Wall James Chappell for Business

Company & Commercial

Commercial Property


Employment law is one of the most complex and fast-changing areas of law, with a constant flow of legislation and case law impacting on every business and worker.

Our Employment Law team has many years’ experience in providing practical and commercial advice, support and representation to both employers and individuals, tailored to meet their individual needs.

At the outset of any case we establish our client’s aims and objectives and agree a strategy to which those objectives are central. We offer total cost transparency at every stage of a case.

We provide non-contentious advice across a diverse range of areas such as drawing up new employment contracts, handling disciplinary or grievance issues, dealing with redundancies and restructuring.  We carry out audits of employment contracts, internal policies and procedures to ensure compliance with the complex employment law landscape, minimising any unwanted exposure or risk of claims.  It is better and much more cost-effective to get things right to start with than put things right afterwards.

When disputes do arise, we can help you deal with them quickly and confidently.  We see the employment tribunal or the court as a last resort and always try to resolve matters by conciliation, mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

Where employment tribunal or court proceedings are unavoidable, our clients benefit from our clear and decisive advice, our cost-effective operation and our tenacity in securing the right outcome. In the case of employers, commercial objectives such as maintaining business reputation and workforce relations are at the centre of our strategy.
