Thank you Nathan and can I say how impressed I was with your approach and detail, it made the whole process as easy as it can be

I wanted to say big big thanks for recommending Nathan to help me with my settlement agreement. He has been great and very helpful indeed. I would not hesitate recommending him to other people.

Nathan was able to bring to a successful conclusion a difficult settlement which could have been avoided had I had his knowledge of this area of employment law. He has also been able to advise me on other matters in his personal and friendly manner.

Mike Shingler, Owner

Care Micro Systems Ltd

Excellent and practical advice. I was impressed by how he understood the issue and was able to put himself in my shoes. Highly recommended!

Virginia Phillips, Director and Owner

Red Oyster Limited

I cannot recommend Nathan highly enough. Throughout the course of my case I found Nathan to be efficient, thorough, professional and creative. He was also supportive and compassionate during what was a very difficult time for me. Needless to say that the Tribunal found in our favour.

Nathan has an incisive ability to grasp complex situations and quickly assess the way forward. He took ownership and instilled confidence with his calm approach. A very, very knowledgeable individual and a genuinely nice bloke. Five star recommendation from me.

Nathan is a first class employment lawyer as he not only has detailed legal knowledge but he is very much in touch with human nature. This is beneficial for a number of reasons: He recognises your own personality type and typical tendencies for irrational behaviour and so subtly guides you to a more sensible solution! His understanding of human nature also means that his predictions regarding the "other sides" next move is typically correct and as such has generally taken it into account with his advice!

I have worked with Louise for over 15+ years in my various HR director roles at Rotherham TEC, Vocalink and now Costcutter. She gives commercial and pragmatic advice on complex issues, responds swiftly, and above all works in partnership with me and the rest of the team.

Wendy Taylor, Human Resources Director

Costcutter

When Louise says she will get back to you she does - every time. Whether you are an employer or an employee (or even from the media and seeking some expert opinion) I would not hesitate to recommend Louise.
