Employment Law Solicitor

Often employers will go to a law firm in the search for a good Employment Law Solicitor.

Why? Because employers are convinced that Employment Law solicitors, exchange for paying high hourly rates, they will have high-quality advice and assurance that they are complying with the law.

But are Employment Law Solicitors actually the best option for your organisation?

The truth is probably not.

Is a fixed fee provider for Employment Law like Ellis Whittam the answer?
