We advise on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment and human resources legal issues for both employers and employees.
Through our worldwide network we work with employers to ensure that they have the procedures and paperwork in place to avoid tribunal and court cases, to seek to resolve issues that arise as early as possible, to evaluate options, advise on the best course of action and if necessary to strongly defend any claims. We also advise and represent employees, directors and consultants on a wide range of issues.
Employment related work that we handle includes:
– Bonuses and benefit structures, including share schemes;
– Business transfers or service provision changes (TUPE);
– Compromise agreements;
– Disciplinary procedures;
– Discrimination and harassment;
– Employment agencies;
– Employment contracts and policy documents;
– Employment tribunals;
– Executive appointments;
– Freelance and consultancy contracts;
– Managed service companies;
– Restrictive covenants and confidentiality obligations;
– Sickness absence and work related stress; and
– Termination packages.

Matt Moorton did a fantastic job tightening up our staff contracts and handbook to improve our confidentiality and intellectual property clauses. The language used in our new social media policy and the introductory letter struck the perfect balance of being both firm yet friendly.
Can't recommend this team highly enough. Very straightforward and approachable, Kent Reynolds and Sarah Lungley sorted our dispute with an ex-employee with great efficiency and a pragmatic approach. I will definitely return to this firm in the future.
Great service by The Jonathan Lea Network. Simon Brooks was exceptional in his professionalism and the quality of work. We will be using them for our business legal needs from now on. Highly recommend for business legal requirements.
The entire team at The Jonathan Lea Network are excellent. Super efficient, knowledgeable and great to work with. I worked with Simon most closely, who made our EIS Assurance an easy process, ensuring every detail was taken care of. Would highly recommend the team to anyone.
We worked closely with Andreea Rusu on a SEIS/EIS advanced assurance application for our film production company. These are very hard to get and we had previously failed to obtain it using another company, so we approached The Jonathan Lea Network as they specialise in this field.With Andreea’s excellent professional guidance and advice she managed to turn it around and secure the advanced assurance for us in quick time.We highly recommend The Jonathan Lea Network and particularly Andreea – a joy to work with, very professional and swift service and good value for money. 10/10 from us!
