‘Andrew Gilchrist is my go-to person for employment law. He always responds to my calls or emails same day, so I am never left in the lurch, and issues get dealt with very quickly and effectively. In the last 12 months, we have had several needs for advice and he always gives us the time we require to explain the law, the risk and the possible outcomes. His communication skills are superb and his plain speaking is very appreciated for non-legally-trained clients.‘

Legal 500 2021

"In my eight years of using Lupton Fawcett, I have had nothing but a positive experience. Whenever I get referred to a different team or colleague whom I have not worked with before, they are completely up to speed with my company and are very responsive and helpful. Their fees are very reasonable too. All in all, an excellent experience at every level of the organisation.‘

Legal 500 2021

“We have used the services of Glenn for the past 21 years to include various employment law issues, contract and terms of business advice, contracts of employment etc. Glenn has always been extremely helpful in his advice and has a deep understanding and knowledge of employment law. He has the ability to explain in lay man's terms the implications of his advice to enable one to grasp the situation and make decisions accordingly. I have no hesitation in recommending Glenn”

I work closely with Angela Gorton who has taken the time to get to know our business, is always on the end of a phone and gives sound, practical advice. Angela is definitely my first ‘go-to’ for legal advice.

Lots of lawyers say they provide commercial advice but he (Andrew Gilchrist) is one of the few who actually does.

John Unwin

Managing Director, Arcelor Mittal Sheffield

A friend of mine recommended your firm, as she had been really impressed with the work Louise did for her, and I've been equally impressed and grateful for the work you have done for me (Alex Evans). It was a pleasure to work with you, and I was really touched by your level of compassion and understanding. I made a daft and regrettable mistake, but I feel you presented my actions in a best light possible under the circumstances, and showed an excellent understanding of human nature in achieving an agreeable solution.

Sarah Osborn

I would have no hesitation in recommending Alex, she responds promptly to all queries and her advice and counsel are reasoned and set out in an easy to understand format. She always takes a business based perspective and is aware of the pressures and demands of the very fast moving industry we operate in. Her attention to detail is, and has been, beneficial to the business and her personal involvement in cases, from first contact to satisfactory conclusion, ensures that there is continuity and also that we have a completely 'up to date' understanding of all aspects.

Gordon Slaven

Regional Human Resource Advisor, Card Factory

Alex will always respond promptly with a pleasant and friendly approach and I have never felt that any question was too small or insignificant to warrant her time. Alex breaks through the complexities of the ever changing, ever challenging realm of employment law with ease.

Deborah Seymore

Director of Human Resources, Hand Picked Hotels

I have known and worked with Alex for 5 years and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her. Alex has taken her time to gain a thorough understanding of how we operate as a business which helps her to advise us, not only in line with the law, but also in line with our Company values and approach to people management. Alex’s solid legal knowledge together with her practical and pragmatic approach has ensured the smooth running of acquisitions and disposals of hotels within our Group as well as supporting with any more challenging day to day employee relations issues.

Deborah Seymore

Director of Human Resources, Hand Picked Hotels

Alex is flexible to our needs and incredibly responsive. I always know I'll get a great service level and quick turnaround time with her. Friendly, approachable and fun, Alex adds value to any business she works with. She is always actively helping to develop my and my teams employment law knowledge and she's a fabulous karaoke singer at the Christmas party! I would have no hesitation in recommending Alex for any employment law requirement.
