WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and we love to receive feedback from our clients. Here is what our clients say about us.

“I was more than happy with the advice and representation which I received from ELP in relation to an employment tribunal dispute with my employers. From start to finish, ELP kept me up to date with any developments regarding my case during what was a stressful 6 months out of work. They also achieved a good result for me in advance of the Tribunal hearing. I would definitely recommend the firm to anyone in similar circumstances.”

“I am a disabled person, and was dismissed from my work. It was claimed that I did not perform the work to the required speed, and I felt that this was disability discrimination. I asked ELP to represent me in the Employment Tribunal process. I was correctly and informatively advised by ELP, and achieved the best option in resolution.”

“Late in life I found myself out of work and needing to negotiate hard with my former employers to get my rightful desserts. Duncan and the ELP team guided me every step of the way and worked hard on my behalf to a happy and successful conclusion.”

“I just wanted to thank you for your professional service you provided me during what is a very difficult time for me. Your experience, diligence and knowledge have resulted in a larger settlement of which I am very grateful . I also appreciated your patience and understanding of my situation. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to others.”

“We are a two partner law firm who do not specialise in Employment law. We have referred a number of our clients to Duncan McFadzean at ELP and those clients have always expressed their satisfaction at the work which ELP have done for them. We have also used ELP for any advice and guidance which we ourselves have required as a firm and have always found that advice to be accurate and tailored to our particular needs. ELP’s advice can be timely, cost effective and pragmatic. We have no hesitation in recommending them.”

“We are a medium sized law firm which does not have a department specialising in employment law matters. We have used ELP in relation to any employment law input we require as a firm. We have also referred a number of our clients to ELP for advice on such matters as we value the expert knowledge and quality service that Duncan McFadzean and his team provide. It is of paramount importance to us that both our own and our clients’ affairs are dealt with in a confidential and sensitive manner, and we know that we can rely on ELP for this. We would not hesitate to recommend ELP to either employers or employees who need advice in the employment law field.”

“We are a small Edinburgh based Holiday accommodation letting and management agency. When we recently realized that we needed to formalize employment contracts for our staff. We asked advice from colleagues friends and family and ELP were recommended to us . We have found them to be very helpful and friendly and would gladly recommend them to any one requiring help and advice regarding employment law.”

“I’ve turned to ELP for advice and support on a range of legal matters and have found them to be friendly, fast and efficient. A lot of people are intimidated by solicitors but ELP go out of their way to make legal support easy and accessible.”

“We are a firm of Chartered Surveyors operating in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas and on two occasions during the course of the last year 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 prior to proceeding due to concerns in relation to matters such as restrictive covenants. That advice was well explained on a sound basis, delivered timeously and enabled us to proceed with the employment of that person.

Following his employment we took the opportunity of reviewing our Contracts of Employment and to that end, ELP provided an excellent service in that regard. In what appears to be a constantly changing working environment, ELP provided us in the first instance with a standard Contract of Employment which 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.”

“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.”

“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 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 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.”

“ELP 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.”

“I own a cleaning business in Edinburgh and use ELP for advice on matters such as staff contracts, client contracts, and any dispute situations. I am very impressed by the advice which I receive. They are always able to help me with large and small pieces of work, and the approach they take is clear and aimed at achieving quick solutions. My first language is Polish, so while I am also fluent in English I appreciate the fact that ELP will always make arrangements to meet with me to talk matters through face to face when required. I would definitely recommend ELP to business owners and individuals who need legal advice.”

“The combination of services offered was ideal when we established our new office in Scotland. ELP provided us with concise employment contracts and excellent support during the lease negotiation for our office. Professionalism combined with a transparent service and price model – a brilliant solution for us.”

“We have been using the services of ELP, especially their employment law advice service for employers, for more than 3 years. The reason we chose ELP is previous firms of lawyers we used were very aloof and did not offer practical guidance. We have a great relationship with them and trust Duncan’s advice implicitly. The reason for this is he knows our business and understands our style of management. This is invaluable when you are dealing with staff issues. The advice given is straight forward and to the point. ELP have also helped us develop our staff handbook and other procedures that are relevant to our company over the years.”

“We are a firm of Consulting Engineers with 30 staff. Over the years we have used the services of Duncan McFadzean of ELP on a number of occasions. As well as advising us on updating our Conditions of Employment to keep us up to date with the ever changing legislation we have also used his services in connection with redundancy and disciplinary matters. The advice we have been given has always been excellent. It is a great comfort to us to have this level of professional support readily available at the end of the phone.”
