Overview

Our Employment & Immigration team is the biggest in Wales. We’ve worked on some of the most complex cases in the UK.

Our lawyers are all experienced advocates who routinely appear in the ET to represent clients.

Quality and experience of individual lawyers: many of our lawyers have strong backgrounds in international and large regional law firms.

Industry sector expertise

We advise a broad range of sectors assisting businesses and individuals with:

  • Business immigration law
  • Equality & diversity
  • Mediation
  • Data management & GDPR
  • Employment tribunals
  • Settlement agreements
  • Restructuring & reorganisation
  • Grievance, disciplinary & performance
  • Employee investigations
  • TUPE
  • Trade Union advice

Key types of work

Heavyweight caseload: we handle major issues on a national basis that are high-profile, sensitive and complex in nature. We also undertake work of national significance – for example advising the Welsh Government on the NHS Wales Bill 2018. Our practice does not revolve around regional day-to-day employment matters.


Full spectrum of services: as expected of a full-service commercial law firm, we handle all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment law, with niche expertise in in-bound business immigration. We are also appointed to the National Procurement Services Framework for Wales for employment matters. Our appointment means that we can provide employment law advice to all public sector entities in Wales.
