Who we are?
our History
Established by Julian Taylor, the firm has been operating as a specialist employment law practice for over 15 years, but the team, still led by Julian, has combined employment law experience of nearly 80 years. 

We are based in Oxfordshire, between Oxford and Bicester, just a small jump from London.

We help many companies and individuals to navigate a whole range of employment issues. 

Settlement agreements are one key area of expertise and so in 2021 we established this specific website to provide clients with more information on this topic and to focus on one of our main service offerings. 

We still advise on a full range of employment law issues so are well placed to answer all employment related queries
