It's CEO and Principal is Graham Darwood who set up the consultancy in 2004. We are based in London although we service companies across the UK. Our niche size and the LLG Law ethos mean that we are able to offer a range of high-quality, specialist employment law services to both companies and individual clients. However, we have neither the factory-like atmosphere nor the high overheads which characterise many competitors – and our services are personal and more cost-effective.
Our overriding objective in dealing with any employment dispute or claim is that we offer commercial and practical advice. Many employment disputes are either resolved amicably or settled at an early stage, but if that is not possible, our experience and commercial awareness give the best chance of a positive outcome.
We offer both employers and employees professional advices on all aspects of UK Employment law including but not limited to: HR Consultancy, Contracts of Employment, Redundancy, TUPE, Dismissals, Discrimination and Settlement Agreements.
We deal with all matters whether non-contentious (professional advices) or contentious (bringing or defending claims).
Grievance and Disciplinary processes including appeals and investigations. These issues need to be carefully crafted and policies and procedures followed where available. We have experienced consultants that can guide you through the relevant steps as appropriate.
Employee, Consultant, Self-Employed or otherwise. From junior employees to CEO’s our consultants have extensive experience of drafting contractual documentation to ensure that your best interests are safeguarded.
Individual or collective consultations including process and appeals. Any redundancy situation is difficult and therefore it needs to be carefully crafted and policies and procedures followed where available. Our consultants have considerable experience in this field.
Consultation and engagement with employees affected by a transfer of a business or undertaking is critical to avoid issues. We have experienced consultants that can guide you through the relevant and complex steps as appropriate.
A monthly paid service where you will have a consultant on hand to deal with all HR and employment law issues. This will cover any disputes and employee issues that arise and is exceptional value for money. Full details and terms available on request.
Unfair, constructive or automatically unfair. After two years continuous service any dismissal needs to be carefully crafted and a proper procedure followed to ensure compliance with the statutory right not to be unfairly dismissed.
Direct, indirect, detriment, harassment or victimisation on any of the prohibited characteristics including but not limited to sex, race, dsiability, religion or sexual orientation. There is no continuous service qualification applicable in these circumstances.
Drafting and amending where necessary to ensure your position is protected and your best interests promoted. Please note that other than in exceptional circumstances we do not negotiate on the compensation amount which should in most cases be agreed.
