Tell us a bit about your company and what you do…
We are one of the UK’s only niche law firms specialising in
all things HR and Employment Law. We cover everything from outsourced HR
services, drafting contracts and policies, giving advice to our clients on
employee sickness, grievances and disciplinaries as well as dealing with
employment tribunal claims if things go wrong.
Who are the key members of your team and what are their
Our team is made up of the employment lawyers including
myself as a specialist employment solicitor, Lindsey Gaimster, solicitor and
Amelia Wheatstone, employment lawyer. We also have 5 HR Associates in the team
who offer other services such as conducting disciplinary and grievance
hearings, Executive coaching and performance and change management
What type of companies and businesses are you currently
We deal with a whole range of SMEs and charities. Our fixed
fee HR package, Watertight HR, particularly appeals to those who want expert
advice and protection in a cost effective way with us effectively being their
HR and legal department. Many of the local tech companies are taking this up
and find it a great way to get on with running their business, leaving us to
look after their compliance and tricky employment issues.
What do you find most interesting about focussing on HR
& employment law?
I am a bit of a geek when it comes to employee relations! I
love the fact that we can influence our clients to putting in place fair and
effective policies for their employees. If things don’t work out with an
employee it can be really stressful for everyone. We take that away and give
them creative solutions to either retain or dismiss an employee, minimising the
costly risk of tribunal claims against them.
What inspired you to move to the Workstation?
I have worked in a legal capacity for the Showroom
Workstation and some of its tenants for many years. When looking for new
city centre premises it was an ideal choice. Our office is close to the train
station, the facilities are great and as we put on seminars and workshops for
clients, the events facilities also work for us.
What is your favourite thing about being based in Sheffield?
I love being in a part of the city centre which is
developing, not corporate, a little bit quirky and really friendly.
