What our clients say...
"I am very satisfied with the employment law service I was provided with. Rebecca and Emily were professional, efficient and responsive, and were always on hand to answer my questions throughout the process. I would highly recommend them."
Tribunal claim client
"I recently sought advice from Rebecca Jorgenson, Head of Employment, on a complicated employment matter and her expertise, knowledge and ability to advise and respond clearly (especially on matters of law) were invaluable. I felt completely confident in Rebecca’s approach and she was fundamental in reaching a quick and acceptable resolution. I was more than satisfied with my service from Rebecca and her team and could not recommend them highly enough."
Employment - private client
"You’ve all be incredibly professional, diligent and easy to work with. The feedback tables provided after meeting each client were really useful for ensuring we kept on top of queries/amendments. I believe our staff really valued your advice and I’ve had very positive feedback about the telephone appointments as well as the face to face ones. Having Alex as a point of contact has also been brilliant as its enabled us to respond quickly and efficiently both ways. You were very patient and flexible when it came to people changing/cancelling appointments and with the sheer number you dealt with, this was a huge help."
