Having recently used Menzies Law’s Pay & Reward service, I found it invaluable having a Reward expert to help support me.  It saved time and gave me confidence that I was getting it right.  As an all round HR generalist, you need to recognise when to bring in the big guns - and I'm very pleased I did!

Luke and Jane are both highly professional and, given their respective backgrounds, are the perfect blend of ‘highly technical’ where needed and ‘been there, done that’. This makes them very easy to work with and you have the confidence and trust in them that, not only do they really understand what is being asked of them, but they also have the expertise to help.

As a very busy Human Resources director in an FE College, I find it extremely valuable to work with the team at Menzies Law. They are my ‘comfort buffer’ and things ‘happen quicker’ when I get them involved. Menzies Law ‘get’ how I like to work and they have taken time, over the years, to get to know the College too. Their Annual Retainer is worth every penny – I don’t know how we would manage to get the quality employment law advice we need without it.

We transferred to Menzies Law initially because they offered a flexible and cost-efficient solution. We’ve since created a strong relationship with their team and they have provided strong, commercial advice, which has been easy to understand and more importantly effective in our workplace.

When I set up Menzies Law in 2009, my aim was to make it exceptional… and it is. We’ve built an incredible team of highly knowledgeable, friendly, capable and effective specialist employment lawyers and related professionals to help you with all your people management needs.  Based in Bristol, our team of employment solicitors and barristers cover the whole of the South West and South Wales – and increasingly nationally too.

I am particularly proud of our multi-disciplinary team approach, blending our senior employment solicitors and barristers with equally senior pensions, data protection, HR, pay & reward and L&D specialists. The result is therefore a service that properly understands and supports our clients and delivers a holistic, joined-up approach.

No wonder, perhaps, that research by the UK’s leading law firm directory found that we get “rave reviews among clients”.
