Leaders in Employment Law
Sherrards is a leading specialist employment law firm, providing employment law advisory services, HR consultancy and employment related training from our Head Office in Sussex. Sherrards has five specialist employment lawyers, as well as a number of legal consultants, and is recommended by the Legal 500 and Chambers, the leading directories of the legal profession, as a provider of employment law advice. Sherrards’ national client base includes organisations in the private, public, and voluntary sectors.
The team at Sherrards is praised in Chambers for providing “a first-rate, seamless service, with strong, clear advice.” One client interviewed by Chambers said “With Sherrards, I feel confident and assured about taking a case forward.” Another said “The team comes across as approachable and gets back to me very promptly.”
The Legal 500 describes Sherrards as “extremely professional” and states that the team “always provides excellent advice.” They note that Harry Sherrard and Dan Soanes “always explain the legal terms without complexity” and that Victoria Bevis is “well regarded for her clarity of explanation, patience, tenacity and professional manner.”
