How can we help?

Swift advice to solve your employment issue
From providing solutions to some of the toughest, most sensitive, and complex employment related issues, to providing general HR advice and guidance, we can help. No matter what the issue or complexity, we provide clear and pragmatic advice and solutions that work.
Legal advice based on your specific needs
Everyone is different, and we will only provide advice once we fully understand your particular circumstances. Only then will we explain the options, the potential outcomes and advise you on what is the best way forward.
Litigation strength
Our employment lawyers have a particular strength in representing clients in employment tribunals and in other courts. While we will always seek to resolve any dispute amicably, we are ready to fight on behalf of our clients to ensure we get the right outcome for them.

Plain English ... no jargon
Plain English ... no jargon
Law is complex; we remove the complexity and provide expert advice in plain English.

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.

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 everyone is different, we offer a range of different pricing modules, ranging from our ‘open’ hourly rate service, through to a fixed rate. We are also able to offer you an initial 30-minute consultation during which we will explore your case and give you an early indication of the options available to you.


We can undertake work for you on a pre-agreed fixed-fee basis, giving you cost certainty at the outset.

No fixed fee, you use us when you need us. The hourly rate depends on the level of experience of solicitor that you need.
