Employment Solicitors & Employment Lawyers
Why Summerfield Browne?
What sets us apart from many other employment solicitors is that we deliver legal services using a business model that utilises the best aspects of the traditional employment law firm but which also incorporates a flexible consultancy based legal services model. This means that many of our employment solicitors are consultants who work remotely at various locations in England and by using the latest IT technology they can service our clients anywhere in England and Wales. Our business model means that clients have the option of choosing either remote delivery of legal services which is simple, effective and cost efficient or alternatively the more traditional delivery of legal services via meetings in person at either our serviced offices or at the client's business premises.
With the exception of our administrative headquarters, we only use serviced offices for basic needs such as telephone answering. Any additional fees for meetings are only incurred on an "as and when" used basis which means that we do not incur many of the significant property overheads which are incurred by other more traditional employment law firms.
Our employment solicitors provide expert advice in relation to contentious and non-contentious employment law. We act for employers and also employees, and we find acting for both sides provides additional experience, which enables us to put ourselves in the "shoes" of the other party in determining the appropriate strategy for our clients. As an employment law firm we always consider the "end game" and ensure that where possible our clients achieve their ultimate goals.
