“ELP Solicitors expertly guided us through the maze of disciplinary, grievance and procedural issues of employment law, so that we felt fully prepared with realistic expectations of the outcome. We would highly recommend the services of ELP solicitors."
Emigration Advisers in Edinburgh
" Tiphereth is a medium sized Edinburgh charity, operating in the voluntary sector, offering care and work opportunities to adults with learning disabilities. We use ELP solicitors for legal advice and support in human resource issues, and for assistance in drafting letters, policies and contracts. The arrangement makes sense for us financially and is good value for money. ELP lawyers have been consistently helpful to our organisation over several years, offering clear legal advice on a wide spectrum of issues, and often doing so at very short notice. "

" We deal with digital distribution of music. We wanted to use a law firm who were good at what they do but who also had a modern and friendly approach that would suit our kind of business. We have used ELP to frame our employment contracts and employment policies, which are well drafted and tailored to suit and protect our business. We are also able to call them when anything legal comes up in the business that we need some guidance on, whether it be staffing issues or anything else. This is probably the best part of the service we receive – ELP are always happy to help, and we can speak to them as business advisers as well as employment lawyers. We would definitely recommend ELP to any business needing employment law or just general advice. "

" We are a firm of chartered surveyors operating in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas and on two occasions required help in relation to employment legislation. In the first instance, we were looking to employ a chartered surveyor from a company which had gone into voluntary liquidation and sought advice from ELP Solicitors prior to proceeding due to concerns in relation to matters such as restrictive covenants. That advice was well explained on a sound basis, delivered timely and enabled us to proceed with employing the person. Following his employment we reviewed our contracts of employment and ELP provided an excellent service. In a constantly changing working environment, ELP provided us with a standard contract of employment that we jointly reviewed taking into account the nature of our business and business practices and produced a document to the satisfaction of both employer and employees. The service provided by ELP was first class in terms of efficiency, consideration of options and attention to detail. We propose to continue our relationship with ELP in the years to come in relation to employment issues as it has become quite clear that such services from a competent organisation are invaluable in the present working environment."
