Employment Litigation: Seeing it through to the end

At a glance

Where there’s a dispute between employer and employee, we will try to resolve it through negotiation and mediation if that is in our clients’ best interest. Should that not be possible or what you want, we’ll form a litigation strategy with you and conduct the process through the tribunal or court to achieve the best result.

    Typically the dispute may be about wrongful or unfair dismissal, breach of contract or covenant, discrimination, whistleblowing bonus or commission claims or redundancy. We’re known for maintaining high standards, with particular expertise in restrictive covenant disputes – both enforcing them, and defending against injunction applications.

    Your case may be complex, possibly with multiple claims. It might concern a key individual or an entire team. It may also involve us representing you in court. We’ll direct and support you at every stage, keeping you fully informed throughout, and pushing hard for the outcome you want.
