Employment Law

Advice to suit your needs…

All businesses have employment law issues that they need advice on.  They may require a simple written statement of particulars or a more detailed retained service covering ongoing day to day advice.  Chartergates are able to advise and represent you on your terms whether it is one-off work or an ongoing retainer.  Most importantly, we adapt to your needs not the other way round.

A complete service…

Tax and employment law are intrinsically linked and advice in one area can have a profound effect on compliance in the other. What makes Chartergates different is that we also have the tax expertise to ensure that our employment law advice does not compromise your tax position.  Chartergates can ensure you are compliant in both areas – why would you use an adviser that can’t?

We won’t run for cover…

At Chartergates we can provide you with all forms of employment law advice.  We can provide you with general advice and consultancy, legal drafting services and where necessary representation at the Employment Tribunal and the Employment Appeal Tribunal.  What’s more we conduct all our representation ourselves so you are represented by the people that know you best and you have the peace of mind of knowing that when we give advice we are prepared to back it in the Tribunals.

Accurate advice but also commercial advice…

Too many employment lawyers sit behind a desk giving textbook advice only concerned with covering their own backs.  At Chartergates we take the view that you are paying us to look after your interests not to simply give you generic advice.  We provide robust advice that ensures you are compliant but that also fits the way you work and takes into account your commercial interests.

Success when it counts…

It is fine giving advice behind the comfort of your desk, what really counts is that you have advisers that have a proven track record in the Tribunals.  Our consultants have successfully defended clients in the Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal where judgments are reported.
