Strategies to protect your business

What our employment lawyers do

DMH Stallard’s employment lawyers seek to combine technical excellence with an in-depth knowledge of our client organisations. We work hard to understand our clients' needs so we can build long term mutually productive relationships with them.

Our expertise and experience of cost-effective project and case management enables us to help plan and guide our clients on strategic and complex issues as well as working with them on day-to-day operational matters. We handle a high volume of Employment Tribunal litigation, overwhelmingly for employers, usually conducting our own advocacy in the Tribunal.

Our expertise includes:

  • Strategic Advice
  • Operational Advice
  • Employment Disputes and Litigation
  • TUPE, Outsourcing & Corporate Transactions
  • Executive Recruitment & Termination
  • Contracts, Policies & Procedures
  • Business Immigration
  • Employment Knowledge Programme

What they say

"Highly accessible services ... Practical advice. Good value for money."

Legal 500 UK 2021

Our comprehensive Knowledge Programme includes tailored training that we regularly provide to our clients with a particular focus on supporting their strategic and business objectives. 

How our employment lawyers work

Our objective is to work with our clients to improve efficiencies and the quality of outcome, always with an eye on managing and reducing costs.

Our Efficiency Audit is a tangible example of our partnership approach to working with our clients, identifying improvements to the way we work together.

Our dedicated teams in London, Gatwick and Guildford work with many high profile national clients in the private, public and third sectors.
