Looking for expert legal advice?

Specialist Employment Law Solicitors and Legal Advice in Reading & Henley-on-Thames

We recognise that, as an employee, a workplace related issue can be challenging, in a number of ways. At an initial meeting, in person or remotely, a solicitor in our dedicated Employment Law team will listen and help to assess your situation, advise on the strength of your case and discuss your options, to help achieve the best outcome for you.

Advising on areas including employment contracts and your rights as an employee, making a claim against your employer, whistleblowing, TUPE & transferring your employment, redundancy and negotiating a settlement agreement, we will provide you with clear and effective legal advice, an understanding and supportive service and, crucially, value for money.

Our clients range from board level executives and senior directors/managers through to more junior employees, as well as those on part-time or zero-hours contracts.

Experienced Employment Law solicitors

While a significant part of our work has always involved acting for employees, we also advise employers of all sizes, 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 have an excellent track record of securing successful outcomes for our clients.

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 typically results in a more favourable result.

We are members of the Employment Lawyers Association and recognised as a top tier firm of Employment Law solicitors in the UK’s leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500. Our successful approach is also reflected in the excellent client feedback we continue to receive.

Funding your case and a flexible service

We will always examine all available funding options with you, including the possibility that you may have legal expenses insurance as part of an existing policy. Our solicitors will always provide clear and up to date information on the anticipated timescales and costs and help to carefully manage both aspects on your behalf. 

Our offices in Reading and Henley-on-Thames are conveniently located but we understand that it is not always easy to meet with an Employment Law solicitor during normal working hours so offer a flexible approach to suit your needs. We are also experienced in working with our clients remotely and adept at dealing with matters in this way, meaning that you can expect the same expert legal advice and excellent client care on which our leading reputation is based, wherever you are located and however you decide to work with us.
