Employment Law

Our Employment Unit is one of the largest and most experienced in Scotland but acts for clients across the United Kingdom and beyond. We understand that businesses of all shapes and sizes need to have clear and pragmatic employment law advice, and our experienced team of employment law specialists can help.

How our employment law experts can help

If you’re a small business managing your own staff, a large business with a HR Department, or a multi-national company, we have the expertise and experience to help you. If you need support in negotiating a settlement, defending an Employment Tribunal claim, assistance with a restructuring or redundancy process, drafting employment contracts or policies, pensions advice, immigration queries or advice on the application of TUPE, we’re here to help. We have the people, the skills and the knowledge to assist you as your business adapts and changes.
