Watson Burton Top Choice for Employment Law; ADVERTISEMENT FEATURE


WATSON Burton's impressive team of employment law specialists is one of the largest and most experienced in the north of England.

Their clear, commercial, pragmatic solutions to the most complex employment-related problems have attracted many leading national organisations as clients.

Every client receives personal attention from the team at a senior level. Chris Graham, who leads Watson Burton's employment law group, said: "The challenge of our work is exciting. We aim to make a genuine difference to each client, talking through issues to provide sound, independent advice. We also deal with problems before they arise rather than trying to pick up the pieces afterwards.

TRUSTED ADVISERS "As a result our lawyers are trusted business advisers able to help you fight your corner rather than simply suppliers of legal expertise."

The success of this approach ensures that the team adds value to commercial organisations from a wide range of sectors both locally and nationwide. They have saved clients valuable time and money, won top-tier ranking in national directories and brought major national work back to the region.

Described by the Legal 500 as responsive and extremely commercial, the employment team includes expertise in Employment Tribunal litigation, injunctions, industrial action, redundancies, discrimination and transfer of undertakings (TUPE).

Clients include leading UK companies such as Atkins plc, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, Parsons Brinckerhoff, eaga plc, Toshiba, Cape plc and International Paint alongside regional organisations including Whessoe Oil and Gas, Rainton Construction, MGL Demolition and Northumbria University.

FIRST CHOICE FOR ATKINS Watson Burton is the sole legal adviser for employment issues to Atkins plc, the UK's largest engineering consultancy. Epsom-based Atkins employs around 15,000 staff in the UK, Middle East, USA, China, Hong Kong and Europe. Watson Burton has worked with Atkins for over six years.

Anne Randall, head of group legal for Atkins, says: "Watson Burton is our first choice for employment legal services. Their strategic advice and expertise in project management of major contracts is hugely valuable."

NDA WIN The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, which is overseeing a pounds 70bn decommissioning and nuclear waste clean-up programme, has recently chosen Watson Burton to provide UK-wide employment advice against strong national competition from London and the regions. Rob Higgins, head of legal at NDA, said: "Watson Burton's exceptional expertise in complex employment law shone through from the outset.

"The astute, proactive approach of Chris Graham and his team is an important asset for our organisation."

ADVOCACY Watson Burton is particularly strong on in-house advocacy, through which the firm provides a seamless transition for the client from case preparation to hearing with a single contact. It has an excellent track record at tribunal hearings and managing disputes effectively for employers. …
