Many people can expect at some stage in their careers to have to take professional advice from an employment lawyer. This may be before they start a new job, while they are doing it or when they leave.
Having heard too often and too late, ‘I wish I’d found out about this before now. I didn’t bother to check at the time’, we know it is vital to address the critical points before they become a problem.
Unlike other firms, we represent only individuals, be they executive or non-executive directors, senior managers and members of professional organisations or shareholders. This gives us a unique perspective when facing, as we regularly do, some of the largest organisations in the United Kingdom and the world.
Our team has for many years been working with individuals across a broad range of industries. We understand the tactics used by employers and their advisers; several members of our team come from a corporate background. We are therefore familiar with what is important both to organisations and to clients. Our experience enables us to anticipate and deal with organisations through negotiation, mediation or, if necessary, legal proceedings.
Our approach is to work with those organisations and our clients to deliver positive solutions, not legal problems. Our role is not just about legal counsel. It is to enable our clients to work confidently with supportive, knowledgeable professionals who can make a difference to their situation. We focus on giving pragmatic, legal and strategic advice.
We offer a skilful, explicit examination of each situation. If we raise a matter, it is because it is important to us and to our clients.
If a situation requires legal proceedings or mediation, we have a team of skilled lawyers who are well positioned to help. Other areas of work for the team are:
The Legal 500 United Kingdom 2016/17 edition stated that "Slater and Gordon is highly regarded for its senior executive work for partners, City executives and medical professionals.

Julie Morris leads the department, which includes finance sector specialists Clive Howard and John Marshall.“
Whether you are working for a national or an international organisation, and whether the matter is amicable or highly contentious, Slater and Gordon Lawyers can help.
