"Cripps LLP has 'a very strong team at all levels', which is able to 'tailor its advice to suit clients' businesses'."
'One of many strengths at Cripps is the depth of knowledge in the team; if one member of the team is unavailable, another is there to help. '
'Another strength of the team, which sets them apart from other firms I have dealt with, is the commercial focus of their advice. I am never told simply the legal position of my enquiry - it's always within the specific context of our business and the objectives that we are seeking to achieve.'
'I have yet to encounter a member of the employment law team that was not of a very high calibre.'
A client reports: "They always provide a good level of customer service and quick response times," describing the team as "flexible and helpful."
"The advice is quick and measured. It strikes exactly the right balance between legal versus practical."
Cripps Pemberton Greenish is skilled in advising clients on a range of contentious and non-contentious employment matters, such as restructurings, discrimination claims, TUPE, and redundancies.
"A real point of differentiation between them and other firms I have used, is that the team not only offers clear advice (as opposed to a range of options and possible outcomes), but this advice is commercially-focused and specific to our business and circumstances."
"Where others have provided our company with general points based solely on the law, Cripps know our business, our marketplace and our people and the advice is tailored accordingly."
"The team is knowledgeable, reactive and practical."
"My overall impression is that they provide excellent, professional employment law support and very good client service."
