Professional service with a personal touch.

As our client, you get direct access to an experienced employment solicitor. Not all firms guarantee this. It means you have someone working for you who is highly experienced in employment law, a specialist who will find an effective solution for you.

With ever-increasing regulation, employment law raises complex legal issues. At Charsley Harrison LLP in Windsor, we give clear-cut, realistic advice to employers and employees in Windsor, Ascot, Maidenhead, Slough and Reading and further afield.

You do not need to engage a lawyer, but if you do try to sort matters out yourself, there are risks. For example:

  • An employer with excellent grounds to make someone redundant might end up facing an expensive tribunal hearing if they do not follow the correct procedures.
  • An employee might agree to an exit package without taking advice and receive much less than he or she is entitled to.
  • Our employment solicitor Paul Owen advises small- and medium-sized businesses, PLCs and employees at every level of seniority.
