Our team of specialist employment lawyers has an outstanding reputation in the market place.

Our lawyers make themselves aware of the key business concerns both for the client’s business and their industry sector, and internal political pressures and constraints.

Our awareness of this and the regulatory regime in which clients operate means that we provide robust risk assessments with a strong focus on finding practical solutions. We ensure that we relate employment law advice to the HR agenda. The employment team at Fox Williams is at the forefront of HR issues, providing thought leadership and innovative lawyering through its suite of HRLaw information and training services.

Our clients include financial institutions, major industrial companies, regulatory and professional bodies, professional firms and family-owned businesses. We are retained by a number of UK and international law firms to advise on their internal HR-related issues, as well as to provide specialist employment law advice to their clients.
