“We have worked with Down’s Employment Team for many years now and it was a natural evolution to subscribe to EmployLaw and continue to access their expertise with the advantage of a fixed annual cost. Whenever an employment law issue arises we know that we will always receive prompt and thorough advice on how to effectively manage it.”
Cathrine Gear, Human Resources Manager, Interpet
“From reviewing contracts and the Company Handbook, to providing support at the end of the telephone, EmployLaw has always been timely and efficient. By having a professional team with a dedicated lawyer providing us with HR legal support, we not only have peace of mind but we can tap into HR advice when we require it.”
Annetta Snider, HR Director, Punch! Generation
“We have been instructing Downs Solicitors / EmployLaw for many years and have always found the advice received from the team to be delivered in a timely, robust and business led way. They create a perfect blend of technical quality and real life application which enables us to find solutions to our problems.”
Lee Beesley, Chief Operating Officer, Grafton Medical Partners
“We have used Employlaw’s services since 2012. The team understand our business, to the point they are integral to SOEX’s operations. They bring a level of expertise, providing a seamless interface service, dovetailing perfectly with the professional standards we constantly set to achieve.
Every aspect of our employment contracts and related laws are constantly supported by Employlaw, creating improved staff relations and ultimate wellbeing.
The personal service they provide sets Employlaw apart.”
Andy Haws, CEO, SOEX
“We are always wary of signing up to retainers of any kind, as so often you just don’t get the value you are hoping for, but I can honestly say this is one of the best spends our business has ever made. To have highly qualified and responsive solicitors on hand to guide us through the HR minefield is both a real time-saver and extremely comforting. Having quality advice and assistance means that we can make the best decisions whilst ensuring we are always compliant; and properly covered should we ever need to defend our position. Nicola and the team have been a pleasure to deal with and we would recommend their services to any business that doesn’t have an in-house legal team.”
Oliver Clark, Director, Optimum Companies Limited
“EmployLaw are professional, thorough and prompt in their response as well as very approachable. We have benefitted from their invaluable support in setting up flexible work contracts, putting together the Staff Handbook and in knowing we have the back up of their expertise and guidance in employment law. This enables us to develop our charity so that our services can be offered to teenagers, their families and schools across the country. We have no hesitation in recommending them.”
Dr Nihara Krause, CEO, STEM4
“Maui Jim have worked alongside Nicola and the EmployLaw team for the past year. We are about to renew our subscription for a further three years. The team have always been responsive, honest and transparent, all of the qualities we as a company value. Response times have been very quick and all questions answered thoroughly and timely.
We thank them for their support and look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”
Donna Ansell, Operations Director UK, Maui Jim
“The pragmatic and down to earth advice provided by EmployLaw, frequently provided ‘on demand’, invariably leads to an equitable outcome, with a clear insight into the legal responsibilities of all parties.”
David Laybourne, Managing Director, REAL Digital International Limited

Nicola has guided us through several complicated employment issues all of which have resulted in a positive outcome. EmployLaw has always provided excellent support, practical guidance and information in a timely fashion on a wide variety of scenarios, perfectly tailored to meet our requirements.”
