Employment Law for Businesses?height=270

Latest news & insights:

Our employment law team provides fast, proactive and practical legal support. Approachable and commercially aware, our specialists have in-depth experience of the issues faced by businesses when managing their staff.

We keep clients up to date with the raft of new employment law regulations, highlighting how these could impact on their overall strategy and safeguarding against the potentially huge costs of non-compliance.

Penningtons Manches Cooper's approach is simple – rather than give dire warnings about legal rights and responsibilities, we look at the reality of a situation and suggest the best solution. We take time to understand the challenges faced by businesses in an uncertain market.

Our employment solicitors cover the whole spectrum of employment law issues, including contentious and non contentious matters. We advise major companies through to smaller private and owner-managed businesses in a wide variety of sectors, including financial services, healthcare, recruitment, publishing, media, IT, hotels and leisure, manufacturing, retail and professional services. We also act for public companies, academic institutions and other not-for profit organisations.

Although we are experienced litigators, and frequently represent organisations at employment tribunals and in court, we also offer specialist employment law advice in resolving conflict through alternative dispute resolution. Our package of services to ensure optimum management of human resources includes ongoing support through in-house training, seminars, workshops, newsletters and e-bulletins.

We offer expert advice on:
