Employment Law is fast becoming one of the most in-demand areas that we recruit into due to the various changes in legislation that have happened recently and with further changes to legislation and Brexit on the horizon this year, it’s set to be another busy year for Employment lawyers.
Employment is an area of law enjoyed due to its varied nature; you often get a high level of client contact regardless of if you focus on acting for businesses (respondents) or individuals (claimants) or even have a caseload whereby you have a mixture of the two.
The mixture of contentious and non-contentious work is often the attraction of Employment law. The non-contentious work often allows you to become a trusted advisor for a client providing training or seminars on changes in the law as well as advising on employment contract and HR issues however, the contentious work will often see you advising on discrimination cases, dismissals, redundancy and TUPE matters and equal pay.
Over the last 12 months we’ve seen a higher demand for Employment lawyers than we have in several years and it remains to be a growth area for practices of all sizes - this trend remains the same regardless of geographic.
Interestingly, Employment isn’t a discipline that is busier in at a certain level so regardless of if you’re recently qualified or a Partner, the market remains strong.
Our Consultants will be familiar with the spectrum of roles that become available with our clients, both in-house and in private practice.
