Employment Law Solicitors & HR For Your Business


Employees can be the greatest asset to your business, but if things go wrong they can also be a great source of cost, risk and difficulty. Employment law changes on a regular basis and Employment Tribunals are costly, so it’s important to get the most up-to-date advice. By not keeping up with legislation and observing your duties as an employer, you could unwittingly be running the risk of great cost to your business.

How can you avoid costly mistakes that many employers make?

We have experience across the range of employment issues and the service we provide can be tailored to meet your particular needs.

Client Testimonials

I would like to stress how thoroughly grateful I am with the service and advice Joanna Robson has provided to me for an ongoing employment dispute.

From our initial meeting with my wife and I, she had shown a real compassion for us during a very stressful period and throughout the entire case she has given outstanding advice and in turn has helped me to achieve the best outcome and financial settlement that I could have hoped for.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Joanna and Pickering Solicitors in the future.

JJ Baker, Jan 2024

I would just like to say that after a very shocking voluntary redundancy, I was very impressed with how Joanna handled this process on my behalf. She was very professional and also reassuring at the the same time, she put me at ease in an unexpected situation. Credit due.

Anon, Nov 2023
