Solutions and future prevention
Solutions and future prevention
Not only do we work with you to solve your current issue, but we always look to identify the cause of the problem to help your business avoid similar issues in the future.

Why use our employment team?

Once we fully understand your particular circumstances, we will make sure that we work closely with you, offering practical advice and guidance that is far more than just giving you a narrow legal view. We will explain the options, the potential outcomes and what we believe is the best way forward. Ultimately, it will be your decision, but we will guide you through everything and make sure that any final decision is only made once you are fully aware of all your options.

We also believe that the sooner we are brought into a potential issue, the better the outcome will be and the old adage of it never being too early to call your solicitor is never truer when it comes to employment law matters. What may start life as a simple disagreement can quickly escalate if it is not dealt with promptly and in the correct manner. We are regularly called to provide our clients with advice and guidance at an early stage to minimise the risk and help resolve the matter quickly and amicably if at all possible.

We offer:

  • An experienced employment team that always seeks to understand your needs and will go that extra mile.
  • Personalised advice and support tailored to your own specific needs.
  • Dedicated, named solicitor, that you know and trust, and who is supported by a wider team.
  • Straightforward advice with the jargon removed, giving you clarity and peace of mind at all times.
  • A team with an enviable track record of winning claims in the Employment Tribunal.
  • A range of pricing options to fit your business.

Litigation strength

Our team of employment lawyers has a particular strength in representing clients in Employment Tribunals throughout Scotland, with our employment law solicitors having a strong background in litigation representation. Our solicitors regularly appear personally in the Scottish Employment Tribunals and have a high success rate in achieving positive outcomes for our clients. This means we are able to give you a complete service, with you able to deal with the same person throughout, even if your case goes to the Tribunal.

Our service options

As we recognise that no two businesses are the same, we offer a range of different pricing modules, ranging from our hourly rate service, through to our ‘blended offer, which combines both a fixed and hourly rate pricing service.


We can undertake work for you on a pre-agreed fixed-fee basis, giving you cost certainty at the outset.
Get in touch
No fixed fee, you use us when you need us. The hourly rate depends on the level of experience of solicitor that you need.
Get in touch
This is our retained service, which gives you the certainty of a fixed monthly fee under a retainer agreement and the benefit of a reduced hourly rate should you need it.
