“Exchange Chambers features a substantial employment team that benefits from the set's resources in related areas of law such as personal injury.”
Exchange Chambers is a distinctive force in the employment field. We are known for our strength in employment law in the North of England. We act for employees and a diverse range of employers, SME’s, PLC’s, charities and public sector organisations such as NHS trusts and local authorities.
We cover all main aspects of employment law, including:
We also have expertise in immigration issues arising from employment relationships, such as Tier 2 sponsorships.
We frequently appear at all levels of the Court and Tribunal Services including the Employment Tribunal, The Employment Appeal Tribunal, County Courts, the High Court, and higher appellate courts.
Members also undertake all forms of non-contentious drafting work including contracts of employment, collective agreements, settlement agreements, sub-contractor agreements and restrictive covenants.
Our team draws together members who specialise in complementary areas of law such as commercial, personal injury and regulatory law, thus we offer a uniquely strong and well-rounded service. Five members of the team are appointed as Junior Counsel to the Crown (via the Government Legal Department Panel).
