Philip Landau- employment law solicitor

Philip Landau and the employment team at Landau Law are one of the best known specialist employment law solicitors, acting only for UK employees, senior executives and high profile individuals. Our regular contribution as experts in the media is testimony to our recognition as leading specialists. This includes the BBC, The Guardian, Sky News, LBC News Radio, ITN, Radio 4, Radio London, Channel 4, Talk Radio, The Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, The Sunday Times, The Independent, and The Telegraph.

In fact, we are practically the only law firm in the UK which acts solely for individuals in the field of employment law. This distinguishes us from the more general firms, where other areas of law are also carried out or where firms act for employers.

Our website is also one of the UK’s most comprehensive and visited sites about your employment law rights- in easy to understand language. This is up to date as at 2020.

We have collectively acted for more than 25,000 individuals over 20 years. Most importantly, we have a very high success rate in negotiating favourable settlements with employers. A mutually acceptable (and amicable) agreement is, after all, the preference of most employees- and employers too. Such a solution cannot be achieved without a sensible dialogue with employers, and we have years of expertise in engaging with employers, day in and day out. Where a settlement has not been possible, we have a high success track record of winning cases at the employment tribunal.

We are truly a national firm of employment law solicitors. Our clients range from City employees and high profile executives in “blue-chip” companies, to those working at all levels of employment in smaller and medium sized businesses (or public authorities). This covers most job sectors throughout the UK, and includes banking/ financial services, technology and sales, telecoms, the media industry, retail, construction, the legal and accounting industry, medical profession, entertainment, and education. We have also acted for well known personalities and high ranking Civil Service officials, CFO’s, COO’s and CEO’s of major UK companies. We have in addition,successfully taken group claims to tribunal.

If you are accessing this site, then you are likely to have an employment issue which needs swiftly resolving. This may include issues relating to bullying, redundancy, discrimination, constructive dismissal, unfair dismissal, disciplinary, gross misconduct, performance improvement plan, stress at work, bonus dispute, restrictive covenants, whistleblowing, sexual harassment, or a settlement agreement.

Whatever the nature of the issues you are facing, we understand and sympathise with the very difficult situation clients are in (emotional and otherwise), and we will address appropriate solutions right at the outset.

We are prepared to consider a no win- no fee funding arrangement.
