We ensure that you are able to focus on your business by helping you deal with any employment issues that arise. We also minimise your exposure to Employment Tribunal claims.

We have a highly rated employment law team with an excellent reputation.  We have more Law Society of Scotland accredited employment law specialists than any other team in Scotland.

Clear advice

Our employment lawyers are straight talking and will provide clear, pragmatic advice. You can expect us to be pro-active and accessible providing swift, expert advice as an employment issue unfolds.

Our approach to fees

As well as providing clear advice we guarantee that we will be transparent on costs.

We understand the importance of providing fee clarity and value for money. We offer fixed fee packages for a variety of different areas of work from drafting or reviewing contracts of employment or policy documentation to defending Employment Tribunal claims. We also offer fixed fee retainer packages including our insurance backed employment protection package. If it is not possible to provide a fixed fee then we will provide a clear indication of the likely fee based on an agreed scope of work.
