speaking to an employment law expert

Why are Ellis Whittam the right choice for your Employment Law Experts?

We believe in the value of a personal approach. That’s why we assign a dedicated team of named Employment Law specialists who will get to know your organisation and how you operate.

That way, when you pick up the phone looking for employment law help, you’re speaking to someone who understands how you work and can provide the best possible advice on the issues you are facing – with no need for catching up and no time wasted.

By taking the time to get to know your business inside out, we’re able to truly understand your commercial objectives and work with you to achieve them.

Importantly, unlike some of our competitors, we use an entirely independent FCA-regulated insurer. This means, as totally transparent employment law company, we don’t have our bottom line at the back of our mind when we’re advising you; the decisions we make have only your interests and desired end result in mind.

Unlike a traditional solicitors firm, where you may pay an extortionate upfront cost and then additional fees for small tasks, we provide unlimited support on a fair, fixed-fee basis. This means that your costs remain the same no matter how much your business grows or how many times you need our support.

What’s more, our honest and open approach means that when you outsource your employment law to Ellis Whittam, there’s no hidden charges or automatic renewal clauses to worry about.

For added peace of mind, our Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) for Employment Tribunals covers the cost of defence, settlements and awards in the event of an employee bringing a claim against you. Therefore, if you were to lose a discrimination claim, you could stand to save approximately £24,500 to £38,000.
