We always take a commercial approach to employment law advice, helping you to achieve your business objective in the most cost effective way. Recognising that businesses need practical solutions rather than legal analysis, we work with you to reach the desired outcome swiftly and with the minimum of fuss.

Collaborative working – in partnership with you

Whatever the level of HR expertise in-house, our specialist employment solicitors can help you to navigate safely through individual cases, projects, trade union negotiations and strategic change programmes to secure successful outcomes that retain the engagement of your staff and represent the best value.

We partner with a range of excellent, known Associates, in particular senior HR professionals, with whom we can further enhance the seamless service to our clients with complementary skills and knowledge.

Expert advice

Advice is provided by highly experienced advisers with an excellent track record, delivered in a friendly and accessible way.  

When you need it

We pride ourselves on providing a very agile service, with quick response times to emails and telephone calls.  We are also prepared to go the extra mile, and will work out of hours when the urgency of a situation demands it, or when you need onsite advice or support.

Value for money

Patch Law’s rates are highly competitive, and this is achieved by a business model of low overheads with no compromise on quality.

Support packages to suit you, not us

Choose the level, quantity and mix of support to suit your needs and budget. Our services are bespoke to each client.  There is no fixed package or even a limited menu to choose from.  We will genuinely tailor each contract individually.

Try us out

Engage us for a single project or piece of advice or for a limited period before you decide on longer term plans.  We can offer an on-site surgery to advise on your current HR priorities.

Annual retainers for HR/legal advisory services work very well for many.  They enable a relaxed, trusting and informed relationship to develop.  We are able to build a deeper understanding of our clients’ organisations, their aims and how they like to do things.

Day to day people support

Whether it’s just a quick email or telephone query or a trickier disciplinary or performance matter that needs unlocking, we can guide you through, including attending meetings and hearings.

Not an anonymous helpline, but named advisers, providing continuity and consistency, offering you the benefit of a blended HR/legal service.

HR Documents

You will be able to access a range of practical documents, forms and templates, with drafting support always provided when needed.

Specific HR projects

E.g. Policy/Contract review and development, redundancies, restructuring.

Settlement Agreements

From advising you when a negotiated exit might be a good option, to drafting and negotiating terms.

Employment Tribunal cases

If this situation arises, you can be assured that you are in safe hands with experienced lawyers both managing the claim and representing you at hearing.


Mentoring 1-2-1 or training teams in people management skills and/or understanding of current legal frameworks, key HR practices or know-how.
