Iain Burke Borders Employment Law, Galashiels

The benefit of regular UEL meetings is almost incalculable.  It allows me to meet up with fellow members in a relaxed and congenial setting, share thoughts and experiences, and generally continue to develop the friendships which have come out of this unique organisation, all of which, of course helps promote our aim of working collaboratively with each other for the benefit of our individual firms, our clients, and UEL as a whole.

Graham Laughton Macleod & MacCallum, Inverness

By meeting regularly with other practitioners in the UEL we have the opportunity to exchange not only legal experience but practical advice.  We work to promote our own businesses but by working with others we also have the opportunity to see how other members are growing their businesses and this gives us an opportunity to learn from each other.

There is a real need to provide access to justice in employment law both for employers and for employees. It is exciting to be part of a group that is determined to address this issue.
