Why Choose Richard Nelson LLP For Employment Law Advice For Employers?
Richard Nelson’s employment law team is headed by partner Jayne Harrison, an experienced lawyer with considerable knowledge of employment matters that businesses may have to deal with. Our wider team consists of employment specialists across the UK, each of whom is well-placed to support your business.
Richard Nelson LLP’s employment solicitors will act as trusted partners to your business, providing practical and commercial solutions to your employment problems so that you can focus on your work. We take the time to get to know our clients and work closely with them. This ensures we are able to offer clients practical and commercially sensitive advice, which is tailor-made to their needs.
We know that other non-solicitors offer HR and/or employment packages but we are not competing with these companies. Unlike solicitors, communications with HR consultants and unqualified advisers offering HR advice and packages are not protected by ‘legal privilege’. This means that their advice must be disclosed in legal proceedings, however confidential in nature. Taking advice from our team will ensure that the confidentiality of the advice you receive is protected at all times, thus providing further protection for your business.
