For Employers

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.

Unlike an HR consultancy all advice provided by Patch Law is covered by what is known as “legal advice privilege” which means it is confidential and does not have to be disclosed, even in court or tribunal proceedings.

A growing number of businesses are taking advantage of Patch Law’s Retainer Service, where for an agreed period (it doesn’t have to be a year), an experienced specialist solicitor is on hand to answer any day-to-day queries, update contracts and handbooks, draft letters, help you manage challenges such as redundancies or disciplinaries, and to firefight, including defending Tribunal claims if necessary.  The main advantage though is an opportunity to get to know your business, helping you identify people management priorities and nip potential staff problems in the bud.

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.

Two Businesswomen Shaking Hands In Modern Office

Expert advice

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

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.

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.

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.

Retainers for HR/legal advisory services work very well for many.  As well as representing the very best value for money, 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.

Our range of services

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.

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.

HR Projects

We are often asked to review and update contracts of employment, handbooks and policies and to support with HR challenges such as redundancies, restructuring and performance management.

Settlement Agreements

We will provide seamless advice and support, from advising you when a negotiated exit might be a good option, to drafting the agreement and conducting negotiations with the employee or their representative.

HR Documents

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

Training

Our offering is tailored to each client, examples include:

  • mentoring 1-2-1
  • training teams in people management skills
  • updates on current legal frameworks.

Diverse People and Training Concepts

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.

To find out more about how we can support your organisation, contact us today for a no obligation free of charge initial discussion.
