Clough & Willis Solicitors, Commercial and private legal services UK

Employer's Advantage - Employment Law Advisory Service for HR Professionals

Employment legislation is constantly changing with the continual introduction of new employment laws from the UK government and European Union and the ever increasing volume and complexity of case law.

I have extensive legal expertise and previous experience as the in-house lawyer for a national retailer enables me to have the correct insight to support HR professionals across all aspects of employment law.

We will be on hand to provide up-to-date, accurate legal advice on employment law:

  • preventing you making the wrong decision 
  • preventing you giving incorrect advice to the management board
  • helping minimise your legal costs
  • helping reduce potential liability 
  • helping reduce possible detrimental publicity

We have extensive experience of the Employment Tribunals.  We can ensure you know how employment laws are interpreted in practice.

Unlike many HR consultancies, we provide legal representation at a discounted rate in the Employment Tribunals as part of Employers Advantage.  We can also advise and represent you in the County Court and High Court on matters of high value contract disputes and injunctions relating to restrictive covenants.

Our service will encompass:-

  • Assisting you in drafting, reviewing and amending contracts of employment, service agreements, employee handbooks and your HR policies/procedures
  • Assisting you in drafting or advising on the review and amendment of documentation to support HR procedures
  • Telephone/email advice line in respect of employment issues during normal business hours
  • Unlike other insurance backed services I can attend on-site, as your legal advisor for disciplinary/grievance/consultation meetings
  • Invitations to Employment Law and HR related seminars
  • Regular updates on employment law issues
  • Discounted representation in the Employment Tribunal

We have designed Employers Advantage to assist HR professionals reduce their businesses exposure to Employment Tribunal claims and to ensure they are in the best position to defend any claim.

For more information on how we can help your organisation manage the risk associated with employment law, or if you have a problem and would like some preliminary information or to arrange a free initial consultation, please contact me  Amy Ross-Sercombe, on freephone 0800 083 0815 or by email


We have been using Clough & Willis for ten years and found them to be very efficient in all aspects of their work. What I like about their firm is that they cover a wide variety of legal services and are very quick to respond to our needs.

From first contact to the last, everyone has been very professional and reassuring through what has been an emotional and stressful time for us and without the help of your company it would have been much more difficult for me and my husband.

Lorraine, I would just like to say "thank you very much" for all your hard work and assistance in the letting of the above property. The negotiations were somewhat protracted, due to a breakdown on my client's side, and I feel that your persistence and hard work led to the eventual lease completion. I look forward to working with you in the near future. Kind regards, Neil Higson, for and on behalf of Nolan Redshaw Ltd
