Employment Law for Individuals

Employment law and remuneration packages are under public and legal scrutiny as never before. When it comes to protecting an individual's position within an organisation, and maximising their earning potential, you can rely on our employment solicitors to provide practical solutions.

We use our in-depth knowledge to help employees at all levels resolve any difficulties they might encounter in the workplace. Our team has a detailed understanding of the challenges faced by senior executives and entrepreneurs and a vast level of experience in dealing with directors, partners, NEDs, finance, legal and HR personnel over a wide range of industries.

At Penningtons Manches Cooper we advise individuals, including management teams and boards of directors, on the negotiation and drafting of contracts of employment, service agreements, LLPs and consultancy agreements. Whether you're a full or part-time employee, or a self-employed contractor, we are able to guide you on issues ranging from parental leave and discrimination to long term incentive plans and bonus arrangements.

While we are experienced litigators and frequently represent clients in courts and tribunals, we also provide specialist help in resolving conflict through alternative dispute resolution.

Our team of employment lawyers also acts for businesses.
