Business Employment Law


Welcome to our Business Employment Law Department.  We aim to provide cost effective advice to employers tailored to suit your business needs.

We know that efficiency is key to a profitable business. Employment law issues can be distracting.  We aim to find practical cost effective solutions so that you can remain focussed on what is important.

Employment law is a fast moving and ever changing area of law.  We can help ensure that your business remains up to date by reviewing and drafting employment policies and contracts.  From time to time, businesses need to reorganise and restructure.  We can advise how your business can achieve its aims within the current legal framework.

It is not easy managing employees and it is inevitable that at some point your business will find itself dealing with a dispute.  We can advise on the management of that dispute, and if needed, draft Settlement Agreements, and defend you at an Employment Tribunal.

The firm is one of the largest practices in the Medway Towns and North Kent, servicing clients across Kent, the South East and London.

We can help you with:

  • Drafting of employment contracts, service agreements and HR policies
  • Managing disciplinaries and grievances
  • Managing absenteeism
  • Performance management
  • Termination and settlement agreements
  • Redundancies and reorganisations
  • TUPE
  • Unfair dismissal
  • Discrimination and harassment
  • Equal pay

We offer a number of transparent funding options designed to help you control costs:

Initial Fixed Fee Meetings:  We are happy to discuss your employment law issue(s) for a fixed fee of £250+VAT.

Employment Tribunals:  We understand that many businesses fear legal costs.  We aim to be transparent from the outset and provide realistic estimates.  We are willing to discuss payment arrangements that suit your business.  Where appropriate we charge fixed fees so that you know precisely what our charges shall be from the start.  For guidance on how much an unfair dismissal/wrongful dismissal case may cost if it reaches a final hearing, please click here.
