Employment

We provide expert advice in this complex area, ensuring that we are always available to deal with problems that arise and situations that may change rapidly.

Our employer clients include both public and private sector organisations.  We offer them guidance through the maze of rules and regulations relating to their workforce.  We also provide bespoke manager training in areas such as implementation of policies and the effective handling of disciplinary and grievance issues.

Our employee clients include individuals at all levels within organisations including senior executives of listed companies.  We are happy to be instructed at short notice.

We advise on non-contentious matters such as contracts of employment and employment policies, the application of TUPE and redundancy and restructuring.  We act for clients in contentious areas such as employment tribunal claims including unfair dismissal, discrimination and breach of contract.

We deal with the contentious and non-contentious aspects of senior executive terminations and compromise agreements and the drafting, interpretation and enforcement of restrictive covenants.  We also handle a range of general employment matters including advice on data protection, disciplinary issues, grievances and dismissals.

In the Chambers & Partners 2014 directory, the Employment Team is listed as a leading firm in Bristol, noted for its advice to SMEs on redundancies and tribunal hearings and that it has added a number of schools and health practices to its roster in recent times. Clients say "They respond in a timely manner with advice we trust and use" and "Their strength is the level at which they speak to you – they can relate to business in the real world."

We have relied on Gregg Latchams for over 18 years now, which in a way speaks for itself. We particularly value their expertise in dealing with contracts and employment matters. Their lawyers have a positive attitude and we know that we can call them at any time and get a well thought out, practical view. Lastly cost effectiveness is crucial for any business and I always think we get excellent value for money.
