We are regular employment law experts to the media.
Philip Landau and the employment law team at Landau Law are known nationally as specialist and experienced employment law solicitors, acting for employees and senior executives throughout the UK. The entire focus and specialisation of the firm is in employment law – we are not a bolt on team in a firm where other areas of law are also practised.
In fact, we are one of the very few legal firms in the UK that specialises in employment law for individuals, and our website is one of the leading resources of information about your rights.
We are regularly called upon as expert solicitors on employment law for radio, television, national newspapers, financial and legal websites, and conferences. This includes being asked to appear on Sky News, BBC News, Radio 4 and LBC News Radio. In addition, Philip Landau writes for The Guardian as their employment law expert.
We have also been quoted and endorsed by ACAS in relation to our legal blogs.
We have collectively acted for more than 15,000 employees over 17 years in this specialised field, and most importantly, we have a very high success rate in negotiating favourable settlements with employers. An acceptable (and where possible amicable) departure from your employer is, after all, the preference of most employees- and employers too. This cannot be achieved without appropriate sensitivity and strategy, which comes from years of engaging with employers- day in and day out.
In most cases, we are able to settle a dispute without the necessity of issuing tribunal proceedings. If proceedings do become necessary, we will still attempt to pursue a resolution with your employer at the same time as moving your case forward.
We are based in the heart of London very close to Tower Hill and Liverpool Street tube stations (with the Tower of London on our doorstep). We act for many City employees and executives, but this is by no means exclusive. We are a truly national employment law firm, and our clients range from senior executives with ‘blue-chip’ companies, to employees of smaller and medium sized businesses in most job sectors in the UK. We very frequently receive instructions from clients based in the other major cities of Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and Liverpool, together with other regions of the UK.
A dispute with your employer may arise either at the time of your dismissal or very often whilst you are still in employment (and looking to exit on suitable financial terms). Whether you are facing unfair dismissal, a performance improvement plan, redundancy, discrimination, issues relating to your restrictive covenants, bonuses, contract of employment, bullying and harassment or any other employment law issue, it is all familiar territory for us.
We also regularly provide expert and speedy advice on settlement agreements and non-contentious employment matters, such as advising on the terms contained in your contract of employment.
