Who We Are

Meet the Team

Our story so far...

Hamilton Nash® was founded to provide independent employee relations services to businesses with or without their own HR function. We specialise in employee case work and conflict resolution, e.g. grievances and dispute resolution, disciplinary investigations and appeals. We can also provide support and advice with Employment Tribunals, as well as restructuring and redundancies.

Most of our services can be provided remotely. We have a distributed team with a presence in both the South East and the Midlands, and so we cover most of the United Kingdom for any on-site work or Tribunal appearances.
