One of the leading commercial law firms in the North, Baines Wilson LLP provides expert advice on all areas of employment law for Employers only.
Our aim is to use our employment lawyers' specialist skills and experience to protect your interests.
Our team acts exclusively for Employers.
Our clients range from plcs to household names to small family owned companies.
Our approach is practical rather than legalistic. We will not just tell you what the law says and leave you to make your own decisions. We will work with you to produce the right solutions to your employment law problems.
We are experienced advocates in Employment Tribunals across the UK and help our clients gain and maintain the initiative in employment disputes.
We are well known in the region and further afield for our ability to handle not just routine employment matters but also the more difficult matters, which tend to be dealt with by only the larger "City" practices.
For example, we have extensive experience in advising on Industrial action, obtaining High Court injunctions to protect clients' businesses from unfair competition from (ex)employees, advising on Boardroom disputes and the removal of Directors/Shareholders and Senior Managers.
We act promptly. We understand deadlines. We stick to them.
