Employment and HR services for business

Lodders’ specialist employment team, headed by partner Nick Rowe, provides business owners and large corporations with technically precise and commercially focused guidance on all aspects of employment law, ranging from employment tribunal disputes to employee management and employment and HR support.

Employment law and HR support

Lodders’ employment solicitors offer accurate, no-nonsense HR and legal advice to a wide range of clients who require “hands on” assistance with the complexities of employment law.  We help our clients to manage important employment relationships by delivering practical, operational, and strategic advice with a focus on commercial solutions.

Our experience allows us to provide expert advice on the employment aspects of transactions, reorganisation, and redundancies having handled a large number of complicated reorganisations and multi-party transfer of undertakings (TUPE) cases.

Lodders’ employment solicitors have also acted regularly in relation to regulatory matters, with Nick Rowe having successfully acted in cases concerning the Rugby Football Union and the General Medical Council.

For help or advice on any business employment law or HR matter please contact Nick Rowe on 01242 229096.

Employment law disputes

At Lodders, we understand that employment disputes are sometimes unavoidable. When these disputes do occur, our employment solicitors have vast experience in defending all manner of claims including all kinds of unfair dismissal, all forms of discrimination (sex, race, disability, sexual orientation and age), breach of contract, restrictive covenants and whistle-blowing.

Lodders’ employment solicitors offer a wealth of procedural experience in employment tribunal, employment appeal tribunal and High Court litigation. We recognise the importance of working with our clients to achieve their overall objective in the case, whether that is a swift resolution by way of a negotiated settlement or fighting the case to a judicial conclusion.

For help or advice on any business employment law or HR matter please contact Nick Rowe (Cheltenham) on 01242 229096 or Mike Wakeling (Stratford upon avon) on 01789 206102.

Reviews & Testimonials

  • Over the years, Nick Rowe’s advice has proven invaluable to me and the companies that have engaged my services.
    MH, Senior Executive
  • Dispute issues arise, and over the last 15 years we have instructed Mike Wakeling at Lodders to advise. He has the experience and knowledge, which along with expert opinion if necessary, allows an informed decision on proceeding. On the issues which needed pursuing, we’ve also found determination and attention to detail, and are very happy to recommend his services.
