Leyton Legal

Founded in 1997, Leyton is Europe’s leading R&D tax credit specialist.

We have 21 offices in 10 countries with expert teams dedicated to maximising our clients’ innovation potential by harnessing the benefits of R&D tax credits, patent box and grant funding. Our success is the result of developing specialist teams that are a mix of highly qualified tax experts and sector specialists who understand the challenges in our clients’ businesses.

The work alongside client companies illustrated another key area that businesses were finding challenging - employment law and to respond to this need Leyton legal was launched in 2015.

Leyton Legal wanted to address the difficulties employers have in finding reliable and professional employment law support. Often, employers can find that HR Consultancies do not give the level of service they require, but then also find that solicitor’s fees can prove too costly for day-to-day support. Leyton Legal seeks to bridge that gap. All of our advisers are qualified solicitors with a wealth of experience in employment law. As an employer client of Leyton Legal, you will be encouraged to call with any issue, however small, so that it can be resolved before it becomes a problem. We will also guide you through employment processes and procedures, and can draft meeting scripts, letters and policies for you as well providing telephone and written advice. In return, you pay us an agreed monthly fee which is based on our assessment of your ongoing employment law requirements. This fee is generally far lower than you would pay for similar advice from a traditional solicitor’s firm. 

Should you require any additional services, Leyton Legal can give you a fixed cost for this, and our prices are reasonable and very competitive. Our services in this respect include Tribunal work, training on all areas of employment law for your staff, project work such as a large redundancy process or TUPE exercise, and drafting and reviewing contracts and handbooks. If you prefer we can include some of this work in your monthly service plan. 

We aim to provide you with complete peace of mind that someone is available to answer any queries you have when you have them, without the fear of escalating legal costs, or feeling that you are being provided with generic advice you could have found yourself. We tailor our advice to your particular situation, and will ensure that we work with you from the start of our relationship to understand your business and the employees you have, whilst also taking into account your preferred outcome in each situation. The result is that clients have the quality of support from legal advisers they can rely on whilst freeing up time and resources for the business.

Legal Team



Ingrid McGhee and the team at Leyton Legal, have provided HR and Employment Law advice to Pipeline Technique for the past 12 months. Through Ingrid having a deep understanding of our business, she has provided us with exceptional support, timely and practical advice on all Employment Law matters. As a small company we have benefitted greatly from the clear and uncomplicated information given alongside practical, workable options. This is always delivered in a professional manner by Ingrid and the rest of the team that has supported us at Leyton Legal.
Ingrid also delivered Employment Law training to our team of senior managers and the delivery and execution was fantastic. The managers really enjoyed the day and the mix of learning activities and information was very well thought out.
I would not hesitate to recommend Leyton Legal as part of your business support.
The team at Leyton’s currently handle all our HR and employment law requirements. I have always found the employment side of running a business the most difficult and have found that it is so important to have consistent, accurate and unbiased advice so the right solution is sought. That is what I always receive from Leyton. Absolute clarity and indisputable knowledge so situations are dealt with and managed in the best way possible. I simply cannot recommend the team highly enough.
— Managing Director, Whitespace Exhibitions Limited
We have used Leyton Legal as our legal HR representative since June 2015 and we have been very impressed by both their approach and their commitment to resolving any issues that have arisen.
From the very start Leyton helped us implement employee contracts and a staff handbook, ensuring that we are meeting all our legal obligations.
Leyton have since been available at any moment when we have needed to call for advice and support.
CPL has grown from 15 to 44 staff and I would recommend Leyton to anyone as I feel they are an integral part of our company’s growth.
— Paul Murphy: Managing Director, Cumberland Platforms Limited
I have, over a number of years, relied on the advice and support of Jill Shearer in a number of situations regarding employees, from quick questions to Tribunal matters. I have always found her to be fast-acting and pragmatic. She will find a solution to any problem and having her advice has meant that my own time in dealing with employee matters has significantly reduced. We want you to know that we appreciate your hard work and look forward to continuing our business relationship.
— Managing Director, Recruitment Agency
James Baird offered fantastic legal and emotional support during my tribunal claim.
He kept me calm and positive during a difficult time with practical and pragmatic advice.
I will be forever thankful for the successful outcome Leyton Legal achieved on my behalf, which has helped me to begin a new chapter in my life.
