Employment Law Services

Whether it is your first employee or your thousandth employee, taking on new people is an exciting step and a sign of growth and success. But building your dream team around you is not always plain sailing.

At Smithfield Partners, our lawyers are not just employment law experts but we also understand the day to day complexities and practicalities of managing staff and the difficulties of hiring and firing. We also understand the different commercial arrangements for engaging staff outside of the traditional employment relationship, from individual consultancy to outsourced services arrangements.

We can draft tailor made contracts for engaging staff in any capacity, help you create policies and procedures or guide you through a redundancy or dismissal process. After completing a job but we do not just close your file and send it to our accounts department for processing, we always look to go beyond that by seeking ways to continually support our clients with their ongoing employment law issues.

We may be City of London lawyers, with all the expertise and professionalism that brings, but we also have the unique approachability and personal touch of a smaller firm. Think of us as your company’s dedicated human resource legal support team, here to protect you and your business from potentially damaging employment claims.

Whether you need a better understanding of your employment law obligations, or just want us to answer those employment queries that crop up from time to time – we are only ever a phone call or email away.
