Proactive support for your business’s people services

Navigating the complexities of employment law is vital for anyone managing people in a business, whether as an owner, in-house lawyer, or HR/People professional. Understanding these intricacies equips you to confidently address the challenges that come with being an employer.
Supporting you

In today’s dynamic business environment, integrating legal strategies with your overall business and people objectives is key. This approach is particularly beneficial during unexpected challenges, helping your business stay responsive and flexible.

As People services and HR functions increasingly focus on strategic planning, the need for proactive support in employment law grows. Our approach is not just about addressing issues as they arise; it’s about helping you build a resilient organisational structure that’s prepared for future risks and market changes.

Dealing with complex issues like collective redundancies, intricate outsourcing, or international expansion, and TUPE transactions can be overwhelming. It’s about finding clear, practical solutions that transform these legal challenges into opportunities for your business.

Support in employment law means more than just navigating legal complexities. It’s about partnering with someone who understands the needs of your organisation and helps transform potential legal challenges into effective strategies for long-term growth and stability.

The Square One Law team are excellent. They always provide us not only with rapid, detailed and most of all, cost effective guidance but also advice that is very commercial.

We’ve worked with Square One Law across our business from the start. They understand our proposition and can deliver in terms of us achieving quick turnaround times for our customer base, which will promote new benchmarks for the industry.

It is important to have a strong and trusted team of professional advisors. That is why I use Square One Law.

Peter StephensonExecutive Chairman, Able UK

The reason that our partnership has worked is that when you’re building a business you need to work with organisations that will take the time to understand your business, that have all the resource base that you need and that you trust. I think that when you build up a start-up you need to pull on a lot of resources and having an organisation that you can just lift up the phone – you can talk to somebody – and they’ll give you some interim advice on the spot, then that’s great; then you can go through more detail in the process.

Matthew LumsdenCEO, Connected Energy

The Square One Law team played a pivotal role in the launch and growth of North East Times. Their input extended beyond legal matters, offering crucial business advice that spurred our early initiatives. Recently, their support proved invaluable once more. Their guidance was key in securing a new investment, enabling our expansion into digital publishing and bespoke high-level events. Their pragmatic and efficient approach was refreshing and has made a big contribution to the growth of our business.

I would not have taken the business anywhere other than with Square One from my previous experiences but you all - without compromise - delivered over and above my expectations. My whole Team commented on a regular basis as to the professional and supportive interaction throughout the project. I cannot thank you all enough and would without question recommend Square One to anyone as my first choice for any legal advice. Great to work alongside and do business with good, kind, committed and professional people with great values.
