What clients say..

"

Thank you so much for all your help you are without doubt a legend and will get my recomendation to anyone who might need your advice

"

what clients say

"I now feel that I have suit of armour around me, which has been provided by the letter you wrote on my behalf. It made be actually feel good (for the first time in a long time) knowing I was supported in my quest to get justice. My wife had read the letter and agreed with me that it said all the things we wanted to say. Many thanks for your support."

what clients say

"Thanks to Shazia Khan and her team at Bindmans for helping to successfully resolve matters..."

what clients say

"I honestly cannot find words to thank you enough Emilie. xxxxxxx put me through a distressing and rather humiliating experience, but with your help it was turned into something positive. I do believe that without you, it is likely I would have ended up in hospital again with another mental breakdown as the episode would have just eaten away at me in a very self-destructive way. Please know that you have done a lot for me than just arranging a compromise agreement. Much more importantly, you have helped give me back my confidence in myself as a worthwhile academic which was really shot to pieces from my first breakdown in 2007 onwards. To have that self-worth back is a priceless gift."

what clients say

"On my behalf, Bindmans' Employment team has not only achieved a generous financial compensation package, but has also restored my very battered pride."

what clients say

"Excellent negotiators."

what clients say

"I would advise anyone with an employment dispute to use Bindmans. Without their help, I would have been bullied into submission by my former employer."

what clients say

"Great! Thanks a million!"

what clients say

"I would like to commend Emilie's performance on the case, as she was extremely focussed and diligent in her work and made sure that I understood my rights throughout the whole process offering professional advice to ensure that I was adequately covered in the resulting compromise agreement."

what clients say

"I totally agree with the plan. I hope we will succeed with your outstanding professional approach. "

what clients say

"Emilie was able to cite relevant legal cases and Acts of Parliament to emphasise key references to strengthen my case. Emilie made sure that I understood my options throughout the case and was very thorough in reviewing the compromise agreement with me. Emilie was confident and effective in her handling of the case and I felt that we made a good team which ultimately lead to a satisfactory conclusion. I feel that I was represented by a solicitor with excellent professional skills and I would not hesitate to recommend Emilie to friends, colleagues and future clients."

what clients say

"Shah – very helpful. Thanks for clarification."

what clients say

"Thank you again for your efforts and support, you have been remarkably professional and reachable each time. To be honest, I do not know how to thank you."

what clients say

"Best wishes and thank you Shah - You have certainly seen me through and importantly, expertly guided and advised me, through my most traumatic professional experience in my life."

what clients say

"I really appreciate that you took the time to respond and I have extended my thanks to Miss Khan. That you took the time to respond has made me feel better. I feel more confident having spoken to Miss Khan and whatever the outcome in the future for me, knowing that I do have right on my side somehow validates my experience. Thank you again and I wish you well."

what clients say

"As a client of Bindmans I can honestly state that the service provided was superior and focused on ‘ME’ the client. Bindmans Lawyers give a personal service which is needed at a very stressful time. They listened and acted on what I needed. I would certainly recommend Bindmans as a 1st choice for all employment challenges. Thank you Bindmans."

what clients say

"My case included complex legal issues. I am indebted to the brilliance of Shah Qureshi and Nick Fry of Bindmans LLP and my barrister for their guidance support and expertise over the last two years."

what clients say

"Thank you for such an excellent service"

what clients say

"I would like to take this opportunity to express my words of thanks to you for working so hard on my case which, in my view, could only have lead to its success. Thank you very much for being very professional when dealing with my legal matter and very patient with me. I will keep recommending you as a highly qualified and skilled solicitor with unique personal skills when caring for the clients. Your commitment and dedication were outstanding! Thank you Nick very much! "

what clients say

"My sincere thanks to the Bindmans team. You have taken a rather negative situation and turned it around so it is no longer a source of stress, and for that I am very grateful. "

what clients say

"I would like to firstly thank you for taking on my case and helping me through the process to its conclusion. You obviously worked very hard and offered sound advice throughout. In addition I found you pleasant, courteous and knowledgeable. I am happy with the outcome. It is a moral victory and gives me a good foundation to make my life a bigger success than what it was under their restraint and hostility. I stood up for myself when I had to and was sensible when I needed to be. I feel a thousand times better in myself and sleep a lot more easily. There is still a challenge ahead, but one I have a lot more control of. I feel that without your contribution I probably wouldn’t be where I am now, moving forward and not looking back. So once again thank you for your patience, diligence, efforts and support, it was very much appreciated. Would you pass on my appreciation to the whole team especially Sarah who also assisted me through the process with kind support. Emilie I wish you continued success and happiness."

what clients say

Employment law is complex and fast-moving, subject to frequent amendment from government legislation and case law.  Workplace disputes involve people who have often worked together for many years and disputes, when they arise, are emotionally damaging for all concerned and a barrier to the smooth running of any organisation.  Our approach is to apply our expertise and experience while at the same time recognising that no two cases are the same and each has their own particular facets.

We advise employer clients on matters such as ongoing HR issues, anticipating or defending Tribunal claims and the drafting, consultation and implementation of policies. 

We advise employees with workplace disputes ranging from unfair and wrongful dismissal to complex questions in developing areas of law. 

We also specialise in advising clients in the background to complex and delicate negotiations, enabling them to make their own representations safe in the knowledge their legal position is protected should negotiations break down.

For whomever we act, we strive to resolve disputes in the best interests of our clients as fairly and quickly as possible.  Long drawn out procedures are rarely, if ever, in anyone’s best interests and we will always aim to identify a settlement opportunity or scope for negotiated resolution.  Our team includes accredited mediators and accomplished negotiators. 

Where negotiated resolution is not possible we act robustly on our clients' behalf to achieve the best possible outcome in litigation.  Our record in Court and Tribunal is one which we believe compares favourably to any other firm, and our nomination as Employment Law Department of the Year 2012 by the Lawyer Magazine is one example of the recognition of this. 

We pride ourselves on keeping up-to-date with the ever-changing nature of employment legislation and on offering high-quality, pragmatic, and cost-effective advice to the high satisfaction of our clients.

 

Our services

We act for both employers and employees which gives us invaluable insight into our opponent’s likely tactics:

Our employment team also has close links with colleagues in our Media, Immigration, Human rights and public law departments. We can call on their additional expertise when needed, to provide a seamless service to clients.
