Employers, more than ever before, need sound and clear employment law advice to help them to protect their employees when things are going well and to protect themselves when relations break down.
When grievances and disputes with staff happen they take priority, regardless of the distraction this may cause you, and, if you don’t handle them correctly, there’s a real risk that you will end up in the Employment Tribunal.
Our specialist solicitors act for businesses large and small in Suffolk, Essex and further afield and can guide you to where you need to be with a minimum of fuss and expense. Clients who have our Employment Team behind them almost never find themselves at the wrong end of a Tribunal claim. We are proactive as well as reactive and are renowned for our training and seminars.
The Legal 500 which is recognised globally as the definitive guide for those seeking expert legal advice identify the team as ‘a strong presence in the local market and frequently acts for corporate clients’.
Quotes from the publication include:
‘The most outstanding and refreshing thing about working with Gotelee is the strength of the relationships that you form with them. They are very human- which is (in my experience) rare across the board in legal firms. Everyone is so willing to help and they seem to have a culture where they thrive on helping their customers. They work quickly, respond quickly and their knowledge is great. I found it refreshing that they listen to my needs and don’t just come up with a blanket standard solution.’
‘My company is a bit unusual and our approach isn’t very traditional, and Gotelee have helped us in the tone we want, not in some stiff legal style.’
‘I have worked with multiple people at Gotelee over the last five years and every single person has been kind, fun, knowledgeable and responsive. I feel listened to, cared for and I feel like a unique client, not just a number or a job. I have had especially good interactions with Andrew West and Marie Allen and both have left me feeling hopeful, energised and confident that every detail was thought through. I honestly cannot fault anyone- the best service I have ever had from legal professionals.’
‘The firm is a traditional business with care for its clients needs. Access to the advice on the HR retainer has always been timely and responsive. The employment team understands the needs of a business at our size that also has the family element which fits with our values.’
‘Access to Andrew West has always been brilliant. He is responsive, pragmatic and the business trusts the advice he gives. He gives no nonsense approach with measured risk for each situation and talks in a language we all understand at every level. He is my go to for all HR advice and would always recommend him to any business needing employment law or HR support.’
