Our Experience

Our team is led by partner Martin Price, a recognised expert in the sports industry with over 30 years’ experience acting for listed companies, owner managed businesses, and senior executives spanning the private, public and third sector.

 

There is little in the employment law space that our employment team have not dealt with.  

Our Approach

We cover all sectors including construction, retail, logistics, professional services, sport, manufacturing, and charities - offering our clients the benefit of our extensive experience providing decisive, pragmatic, innovative strategic advice tailored to their needs.  

 

Working with our clients to understand their objectives, we develop a strategy and fee arrangement to meet those objectives - we do not over engineer solutions. 

 

Our bespoke fee arrangements ensure cost effective solutions, including fixed fee retainers and contingency fees.   

 

We adopt a one team approach, working closely with our colleagues in dispute resolution where the needs of our clients dictate, eg in relation to enforcement of restrictive covenants and shareholder disputes.
