UK first for Telford law firm

We're launching a unique telephone helpline that offers a listening ear for troubled company bosses.

The Helpline is specifically for people in business, in a bid to help them make the right decisions in the current turbulent economic climate. And the service is believed to be the first of its kind in the UK, thanks to its innovative structure and approach.

John Mehtam, our Employment Law specialist, will take the calls from worried companies, and offer free advice over the telephone and by email. “It’s impossible to ignore the headlines – every news bulletin is dominated by the doom and gloom of our turbulent economic climate. For any business, large or small, these are difficult times, and the future may seem daunting.

“But we wanted to develop a new service that could help companies steer their way through today’s increasingly difficult trading conditions.”

John said the aim of the Helpline – 0845 644 6383 – was to offer advice to businesses to help ensure they did not take decisions in the current climate that could cost them dearly. An information pack on dealing with redundancies will also be available.

"It’s absolutely crucial that bosses don’t risk their company’s future by making decisions alone without the appropriate advice, and we
can help businesses find their way through the minefield of legislation and avoid the pitfalls along the way.”

Employers who would like to find out more about the new service or receive the redundancy information pack should email
