Products & Services


As an employer, you will find that employment law is a rapidly changing part of your business landscape. New laws that affect you come into force very frequently. You could be at risk for failure to properly apply employment law, both in direct cost to your business and indirectly in loss of productivity and reduced morale. A successful claim against you can have a dramatic impact on your business and can, in some cases, threaten its existence.

Customer Testimonials

Ian Jones provided a thoroughly knowledgeable and clear explanation of a legal minefield, coupled with a quick resolution in a relaxed manner. Top stuff.

I recently met with Ian Jones to discuss some personal work issues. The offices are easy to find and, important considering the location, free parking wasn't a problem. Ian was very thorough in his approach, going through documents and explaining the legal jargon in layman's terms. As an HR professional myself I learned a lot from Ian during our meeting. I would recommend using Ian's services for any employment issues.

The service I received was very professional. Ian Jones dealt with the issue I had in a very compassionate way. He was very thorough in fully understanding the situation to ensure that he could assist me. There were many terms that I was unfamiliar with that he clarified for me.
If I need legal assistance again Spencer Shaw will be my first port of call.

I had a call back from Ian Jones within the hour. He was very helpful and I would thoroughly recommend you give this firm a call if you are experiencing conflict with your employer.

I contacted Ian having done some research online and after speaking to a few solicitors. Ian's calming manner, logical thinking and expert advice helped me through a difficult period which resulted in me securing a good settlement agreement. If you have an employment issue, I would highly recommend him.

I visited Ian Jones as I needed to get advise on a Settlement Agreement. I chose Ian purely from what I had read on online reviews and I'm so glad I did.

When meeting Ian he explained the agreement to me in detail. There were a few issues with the agreement which Ian relayed to my ex-employer. These issues were resolved very quickly in my favour and I was happy to sign and bring a very difficult situation to an end.

Thank you Ian for your help. You made a somewhat difficult and upsetting situation easier to bare. You were extremely understanding and sympathetic and without your assistance this process would have been made more upsetting.

I would HIGHLY recommend Ian and Spencer Shaw Solicitors to anyone who finds themselves in a difficult situation, hence the reason for my 5 stars.

Thank you Ian.
