The specialist employment team at JMW in London is highly experienced in dealing with all aspects of the most challenging employment law issues.
We are experts in dealing with complex HR queries for businesses and organisations, from fast-growth companies to established multi-nationals and PLCs. We provide strategic thinking, informed by our in-depth knowledge of employment law, in a way that focuses on our client’s organisational goals and priorities. Our expertise includes running strategic change-management projects, managing tricky employee-relations cases, and achieving difficult employee exits, in a way that minimises business disruption.

The team has been commended for having impressive negotiators who are focused on achieving the best possible outcome for the client.
