Shella's Experience

Shella is retained by a number of her clients under a employment law protection package through which she offers businesses a practical and comprehensive employment law package which is precisely tailored to the size and needs of her client’s business. The package can be tailored to suit the client but typically provides a combination of:

  • Helpline advice when needed by means of direct and regular one to one contact with a dedicated specialist employment solicitor that is familiar with working with the business and its commercial objectives
  • Employment documentation review and redrafting as appropriate to keep up to date with changing legislation
  • Insurance cover to protect the business from having to pay compensation and additional legal fees in the event of an employment law claim

Shella works with her clients to structure a package for a simple monthly or annual fee providing the business with the ability to budget annually for employment law costs while giving peace of mind to the owners that they are handling employment issues and managing employees in an effective way, knowing they always having access to specialist advice when they need it.
