Steeles Law


Our team of specialist employment lawyers offers a comprehensive range of practical and commercial advice to local, national and international clients on complex and often sensitive problems that occur in the workplace.

We advise businesses of all sizes and have particular expertise in advising local authorities and public sector organisations.

Employment law is increasingly complicated and the consequences of getting it wrong can be costly. We provide employers with a clear path through their legal obligations and our employment lawyers pride themselves on delivering timely and straightforward advice. We have extensive experience of representing employers at employment tribunal hearings across the country.

We advise businesses on all aspects of employment law, including:

  • employment documentation: contracts, policies and procedures
  • business transfers and reorganisations including collective consultation requirements in redundancy and TUPE situations
  • handling grievances
  • disciplinary proceedings and dismissals
  • employee disputes and tribunal proceedings
  • industrial action and trade union recognition
  • workplace discrimination

We keep employers informed of developments in employment law though our regular e-news updates and our popular employment law update seminars. We also provide tailored in-house training to businesses with a view to limiting future liabilities and reducing tribunal claims.

Please contact us for a no-obligation discussion of how we can help your organisation.
