Supporting clients, other law firms, and in-house employment teams

Where there is a conflict of interest or it is simply not cost effective for larger firms to advise on compromise agreements, tribunal litigation or due diligence, Square One Law is available to act for them or their clients.

This is particular relevant to city or US-based firms. As we are not competing in the same marketplace, law firms are able to confidently approach us and utilise our expertise and experience.

Typical areas where advice might be required include:

  • employment tribunal litigation
  • corporate support and employment related due diligence
  • providing independent advice to conflicted senior executives
  • advice on individual and group settlement agreements

We have instructed Eleanor for several years and we have found her to be an invaluable help to our business given the exceptionally clear and concise advice that she has provided us with on a range of issues – cutting through the potential minefield of employment law and saving us a huge amount of management time.

Matt Smith, Black Tomato


We always deliver a high quality of service to all our clients. We believe thats why our clients love to work with us.
