Working with You...the Employee

As a firm, we understand that we are often consulted by people when they are at their most vulnerable, and they need pragmatic and realistic advice. After all, in the majority of cases, what is at stake is not simply a job, but often a career and an ongoing source of income. We also appreciate that different people will have different objectives, and we will provide you with the advice required to obtain the best possible outcome for your own particular case.

Unlike many other legal firms, we have vast experience in advising both employers and employees, and therefore are ideally suited to see matters from both sides of the employment relationship.

We are able to provide representation in connection with all forms of employment law litigation, including:

  • Unfair Dismissal Claims
  • All Discrimination Claims
  • Redundancies
  • Whistleblowing
  • Contracts of Employment
  • Compromise Agreements




We can make it work for You...the Employer

We understand how critical it is for a business to make the right decisions concerning employment law on a day to day basis, so as to not only protect the long-term reputation of a business, but to save money and limit risk.

We have experience advising a wide range of business clients, from SME’s to larger companies. We also have the ability to develop and advance longstanding working relationships with our clients, which allows us to develop an understanding of their business, and what they require from us in order to function at their optimum. We understand that each business has its own particular concerns and issues, and that there is no 'one size fits all' approach to this complex area of the law. Instead, we aim to work with our clients to provide them practical and commercially sound advice at all times.

We are able to advise on issues encompassing the entire relationship between employer and employee, including the following:

  • Contracts of Employment
  • Workplace Policies and Procedures
  • Workplace Conflict Resolution
  • Disciplinary and Performance Issues
  • Business Restructuring and Redundancies
  • All Employment Related Litigation (claims for unfair and constructive dismissal, discrimination, equal pay)
  • Restrictive Covenants

Holdens are also able to provide HR Consultancy services to support companies who may not have their own HR function. Please see the Holdens HR pages for more information.
