees and governors on all aspects of Employment law.   

We are committed to ensuring that we offer value for money and we will always examine available funding options with you, including the possibility that you may have legal expenses insurance as part of an existing policy. We also understand that it is not always easy to meet with an Employment law solicitor during normal working hours and aim to offer a flexible and approachable service to suit your needs.

While a significant part of our work has always involved acting for employees, we also advise employers, resulting in a crucial, and often time and cost saving understanding of matters from both sides. We regularly come up against national or city firms on the 'other side' but the depth and diversity of our expertise and experience means there are very few situations that we have not seen before and we are able to secure successful outcomes for our clients.

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