Highly recommend

Ben called me back regarding a Restrictive covenant being written into my contract from a previous employer. He gave me some really good advice over the phone and I was very impressed with his knowledge and would highly recommend him and will definitely use him again in the future.

Thank you for the service to my company.
Our original Contract of Employment was originated in the 1980's and with so much legislation over the years sadly out of date and probably a costly disaster waiting to happen had it been legally tested. With little fuss you produced for us an up to date bespoke Contract of Employment fit for purpose and at extremely economical cost.
Further, we were experiencing difficulties with the authorities due to a part time employee who also received sales commission on a self employed basis on a 1980's Agents Contract. You were able to produce an up to date Agents Contract covering all the relevant issues and thereby helped us enormously in concluding the situation. Again, the cost was very reasonable.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Thornber Employment Law Ltd and always happy to speak personally to any who may wish to follow up this testimonial.
Yours Sincerely
Ian Chisnall

Fast and Detailed Reply to my Query.

I recently contacted Thornber Employment Law for some advice and received a very prompt reply addressing all my concerns.

The response was detailed, and the advice was free of charge. At the moment, my situation does not require any further legal action, but I would not hesitate to contact Ben Thornber again should I decide to pursue the matter further.
