We are HR and employment law experts, specialising in employee relations. Based in Wokingham, we support businesses of all sizes in London and across England & Wales.

What we do

We provide fast, effective relief from the heartburn of people problems.

Grievance & Disciplinary

We specialise in handling issues that are especially sensitive, or that involve Executive level stakeholders. We conduct thorough investigations, hear appeals, and provide guidance on reaching a satisfactory outcome.

HR Advice & Employment Law Support

Whether you have a current situation or sense something brewing, we can provide pragmatic, legally robust advice on how to deal with it. We can also assist with settlement agreements and support you with Employment Tribunal proceedings.

Workplace Mediation

Mediation is usually far more effective than a grievance process for resolving workplace conflicts. Grievances result in decisions on who is right or wrong, whereas mediation focuses more on resolving differences and reconciling working relationships.

Don't get tied in to multi-year contracts or monthly retainer fees...

Most outsourced HR providers require you to pay a monthly retainer or want a contractual commitment. Many of our clients first approached us because that's exactly what they didn't want.

We know you can manage the day-to-day management stuff for yourself. Instead, you just want the reassurance of knowing that someone is there to help when you need it.

The first 30 minute consultation is free. If you then decide to engage us, then you only pay for the time we spend assisting you. We charge a flat rate of £96 + VAT per hour (except legal support).

If you need us to help with a more substantial engagement, e.g. delivering a training course, dealing with a major restructuring exercise, or an ongoing service then we can provide a bespoke quotation.

Got questions about our services? Please contact us.
Alternatively, you can book a free, 30-minute online consultation for a day & time that suits you.
