Employment for Business

Lionshead Employment Retainer Service for Business

Unlike other law firms, we don’t have an hourly rate and we don’t time record. At Lionshead Law, we understand how important it is for businesses to manage their overheads whilst taking into consideration their duties and potential liabilities. We help them to make informed yet commercial decisions. For this reason, after completing work on the first instruction we receive from you, we will suggest you sign up to our retainer. That way you can ensure that we are “always here for you…

It is far better to avoid tribunal claims completely than to defend them, yet the ever-changing landscape in employment legislation means many businesses feel overwhelmed with what they are and aren’t allowed to do; often burying their heads in the sand and hoping for the best. Concerned about the costs of legal advice, employers frequently make wrong, and ultimately expensive, decisions.

Having a solicitor at the end of a phone or e-mail to answer your queries is invaluable and our aim is to ensure that this service is both personal and affordable.

For a fixed monthly fee based upon your staff head-count, we will provide you with:

  • An annual review of your contracts of employment and staff handbook
  • A solicitor to answer your day-to-day employment and HR queries on everything from disciplinaries and dismissals to sickness and holiday rights; from maternity/paternity/parental rights to discrimination claims and TUPE
  • Access to our precedent bank
  • Regular updates on relevant changes to UK employment legislation
