BLM's Commercial Employment team provide pragmatic business advice on employment issues to customers ranging from household name international companies and public sector institutions to small owner managed businesses and senior individuals. We have many years of experience in providing employers with the right business outcome, speedily and cost effectively, no matter how complex the situation.
Each member of the team has specialised in providing business employment advice for many years and this depth of expertise is reflected in our problem-solving approach. We seek to provide insightful business focused guidance which delivers real value for you.
We support you at every stage of the employment relationship, from drafting and maintaining contracts and handbooks, to advising on dismissal. Our Employment team has expertise in the following areas:
We pride ourselves on developing trusted adviser relationships. We have extensive experience of working with in-house HR professionals to enhance the service that they provide within their own business.
When urgent advice is needed to protect your business, our senior lawyers have the experience to assess the situation quickly and provide the right legal and practical advice, often working with our colleagues in our commercial litigation, information technology and corporate and commercial law teams.
While we work in all sectors, we have particular expertise in hospitality, retail, manufacturing, healthcare and education, and bring in-depth knowledge of those industries to the advice which we provide.
We offer complete transparency on costs, and are able to offer fixed fee quotes on the work we undertake, having first analysed and identified a recommended cause of action.
The commercial employment team is led by a partner with over 25 years of experience in employment law and three senior solicitors, who have specialised in employment law for between eight and 15 years. We are based at our Manchester office, but are able to provide advice from all of our offices across the UK.
