Customer Testimonials

I have been using Reculver Solicitors on and off for over 10 years now, both from a personal perspective and for business employment law advice. James Carmody is always the consummate professional and to my mind is a superb solicitor. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.


Carol was very helpful in our initial discussions and once instructed was clear in what changes she was suggesting, the reasons for them and the risks if they were not accepted.
While I hope not to require Reculver's services again (as an employee going through redundancy) I would recommend them to anyone who does find themselves in that situation


James and his team were there for me from day one, and I think that is what sets them apart from other firms. I was constantly informed of what I could do and at every step of the process I felt I was taking the right decision thanks to James' excellent advice. I would thoroughly recommend Reculver Solicitors for any employment law issue.

The discrimination may be direct, or may be indirect by applying a provision, criterion or practice which puts a greater proportion of people with a certain Protected Characteristic at a disadvantage as compared to another group without that characteristic. A classic example is denying a woman returning from maternity leave the opportunity to return on a part time basis without reasonable justification. This is a complicated area and it can make all the difference if you get legal advice on your situation.


If you are looking for someone to recommend a good employment solicitor, you may find it helpful to read just some of the positive feedback and recommendations from some of our recent clients.

We are a specialist firm of employment law solicitors based in Central London (Holborn WC1, just by Chancery Lane tube) As employment law solicitors we have given advice to many organisations help them resolve difficult problems using Settlement Agreements (also known as 'redundancy agreements' and 'severance agreements'). Call us today on 0207 118 0950 for a meeting. Without a compromise agreement, you cannot settle statutory claims arising from employment or its termination. Offers 'in full and final settlement' will not be sufficient.


We are Redundancy Solicitors advising on this tricky subject. Employers often get the redundancy process wrong, exposing themselves to unnecessary claims. We will work with you with a view to achieving a good result for you. Call today for a free initial chat with an Employment Solicitor on 0207 118 0950. See our Redundancy Calculator. The employer should first of all consider the 'pool' of employees who they may wish to make redundant. Nb: The employer should not tailor the pool of potential redundancies to encompass the individuals the employer has already decided should be made redundant.
