For Employees

Do you need advice on a Settlement Agreement?

Are you facing difficulties at work?

Have you already been dismissed or looking for a way out?

We advise employees from all walks of life who need advice while still in their job or who have already been dismissed for any of a number of reasons – both lawful and unlawful.

You need clear advice on your situation and your options for dealing with it. At Patch Law we pride ourselves on providing an empathetic and expert service to do just that. Whilst we cannot offer free advice, Patch Law aims to offer as affordable a service as possible so that you can access the advice you need swiftly. This prompt attention is often crucial to meet the tight time limits for employment matters but also helps to alleviate the inevitable anxiety you are likely to be feeling.

Our commitment is that every client will receive customer service that is second to none – including out of hours telephone appointments if required - and you will not need to be ‘chasing’.


I found Gillian very knowledgeable, transparent and incredibly talented in identifying potential issues.
Dealing with Gillian felt like a friend trying to genuinely help me rather than a solicitor undertaking a business case.
 Thank you, Gillian and team, for making the process seamless and rather painless.

Unlike some employment law firms, Patch Law does not focus purely on executives when taking on new employee clients, believing that everyone - whatever their status in an organisation’s hierarchy - is entitled to access high quality and honest advice to resolve their difficulty. Patch Law’s employee clients range from gardeners, cleaners and care workers through to professionals, senior directors and CEOs.

If it is necessary to apply to the Employment Tribunal to resolve your complaint, it is worth checking whether you are covered by legal expenses insurance – often an add-on to your household insurance policy – and Patch Law can then represent you at no cost to you.

For immediate employment law advice please either call us on 0117 290 0905 or complete a Free Online Enquiry and we will soon be in touch with you..

I’ve not much experience elsewhere of dealing with legal firms, but I have no hesitation in recommending both Gillian and Amanda unreservedly, both in terms of legal advice but also emotional support through what can be very traumatic processes.

Our commitments to you:

  • Give you clear and practical jargon-free advice on what to do
  • Give an honest, realistic assessment of your situation and case
  • Offer you high levels of customer service
  • Help to protect your interests and ensure you are properly compensated when things go wrong in your workplace
  • Act swiftly and efficiently and resolve matters for you in the most cost-effective way

Advice at your convenience…

You may prefer a face-to-face meeting, or (due to a number of factors, including time pressure, childcare, distance) would rather opt for communications by email and telephone. Either way, we can offer appointments and consultations to suit your needs and schedule.

Client meetings can be arranged at our meeting rooms near Kingswood or in Westbury-on-Trym, or, if you would prefer the convenience of dealing with your whole matter through our responsive and flexible telephone and email advice service, then this can also be arranged. 

This option is particular popular for advice on Settlement Agreements and for our Discounted Fixed Cost Initial Advice service. We can also offer video or audio calls by Skype/WhatsApp or similar, if that is your preference.

We can advise you on the whole range of work-related issues


A very positive experience during a difficult time, putting back a sense of control through the support provided. In simple terms Patch Law provides an excellent service combining the professionalism of a large law practice with the personal touch of a small owner led business. I would be delighted to recommend Patch Law and Gillian whether an individual or a business. Thank you!

review rating 5  I found both Gillian and Alex from Patch Law a joy to work with. The service provided by both was timely and professional, with Gillian spending a lot of time explaining to me the meaning of various clauses of a legal document requiring my signature. I would not hesitate in using Patch Law again and would recommend their service to others wholeheartedly.
