Businesses in need of legal advice on employment law can take advantage of a new, specialist team at Three Counties law firm Harrison Clark.
Harrison Clark, which has offices situated in Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, as well as serviced offices in Birmingham and London, has introduced a new team of experts specialising in employment and human resources law.
The 13-strong team, headed by specialist employment law barrister, Jennifer Jones, is one of the largest specialist employment and HR teams in the Midlands.
With expertise in advising employers across a range of sectors including public and private health and social care, education, local Government, manufacturing, logistics, construction and retail, across all contentious and non-contentious legal topics, the new department expands Harrison Clark’s growing Business Services Department, offering even more specialist legal advice for businesses across the country.
Jennifer Jones, head of Employment and HR, joined Harrison Clark in August 2011 to lead the new team.
As a specialist employment law barrister with over 20 years’ experience, she offers board-level advice to large organisations on workforce and reward strategy, as well as organisational change projects. She also has considerable experience acting for employers in connection with their most complex cases, including discrimination, whistle-blowing and equal pay cases.
The team acts for several large businesses including, public authorities and the NHS and also offers a bespoke HR service, allowing employers to gain additional HR support or to outsource their HR function entirely. A particular specialism of the team includes equal pay.
Ms Jones said: “We are straight-talking and approachable and look to provide solutions, not just identify risks. Acting only for the employer we aim to make complex people management issues as easy as possible to navigate so that employers can get on with the job of running their businesses.”
