Employment Law

Employment Law is one of the most dynamically changing areas of law and the team at EMG Solicitors are able to offer outstanding employment legal advice to both employers and employees alike.

The relationships we have with our clients are very important – we build strong relationships where litigation is minimised and a culture of partnership is promoted but we also know that not all disputes can be resolved and when necessary you need an expert who ‘has your back’.   We advise on all aspects of employment law, like many other lawyers, but its the way we deliver our advice and the service we offer which sets us apart.

Our experience of acting for both employers and employees  gives us an additional perspective particularly when problems become disputes and disputes result in Employment Tribunal or Civil Court Proceedings. It also provides us with an ability to see tactical advantage as well as empathy when its needed.

Our commitment to providing swift accessible advice to our clients comes from the availability of our employment lawyers, their dedication to their clients and the advantage of dealing with a fully digital, agile law firm which enables us to respond and act quickly without interruption even in the most challenging of circumstances. This means no holding to wait for a claim handler, no online form filling, and direct access to your Solicitor.

It won’t have escaped your attention that EMG Solicitors are a firm with a caring side and we care passionately about our people. Providing a quality service is our number one aim and we achieve this by investing in, listening to and training our people and providing an inclusive culture where everyone can be themselves.

Whilst we know we’re a little different, we do this because we believe our clients want and deserve something a little bit more. Especially when it matters most.

We offer a no cost initial consultation and a guarantee that your enquiry will be dealt with quickly. We work closely with our colleagues in our Commercial Property Team too where businesses are being bought or sold with a workforce and also benefit from our own in house HR Team who are able to bring their own skills to bear in terms of people management and best practice.
