Business Employment Law – Doswell Law

Doswell Law specialises exclusively in business employment law. We do not advise in any other area of law, which allows us to remain up to date with the constant changes made in this area of law. We aim to provide you with clear, jargon-free legal advice and solutions to help achieve a successful outcome to your employment issues as quickly and as cost effectively as possible. We act for businesses of all sizes from large law firms to start-up tech companies but our approach to helping you is the same, which is a firm commitment to achieve the very best outcome, whatever the circumstances.

Our main focus is on protecting our clients from expensive and time-consuming claims and disputes. So whether you need help with managing a poorly performing employee, handling a disciplinary, dismissal or grievance process or undertaking a redundancy or restructuring programme we can provide you with effective advice tailored to meet your particular business needs. We can advise you on any day-to-day law and HR issues to ensure that you obtain advice and support when you need it. Or if you do face an employment tribunal claim we have an excellent track record in defending businesses at employment tribunals. With each new case we add to our deep understanding of the tactics needed to get the very best result for your business.

Annual Employment Retainer

Doswell Law’s annual employment retainer is designed to provide businesses with a cost-effective solution for obtaining day-to-day advice and support on any employment law or HR issue. Obtaining early advice on an employment or HR issue can often prevent an employment dispute arising together with the associated costs of dealing with a complex grievance or employment tribunal claim.

The key benefits of the retainer scheme are:

  • A free audit of your existing employment documents including any employment contracts and staff handbook.
  • Telephone and written advice including drafting letters and documents in connection with any employment law issue.
  • Priority attention over non-retainer clients to ensure your objectives are quickly achieved.
  • A preferential hourly rate based on the number of hours of advice to be given under the retainer.

The annual employment/HR retainer is subject to Doswell Law’s standard terms and conditions of business.
