A Leicester employment client:

  • "I would just like to add my thanks to Sejal and Joao for their help and support throughout the matter, I’ve engaged with the law in a couple of ways over my professional career due to the nature of my work; however, this was my first time being a directly involved party with all the stresses and anxieties - you both were a great support and I can only express gratitude for taking the time to listen to my story and believing in me back in June."

  • Was there one thing that made our service special and stand out?

    "Thorough and well articulated explanations regarding the appeal process, ‘negotiation’, ACAS early conciliation, and the lead up to the tribunal itself."
