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.
We understand that employers require a stable, loyal and skilled workforce in order to help their businesses grow. We can help employers achieve this, by dealing with their employment and HR issues.
Our aim is to carefully guide you through your options to achieve the best possible outcome for you, whether this is bringing a tribunal claim for discrimination against your employer, challenging a bonus award or negotiating an early settlement.
