Senior Legal Team



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.

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.

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.
