    "They've been amazing. Everything is so easy. I have a question, I can make a phone call or send an email and it doesn't matter when I do this, I'm always going to get a prompt response. It's taken away some of the worry actually from trying to ensure that I always get it right."

  • Philip Richardson - Head of Employment Law

    "Right from the outset, we'll go and visit a client at their premises to understand the client's needs and what we'll focus upon is undertaking a full audit of the company's HR and employment products. So for instance, we will draft any documentation or take them through a disciplinary or grievance procedure for instance."
