Mulberry’s Employment Law Solicitors is a specialist firm of employment law solicitors, with offices in London and Brighton, offering an exceptionally high level of personal service and expertise to a diverse range of clients.

The firm: Founded in 2007 by Zoe Lagadec, Mulberry’s is a niche practice serving clients based locally, nationally and internationally. The firm advises on all aspects of employment law and is particularly skilled at achieving early resolution in employment disputes for both employee and employer clients.

The firm is highly regarded and advises both employers and individuals on issues including settlement agreements, unfair dismissal, redundancy, sex discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, race discrimination, age discrimination, disability discrimination, harassment, bullying, mediation, employment contracts, redundancy and restructuring. It is also able to advise on all aspects of day-to-day HR and employment law issues, as well as larger projects such as organisational restructures and large-scale redundancies.

As dedicated employment law solicitors, the firm prides itself on its extensive legal knowledge and its ability to deliver high-quality, personal and cost-effective advice to all of its clients. As an ethical practice, it believes in helping employers and employees by maintaining best practice in the work place and advancing labour rights.

The firm is expanding organically and continues to develop its practice, having recently recruited Sophie Clifford, an internationally trained and highly regarded employment law barrister. In the coming months, Mulberry’s intends to open a practice in Tunbridge Wells.

Types of work undertaken: Employees: Mulberry’s undertakes a broad range of work for a diverse and inclusive range of employees and workers, from advising on and negotiating fair terms and conditions to more complex matters, such as settlement agreements, restrictive covenants, employee share and bonus schemes, and director and executive-level service agreements. The firm is proud of its reputation for vigorously pursuing clients’ interests in negotiations and tribunal proceedings.

Mulberry’s is experienced at resolving all employment disputes before they go down the costly route of employment tribunal proceedings. However, if resolution is not possible, the team is fully committed to pursuing cases at the tribunal, where it has an impressive track record of succeeding. The firm has special interest and expertise in unfair dismissal, cases involving bullying and harassment at work, discrimination, whistleblowing and equal pay claims. The firm endeavours to keep costs affordable and can fund cases on the basis of a no-win-no-fee agreement or for a fixed fee.

Employers: Mulberry’s is highly regarded as having both technical expertise and commercial acumen, offering specialist advice with a fast, personal service at a reasonable cost. The firm is aware that many employers, particularly smaller organisations, find employment law a minefield, and is available to guide clients through it.

Mulberry’s offers all new clients a free audit of their employment documentation, advising on the correct employment documentation and advising of any legal changes. The firm is also experienced at reorganisations and restructurings in compliance with legal obligations. Mulberry’s can also advise on how best to resolve difficulty with an employee while avoiding a tribunal claim; or, if necessary, it can advise clients on how best to defend or settle a tribunal claim. The firm offers highly competitive rates and flexible arrangements, including fixed-fee arrangements and regular transparent billing.
