Employment

We advise strategically on the whole spectrum of employment law.

We handle all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment law, collective and individual. Our lawyers have niche expertise in business immigration, as well as extensive experience in equality and diversity, data protection, business acquisitions and reorganisations, mediation, TUPE, employee investigations, pensions, trade union law, and disciplinary and grievance procedures.

Our team has a strong reputation for high-profile, complex and sensitive employment litigation. We deal with claims in both employment tribunals and the civil courts, often undertaking tribunal advocacy ourselves to provide clients with consistency of representation from start to finish.

We’ve completed work of national significance for the Welsh Government, the Intellectual Property Office and the British Medical Association. We also advise prominent individuals and multi-national businesses – especially in the heavy manufacturing, retail, transport, tech and pharmaceutical industries.

Learning and development is part of our service, too. As well as representing our clients and advising their HR teams, we provide in-house training, offer secondment opportunities, and run regular employment law briefings and topical workshops.

Thanks to our links with Capital People, our clients also enjoy easy access to expert HR, organisational development, and health and safety consultants.

Capital Law have been advising the BMA on a number of employment law matters. Very client friendly, always available and confident in their judgement, they bring a wealth of knowledge and practical experience which has proved to be invaluable.
