Our Employment and HR team deals with all areas of employment law, from the beginning of the employment relationship through to conducting cases at employment tribunals.

Our team works on behalf of businesses as well as employees in both contentious and non-contentious matters. Described as "very attentive and client-oriented" (Chambers), we build strong relationships with our clients and we make sure that we are accessible to them by providing our direct contact details and by delivering reliable response times.

The team is headed by partner Fflur Jones, who is highly regarded for her extensive knowledge of the law and her "authoritative, measured and well-balanced" advice (Chambers). Our Human Resources consultants work alongside our team of employment lawyers, resulting in a seamless and integrated approach.

We provide training and seminars to clients and HR professionals on employment law and HR practices, and policies and procedures to ensure your staff are up to date with the latest policy changes. We also offer bespoke and in-house training to suit you and your business needs.
