How can we help?

Business Employment

Disciplinary & grievance


Working relationships are often key to the success of a business, and our employment lawyers understand that where issues arise, they need to be dealt with fairly, swiftly and with as little disruption as possible. 

We offer commercial and practical advice on handling poor performance and conduct issues through disciplinary action, as well as responding to employee grievances, to minimize the risk of Tribunal claims whilst maintaining good industrial/employee relations wherever possible. 


We can support you with negotiating the exits of both junior and senior employees, with guidance on negotiating exit terms and drafting your settlement agreements. We advise on tricky issues such as notice pay, garden leave, restrictive covenants, share schemes, pension contributions and other employee benefits. We can also help you prepare for and undertake protected conservations to ensure the best outcome for the business.


Underperforming employees can have a detrimental impact on your business’ reputation, performance and staff morale. We can advise you on all aspects of handling performance issues, including performance improvement plans, drafting capability policies, taking disciplinary action, disability discrimination risks and without prejudice negotiations.

An exceptional balance of expertise and personality.”
