Our approach is to build great relationships with clients. We aim to provide clear, practical, common sense advice in a friendly manner.
While all of our advisers are legally qualified, we operate on a consultancy basis, rather than as a firm of Solicitors. This allows us to keep our overheads low, which means our clients can benefit from advice from employment law specialists at very competitive rates. In addition, operating on a consultancy basis gives us more opportunities to collaborate with Solicitors’ firms and we are delighted to have an association with a number of Solicitors’ firms across Northern Ireland who refer their clients to us for employment law advice.
We advise a wide range of employer clients – from micro-businesses to much larger entities. We are also delighted to provide services to clients in the charity sector and Mark has a particular interest and specialism in advising churches and other faith-based organisations on their specific employment law requirements.
