What the directories say...

"This "businesslike and pragmatic" employment outfit is on the up in the Thames Valley. It has recently won new clients such as Hitachi, Time Warner and Thames Water. The HR training function has also grown, and close associations with health and safety consultants allow the team to provide advice and support in this area too. A "hands-on approach" differentiates the team from some of the City firms traditionally used by blue-chip clients. This firm offers a high level of day-to-day support and expertise in tribunal work, including advice on second generation TUPE claims for a number of international and national clients."
