Employment is all about relationships.

We work closely with our employer clients to build strong relationships with you. Our service is bespoke and personal. We get to know you, your business and industry so that we understand the issues that directly impact you and can provide proactive and cost saving advice.

We advise a growing core client base across sectors and industries. Our clients are the business owners and directors, HR teams and consultants of SMEs, national and international businesses. The Firm’s location means we have a strong geographical reach, acting for clients locally in Beds, Herts and Bucks, London and beyond.

Clients benefit from advice provided at a Partner or senior associate level from highly experienced lawyers and litigators from local and City firms, but without the associated costs.
