Settlement agreements_

Settlement agreements are used to end an employment relationship on agreed terms. Helping employers and employees to make a clean break, they usually result in you making a severance payment to an employee in return for their agreement not to pursue a claim against your business.

Whilst settlement agreements are a powerful business tool, they need to be carefully drafted, as without proper legal advice, the contract will not be legally binding.
We are experts in negotiating and drafting settlement agreements for employers and employees.

Employment contracts and policies_

Having the right employment policies and contracts in place is critical to guard against the risk of potentially costly employment disputes. Contracts should permit certain variations; restrict employees activities post termination; protect confidential information; and allow employers to deduct money where appropriate.

Being a regularly changing area of law, at Beswicks Legal we review such contracts and documentation on your behalf, making sure your business is up-to-date and legally compliant.

Redundancy and business reorganisations_

The redundancy/reorganisation process can be difficult for employers as well as employees.
As well as being emotionally challenging, it is vital that, as an employer, you receive expert legal advice to ensure you adhere to the proper procedures. Failure to follow these procedures could result in subsequent unfair dismissal claims.

At Beswicks Legal, our employment solicitors provide the advice and support your business needs to remain legally compliant, protecting your organisation and your bottom line.

Post-termination restrictions and confidentiality_

Restrictive covenants place post-termination restrictions on employees that prevent them from undertaking certain activities once they have left your business. Typically imposed on senior employees, and those with access to sensitive information or relationships, restrictive covenants may not be upheld by the courts unless carefully drafted.

At Beswicks Legal we help to protect your commercial interests ensuring that the restrictive covenants placed on your employees are both ‘legitimate’ and ‘reasonable’.
We also support and represent you if you believe an employee has breached a post-termination restriction placed on them and protect you against breaches by employees.

Director, shareholder and professional partnership/LLP disputes_

Shareholder and internal company disputes can be damaging to everyone involved. With disagreements often leading to the dissolution of a company, or certain parties having to leave the business, it is vital to minimise the risk and impact of any disputes as quickly as possible.

From negotiation to litigation, at Beswicks Legal we provide expert, practical, commercially sensitive legal advice and support to protect your business and your investment.

With prevention better than cure, we also work with you to help ensure the necessary agreements and structures are in place to prevent such disputes from occurring in the first place.

Employment tribunal representation_

Even with the very best employment procedures and processes in place, disputes do still happen.

While, at Beswicks Legal, we do everything we can to reduce the impact of such disputes, sometimes an employment tribunal is unavoidable.

If one of your employees has decided to pursue an employment tribunal claim against your business, we have the expertise and skills needed to successfully represent you at the hearing.

We make sure you are aware of the various options available to you; protect your commercial interests at all times and continually reviewing the likely chance of success.

Added Extra_

Consider Your HR Insurance_ for legal costs and tribunals awards that you may unfortunately incur. If you follow our advice but a claim is still pursued, you will be protected.
