Training

Our Approach & Track Record

We are the top rated premium employment law boutique for employers in the UK.

Our team provides training on the full range of employment law issues.

We take the time to understand your business and your risk profile so that we can match our training to your needs, particularly your attitude to risk.

We take a proactive approach to your training needs, keeping abreast of legal developments and highlighting sessions that we think may be useful to run. We don’t wait for you to tell us what you want, we do the thinking for you.

Our training sessions are all designed to be practical and interactive and we often run sessions based on a case study so that our clients can understand legal concepts in a familiar context.

We regularly attend our client’s update meetings and will help train your junior members of staff.
