Employment

Markel Law offers an outstanding, full-service employment practice across a complete range of contentious and non-contentious services within a tripartite structure.

Our team has built an excellent reputation over more than 20 years for providing competitive legal service packages to trade associations and their members. We can service employment matters of any level of complexity, from telephone queries about pay and maternity rights, through to advising on exiting senior executives and preparing settlement agreements, to complex multi-party discrimination complaints in the Employment Tribunal and beyond, including the Employment Appeal Tribunal and Court of Appeal.

We serve businesses, high-net-worth individuals and associations across a broad spectrum of industries, and, unusually, cover employment cases across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, offering a true UK-wide service.

Disciplines

Employment issues are dealt with from inception to conclusion through three separate teams: an employment disputes team, an employment consultancy team and an employment legal advice team.

Testimonials

Sourced from Legal 500, 2022
"The team are very keen to make things work for me by, for example, arranging their bills to coincide with my budgets and forecasting. As I have been working with the same individuals for several years now, they understand my organisation and make advisory suggestions based on their knowledge of how we operate. There has been no detriment in service at all during lockdown."

"The team at Markel have been a stable and constant support to our business for many years. The reason we have not sought alternative legal support is because we have people outside of the business who know our company inside and out, which really helps. I feel like I’m talking to someone who knows me and the company, which I feel is invaluable."

"The team at Markel managed to blend the handling of a very difficult and complex legal matter with the human and caring touch."

"The team at Markel Law were unlike any experience I have had with a legal practice before. Quite simply they took the time to not only understand my case with great sensitivity, but also to realise the psychological impact the case had on me and responded accordingly. Their support enabled me to keep to focus on what mattered – with an empathy that must be commended. They explained everything in a way that was easily understandable and removed what could have been a very intimidating set of processes. It is hard to imagine a better service from a legal practice."
