Whether at the outset of obtaining a new job, during employment itself or when leaving a role, individuals may find themselves in need of specialist advice to navigate the complex field of employment law and to understand their rights as an employee. Hewitsons' Employment lawyers advise individuals at each of these stages and provide the specialist support needed.
We provide advice to individuals, including senior managers, executives and directors, on negotiating contracts of employment, service agreements and consultancy agreements. We are also able to advise individuals on their rights during their employment, whether it be in respect of family friendly issues, grievances, discrimination issues, during a restructuring exercise or issues faced by an individual if they are placed in a disciplinary situation.
Our Employment lawyers also regularly advise individuals on Settlement Agreements when an employer and an individual are seeking to come to an agreement for the employment to come to an end. This includes advising individuals on the terms and effect of the agreement, and negotiating on behalf of the individuals the package which has been offered to them by their employer.
"Valerie was absolutely fantastic in her legal strategy & planning & response times with opposing counsel which was the Chairman of the other firm. When this Chairman was not responsive on many occasions - Valerie kept her cool and responded back in an extremely cool & logical manner. I could not have asked for better counsel in my situation as she reacted extremely well in my case against an opposing legal entity that represented a very large Italian EPC company. This case was settled quickly and amicably by her"
