Continuing the pursuit of excellence – Wards Solicitors’ employment team join specialist organisation

  • 1st Nov 2017

Wards Solicitors’ specialist employment lawyers – both for business and personal matters – are all now members of the Employment Lawyers Association (ELA) dedicated to promoting best practice in this fast moving and constantly changing area of the law.

The ELA’s 6,000 members are drawn from every branch of the legal profession and include solicitors and barristers acting for both employers and employees, trade unions, the voluntary sector, industry and the judiciary.

Day to day help for employers

Two members of our commercial team, Partner Bridget Juckes and Solicitor Associate Joanne Turner can provide all the advice you need to help ensure you fulfil your legal obligations as an employer including comprehensive advice on how to protect your business in its day to day running.

If things go wrong

And if things go wrong, Partner James Taylor and Solicitor Associate James Murray can offer help and advice on all aspects of dispute resolution.

Quick and effective advice for employees

For private clients, Solicitor Associate Emma Kerry and Solicitor Claire James, as well as James Taylor and James Murray , are here to give fast, effective, level-headed employment advice when it comes to employee problems and how to solve an issue with your employer as quickly as possible.
