We are an established business that has always handled its HR and Employment issues internally and without any professional help. We did ok, we got by. However, the business was expanding and we soon realised we needed professional help. We had already been dealing with Chadwick Lawrence on employment law issues where we received excellent service and advice (thank you Sarah), but we soon found that the general day to day HR issues and management was also getting too much, so we subscribed to their Virtual HR/BoxHR package. The service, advice and support we received was all excellent from both Lisa and Lynda. Based on my experience I have no hesitation in recommending Chadwick Lawrence for anyone looking to outsource their HR function.

We have been involved with Chadwick Lawrence for many years and have used many of their specialised legal Departments. Over the last few years we have subscribed to their Employment Law Scheme and used it to great effect.
Earlier this year they represented us in case involving one of our employees and the Chadwick Lawrence Associate who handled the case was Jack Oldroyd, who was excellent in all aspects of the work that was required to be undertaken. His attitude to us as clients and his attention to detail was first class.
We would certainly recommend the company for any legal work and we will continue to use them ourselves.

Chadwick Lawrence and Jack Oldroyd are at present dealing with an ongoing employment matter which has resulted in us having to attend several tribunal hearings. During this process we have been provided with a highly professional and informed service.
Jack has ensured that all matters arising in the lead up to and during these tribunals have been dealt with in a correct and efficient manner; this service has been supported by our barrister who was also recommended by Chadwick Lawrence. I would have no qualms in recommending their services to anyone.

Having a dedicated solicitor to advise us is invaluable, and it is great to know that any question or query I have will be responded to promptly, professionally and with our objectives and goals at the heart of the advice.
Premier Vanguard continues to subscribe to Box HR and are extremely pleased with the service received to date. The key factor in the service is direct access to a specialist employment lawyer who now knows a lot about our business and particularly how we operate. We have found this enables us to receive no nonsense advice which is straight to the point and allows us to move matters on quickly and effectively. The training has also been of particular benefit to Premier Vanguard.
I have relied on Daniel Krigers employment law expertise for several years, and have the utmost confidence in him as one of the leading employment lawyers in the North of England. Daniel, and the rest of the team at Chadwick Lawrence take time to understand our business needs and provide clear, user-friendly advice on many aspects of employment law, including complex TUPE situations.

Chadwick Lawrence has proven to be one of my shrewdest signings! They have delivered an outstanding service and that’s why I let Chadwick Lawrence tackle our HR and Health & Safety
Kutchenhaus are a repeat subscriber to the employment scheme and we faced our first Employment Tribunal claim in a number of years in late 2013. Having followed the advice given as part of the subscription service, we felt confident in our defence. The claims were ultimately dismissed and our legal fees were covered under the policy which accompanies the scheme. The seamless approach and the knowledge and skills of our advisors is a significant benefit to us.
Your support is very much appreciated; just think you are like the 4th emergency service. Feel very safe knowing that our legal matters are looked after by the pros.
We have partnered Chadwick Lawrence exclusively since 2008 and have truly benefited from having a specialist team acting as a strong guide through the ever changing maze of legal matters and beyond.
For us, having a team of dedicated specialists who have been able to advise and assist us a large local employer has been a key priority, and something we have retained in spite of huge budget cuts and a funding crisis.
They have devoted time and interest to the college and truly understand our mission, they understand us. They are of course privy to highly confidential information, and would be consulted on to identify solutions relating to staff, often this can be in an emergency situation. Their response to crisis is always measured, methodical and solution focused.
In short, the company and the team that lead the provision are an example of excellence.
We are very pleased with the Box HR service to date. It makes a refreshing change to receive advice on complex matters such as employment law which is straight to the point and delivered with confidence and authority. It is clear that specialist employment lawyers are equipped to put their neck on the line, rather than sitting on the fence as we have often experienced in the past with legal matters.
The team at Chadwick Lawrence provides comprehensive, consultative support to our existing HR department which is focussed on our needs, objectives, and the commercial context to the issues we face. Their assistance in both day-to-day employment matters and in defending litigation has been invaluable to the growth and continued success of the business.
In my career as a HR professional I have worked with a number of companies providing legal support and I must say that Chadwick Lawrence have been by far the best. The advice is not only commercially focussed but robust, practical and clear.
The responsiveness of the Partner I deal with is second to none, I never have to wait long for advice and I feel confident and reassured knowing that I can run something past them and it is legally sound. The team are true professionals and I look forward to our continued work with them.
Cutwel were the first subscribers to the employment scheme and, since that time, our trusted advisors have come to understand all aspects of our business. We cannot imagine leaving the scheme given the level of support we receive and the quality of service provided. We encourage all businesses to contact Chadwick Lawrence for all employment law, health and safety, HR and training requirements as their whole service is essential to the fast pace of business life and full protection is vital to survival.
We used Chadwick Lawrence’s employment services prior to them introducing Box HR but we subscribed to the scheme in the first year and have had no hesitation in renewing for a number years. The specialist solicitor allocated to Crossway Scaffolding is always on hand to provide us with advice and specifically to guide us through complex employment matters such as disciplinaries when they occur from time to time. Ongoing assistance such as this is invaluable to busy managers and gives them confidence to progress complex matters to an effective conclusion.
The Community of the Resurrection has become busier in recent years, and without a dedicated HR department the complexities of staffing and HR issues have grown. We have worked with Chadwick Lawrence for 18 months and already their team have guided us through a number of unusual situations! From reviewing our procedures and documentation, to giving advice on training, management techniques and best practice – the support is always prompt, clearly set out and thorough. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any organisation, large or small.
A professional firm who deliver a first class, speedy service and are a pleasure to work. Joining the Box HR scheme has proved to be invaluable to our business.
We signed up to Box HR in 2014. The scheme provided comprehensive consultative support to our HR department, assisting in updating staff policies, handbooks and contracts of employment, to name but a few. The workshops that were included during this period were both informative and helpful. We are definitely grateful to Sam Pawson for all his invaluable advice and quick responses to varied and sometimes extraordinary requests over the past months.
We would definitely recommend Box HR to companies who require that extra assistance by an extremely helpful team
As an existing client of the Firm in other areas of legal compliance, we engaged Box HR on an ad hoc basis in late 2012. Following a very successful and short lead-in period, we decided to take up subscription to the employment scheme in 2013. Our advisors are always on hand quickly to give us assistance with any employment issues and the peace of mind this offers to us is invaluable. The wider support given by Box HR to the business community through its seminar series is also extremely beneficial to us, as we do not have a dedicated HR department.
We have worked with Sam Pawson on a variety of employment matters and the advice offered has been clear and concise. He has a good understanding of commercial realities as well as excellent legal knowledge.
We have used Peter Harling in the dispute resolution team at Chadwick Lawrence for advice on a number of occasions and also to assist in the recovery of debt through the courts. He has provided clear and helpful guidance in a timely manner, assisting us through the process to a satisfactory conclusion.
Thank you so much for your help and response. Its very clear what needs to happen next and you have answered all future questions and concerns.
Brilliant service. Thank you so much.
Employment Law Support
Unlimited day-to-day employment law support, delivered by lawyers
Our employment law support has been delivered to hundreds of businesses across the region and nationally for nearly 15 years. We have an incredibly loyal client base and are trusted to provide commercial, decisive advice. And we know how important it is to deliver exceptional service on time to you and your business.
We also appreciate that every business is unique. Our support allows you to pay for just what you need, and is adaptable over time as your objectives change.
Virtual HR Department
Need a presence on site with support in the background?
For various reasons, many businesses operate without a dedicated HR department. This could be because the overhead is not justifiable given the size of the business, or managers may be more empowered to deliver personnel management directly within their teams.
Our flexible support provides human resources management in whatever way you need it. We can be your administrators in the background, we can run processes on site – it’s all about supporting your business and your individual needs.
Cloud-based portal to manage and administrate your staff
Underpinning the advice we give is award-winning software, delivered in partnership with Breathe HR. The cloud-based application is exceptionally user-friendly and allows you centralise employee data, manage holiday requests, allow employee access with self-service functionality, monitor and manage sickness absence, generate reports and much more.
The software offers a flexible, secure and reliable way to manage, advocate for, and communicate with your people. It’s the perfect solution for keeping on top of the day-to-day, and for maximising employee engagement. The software provides the rich data you need to inform your strategic decisions, nip any problems in the bud, and realise every potential. Planning and consistency couldn’t get any better.
Legal Expenses Insurance
Protect your business against the cost of defending claims
Taking up our support can protect your business as far as possible in preventing claims from your employees. Where litigation is commenced, though, we offer an insurance product which adds peace of mind for your business by protecting against the defence costs and awards of settlement or damages.
The abolition of fees in the Employment Tribunal has resulted in an almost immediate increase in the number of claims issued. The Tribunal regime can be attractive to claimants in circumstances where there is little financial risk to starting a claim; taking out our support and insurance helps you to fight back.
Employment Tribunal Support
Commercially focussed, robust support when you’re on the ropes
Protecting your business extends to circumstances where your business faces an Employment Tribunal claim. Disputes can be a significant concern, but we pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive, commercially focussed service.
No matter what the dispute is, we use our expertise and resources to represent you in the best way possible. We take control of your claim at the outset, leaving you to concentrate on your business priorities.
Our approach considers not only the merits of your defence, but also the commercial context to the situation, and the outcome that is in the best interests of your business. Such is the range of employers we act for, we appreciate that the objectives can vary greatly, particularly taking into account cost, time, personnel and commercial sensitivities.
We’ve got the knowledge – build a tailored programme or choose a one-off module
We are proud of our close association with the local business communities in the areas we operate and, as part of this, we always have seminars and training on the go. We deliver presentations to individual clients on and off-site, to business contacts centrally at our offices, in partnership with other organisations and to trade associations and professional groups.
If your people need training in an area of employment law or human resources management, we can help. You might want a one-off presentation to all of your staff or you may want a structured programme for a group of managers; our aim is to be as flexible as possible in meeting your needs.
We’re here when you need us for ad hoc support or project
Our fixed employment law support isn’t for everyone; you might just have a one-off issue that you need some help with, or you might simply want to bend our ear from time to time. We are happy to support you whenever you need us.
It is important to ensure that the decisions you are making are underpinned by expert advice. Free resources can only go so far in informing your choices and unforeseen risks may be brought to the surface further down the line.
Don’t take a chance; get in touch and let us protect your business.
