This is a friendly and inclusive team with a strong emphasis on developing its people and providing them with a supportive and challenging working environment.
The Employment and Pensions Group at DAC Beachcroft LLP is over 110 strong with 16 Partners and a presence in London, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Bristol. The Team advises public and private sector employers on human resource issues from daily personnel matters, including disciplinary and grievance issues, to strategic management issues such as redundancy programmes, industrial action, and transfers of employees.
As part of their service, the team also provide management training and consultative advice tailored to the client’s specific needs. The Team is unusual in the breadth and depth of its employment litigation experience: between them they handle over 1000 tribunal cases per year.
