Whether you are part of an in-house Human Resources department or an independent HR provider, we can help you. We bring many years’ experience working with HR professionals to provide efficient and thorough services to their company or client. 
We can help you reduce the risk of employment claims by advising you on the law and how to correctly apply it. We can advise you on any potential problems and how to fix them so your company, or that of your client, runs smoothly and complies with current requirements. 


The Human Resources Department is the first port of call for any issue that affects the workforce. But sometimes your HR department might need additional support. It might be because you’re facing a complex or unusual dispute, because the area of law involved is a developing area, or you just want the peace of mind that your actions are legally sound. 
There’s no need to employ an inhouse solicitor or pay an expensive retainer all year round. We can work with HR departments as and when we are needed, so you only pay us for time and advice that is needed. 


As an HR specialist with an independent practice, it’s vital that all the advice you offer is up-to-date and legally correct. Incorrect or out of date advice could damage your reputation and leave you facing legal claims from clients. 
Our role complements your HR service, offering legal specialists for you to call upon so you can provide a great service with clear, up to date advice. Our resources can save you time on answering questions and speed up turnaround for your client, making your job easier and your service more competitive. 


Our solicitors are experienced working with both employers and employees. This means that, as well as understanding what works well for businesses like yours or your client’s, we understand how employees approach disputes. We use this experience to understand business from both sides and try to help you resolve problems before they lead to full-blown legal disputes. 
As well as in-depth Employment Law knowledge, our team’s combined experience includes 12 years’ experience in HR and qualifications in Business and HR Management. We understand business, and how to protect a business's interests. 
We’re clear and upfront on costs, so you won’t need to worry about unexpected fees. Thanks to our focus on quality of service, not quantity of cases, your issue will get the attention it needs, when it needs it. We pride ourselves on our clear advice in plain English, so you won’t need to waste time translating legal jargon for the rest of the business. 
We have a 5-star rating on Review Solicitors, where clients rate us as excellent in value for money, communication, approachability and legal knowledge.

Very useful. Ian is a great speaker. 
Brilliant session! 
Very insightful


I have used many - many - solicitors / law firms over my last 20+ years in business and I found Spencer Shaw to be very knowledgeable and able to give me some excellent initial advice over the phone (from Ian, who is clearly very knowledgeable about employment law) and they then drafted some proper self employment contracts for us. I would definitely recommend the firm to other businesses looking for high quality employment law advice. 
Cannot fault the service I received. The entire team were so helpful and professional. From my first phone call to my last the team at Spencer Shaw really took the time to understand my needs and take me through the process step by step. Furthermore, the speed of the service was incredible. It really was a pleasure and I could not recommend enough! 
Very professional, efficient and helpful explaining everything in detail, would definitely recommend them
