Employer / HR
When it comes to employment law, we believe prevention is better than cure. Your people are your most valuable asset, but managing them can be time-consuming, complicated and distracting and the ever-changing legal landscape can be difficult to keep on top of. Regulation of the workplace has never been greater and getting it wrong can be costly.
Our service covers all areas of employment law, ranging from advice on business re-organisations to Employment Appeals Tribunal advocacy for employers operating in various business sectors. Maeve O’Connor leads our employment practice.
We provide a highly responsive, practical and commercial service and are committed to offering bespoke services. By working closely with you, we are able to help your management deal quickly with difficult employment issues that may arise at any time.
We act for both employers and employees. We believe that understanding what ‘the other side’ is likely to be thinking helps us to help you.
Importantly, we enable our clients to establish a structure for dealing in a cost effective manner with employment matters that affect all businesses in a changing world.
