Recent changes in UK employment law leave employers and employees alike in need of timely legal advice on the practical implications of new legislation and other developments.
As one of the largest and most experienced employment groups in the North of England, Watson Burton can offer you a team who can provide speedy and strategic advice, outstanding legal support and reduce potential risks to your business.
If litigation is required, Watson Burton is particularly strong on in-house advocacy, through which the employment team provides a seamless transition for the client from case preparation to hearing with a single contact.
Rising costs of non-compliance mean that effective guidance and planning is now essential for anyone involved in employment and human resources. Our authoritative advice, clear reasoning and practical solutions have gained praise from clients throughout the UK and national legal directories.
For all clients we provide targeted client-centred support at our Newcastle, Leeds and London offices with experts in UK and European employment law who are often seen as part of a client’s own human resources team.
