Why use a solicitor?

In this blog post, we look at the benefits of instructing a solicitor to help with employment advice and assitance. 

Robinson Ralph provide advice on the full range of employment law issues, from supporting due diligence on a business transfer to advising on disciplinary issues. Whatever the issue, a common theme is the prospect of litigation. We want to help our clients minimise the risks involved with a Tribunal claim.

Our high level of training and continuing professional development obligations mean you can be assured of quality advice.

We also want you to be able to communicate freely with us, and us with you, so that we can give you the best advice possible. Our relationship is, of course, governed by solicitor-client confidentiality. We are highly regulated (by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority) and the solicitors’ code of conduct requires us to keep the affairs of current and former clients confidential.

But there is one other important factor that helps us give you the best advice possible, which is that communications between us and our clients are covered by “legal advice privilege” and therefore do not need to be disclosed in legal proceedings or response to data subject access requests. It is self-evident that you would not want the communications between you and your lawyer to be seen by your opponent and the court; those communications could negatively affect your prospects of success and your negotiating position.

Legal advice privilege only extends to legal advice given by a member of the legal profession, including qualified solicitors.

That is why you are best off instructing a solicitor. If you would like to find out more about Robinson Ralph’s services, please get in touch at info@robinsonralph.com or or book straight into our diary here for a free initial no obligation chat.
