Business Employment Law
In employment-related legal matters, technical expertise is just the starting point. You need a legal adviser who understands your business and the commercial challenges you are facing, and who offers clear, pragmatic advice on the options and the risks of different courses of action.
At Morrisons, our employment team works with businesses large and small – from SMEs and multi-nationals to start-ups – to resolve employment matters in a way that protects your assets and reputation and which helps you to realise your strategic goals. Our team comprises specialists drawn from leading City and regional practices who are adept at delivering cost-effective commercially focused advice. That’s why we are recognised by both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners. We will ensure that your contracts, processes and practices are compliant and appropriate to your business, and designed to avoid legal issues arising or recurring.
We also understand the importance of transparency on costs and will always provide you with a fixed fee or clearly detailed estimate at the outset, plus regular updates as matters progress.
We work closely with colleagues in Corporate and Finance, and with other specialists around the firm, to ensure that the advice you receive goes beyond technical accuracy to support your business and reflect your culture and values. Your people are one of your greatest business assets and also one of your largest costs. Through timely advice and legal updates, including seminars, newsletters and blog posts, we will help you to stay abreast of developments in employment law and regulation, and to maximise the contribution your people make to your business.

- Changing Terms and Conditions of Employment

- Employment policies and company handbooks
