His work covers all aspects of employment law from relatively uncomplicated wages claims to extremely complicated TUPE and discrimination cases lasting a number of days at the Tribunal.

He understands that all businesses have different employee issues and tailors the service depending on the business requirements, whether its more complex employment law support for HR Directors and senior HR staff, or whether it is guidance on making sure HR systems and processes are in place and compliant for smaller businesses, guiding a employers through disciplinary and grievance procedures and even sitting in to ensure the correct processes are followed, dealing with sickness and absence to help protect the companies best interests.

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
