Employment law advice

If you need employment law advice that goes beyond the remit of our HR consultants then we’ll be very happy to introduce you to the most appropriate Ashtons Legal lawyer to guide you in your particular circumstances.  

We recognise that some of our clients already have other lawyers to supply this service and we will, of course, work with them on your behalf.  However, if what you are seeking is a team to become a seamless part of your business and work with you to reduce your risks as an employer, then Ashtons Legal’s employment lawyers can work with us to fill that role.
