Accreditations / Awards

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.

David Ross, Managing Director

Valeos Ltd

Louise is a professional of the highest calibre whose knowledge of employment law is second to none. There are of course many lawyers out there who also have a good level of knowledge in the same subject. However what always impresses me about Louise is how she applies her expertise. She links her main speciality - employment law - to her substantial commercial knowledge and awareness. This is then married to some very astute tactical thinking, resulting in superb results for her clients. Louise's service delivery is also highly impressive.

David Ross

Clients note that "She's very knowledgeable, down-to-earth, personable and happy to answer questions."

Chambers & Partners UK 2016

Louise is incredibly knowledgeable and commercially focused in the advice she gives and service she provides. She takes time to understand her client's actual needs and that is what makes her stand out from other employment lawyers I have worked with; she gives honest practical advice and not text book answers. I can read the books myself and have an understanding of employment law as a HR professional, what Louise brings is a wider appreciation and execution of the law in an easy to follow manner and in her personable style. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services.
