Employment Law Solicitors 

Spencer Shaw Solicitors are specialists in employment law and can help you navigate the complexities of employment legislation.  
The English legal system is very complex, even for specialists. But when it comes to day-to-day management of people, we believe the best advice is to keep policies and procedures simple so that everyone can understand them.  
We have supported employees in tribunals where the employer’s policies have been so complicated, even experienced HR personnel haven’t been able to explain them to the judge. This level of confusion benefits nobody - had the employer used easy-to-understand policies, the conflict may have been avoided altogether. 


Lockdown and social distancing measures have had a huge impact on workplaces across every industry. Read about your rights and obligations as an employer or employee regarding coronavirus. 


As an employer, failure to understand and correctly apply employment law could cost you in tribunal claims, compensation, low morale, reputational damage and loss of productivity. Our employment solicitors help you to follow the law to avoid conflict, and provide a defence if an employee does bring a claim against you. 


We understand that it can be overwhelming trying to understand your rights as an employee, and daunting to challenge your employer. Our employment solicitors offer expert advice and empathetic support to help protect your rights. We pride ourselves on the cases where we have reached a satisfactory outcome whilst maintaining the parties' working relationship. 

Human Resources 

We work closely with both HR departments and independent HR specialists to ensure your business or clients receive expert HR services. We can support you with keeping contracts, policies and procedures in line with the law; help to resolve disputes before a tribunal is needed; and offer expert training on the latest updates in employment law. 

Senior Executives 

Employment contracts for Executives and Senior Officers usually require greater detail and often include restrictive covenants. Our employment solicitors can support you before, during and when ending your employment relationships, to negotiate the best terms, protect your rights and reach favourable severance packages.  


We can help you to decide whether litigation is the most effective course of action to resolve your dispute. If it is, we can represent you throughout your case making sure that your interests are protected and you reach the best outcome for you in the circumstances. With professional representation you will have expert legal advice and peace of mind. 

Settlement Agreements 

Legal advice is vital when making a settlement agreement, as failure to follow the rules could make your agreement unenforceable. We are experienced working with both employers and employees in settling disputes. Whether you need an agreement drafting, advice about your rights or help to negotiate the offer, our employment solicitors can help.

Absolutely professional! 
The service I received was very professional. Ian Jones dealt with the issue I had in a very compassionate way. He was very thorough in fully understanding the situation to ensure that he could assist me. There were many terms that I was unfamiliar with that he clarified for me. 
If I need legal assistance again Spencer Shaw will be my first port of call.
