Employment law offering expands at Blacks Solicitors

Leeds-based Blacks Solicitors is offering a new employment law service.

The internal investigations service has been established to provide expert and impartial advice to the SME market from the six-strong employment team.

Paul Kelly (pictured, right), head of employment law at Blacks, explained: “External investigations conducted by solicitors are rarely seen in the SME market but their popularity is growing. We’ve therefore identified a need in the SME marketplace for professional, cost-effective investigations advice.”

“We are experienced employment lawyers and understand the steps that must be taken to conduct a thorough and comprehensive internal investigation and we’re looking forward to supporting clients with this new service.”

The employment team will work with SMEs to enable them to find cost-effective solutions when conducting impartial investigations into staff wrongdoing, and support the production of comprehensive outcomes that can stand up to scrutiny in subsequent tribunal proceedings. 

Chris Allen (pictured, left), managing partner at Blacks, added: “As the firm continues to grow, we’re always looking for new areas where we can expand to offer our clients the full service that they’re looking for. With the requirement for internal investigations support continuing to grow, it was a clear choice for our employment team to offer this service.”

“It’s an exciting time for Blacks with teams across the firm expanding and I’m looking forward to seeing the positive impact that our new employment service has on our current and future clients.” 

Alongside the new employment law service, the corporate team at Blacks also recently expanded with the appointment of Richard Morton to lead the firm’s new banking law offering.
