Free EnquiryHow Do You Choose An Employment Law Solicitor In Scotland

If you are looking for an Employment Law Solicitor, how do you know which is the best one for you? This guide sets out some questions you should ask to ensure you obtain the right solicitor.

Choose A Specialist

One of the first questions you must ask before choosing an Employment Law Solicitor in Scotland is whether they are a specialist in this area of law. The law is constantly changing and evolving and you need to be confident that you are working with an employment law solicitor who really does understand his subject matter. This will provide you with the best prospects of success.

So how do you know if your chosen solicitor is a specialist, here are a few suggestions:

  1. They have a dedicated Employment Law website. If they have gone to the time and expense to develop a website solely aimed at serving employment law clients, it shows commitment to the subject matter. They would not go to this expense if the employment law work they undertook was not an important part of their legal practice.
  2. Their website is more than a three or four page brochure website. It should detail all of the services that they offer, and if your solicitor is an expert in the field of employment law, this should amount to at least 10 pages of content around the core employment law subjects such as:
    • Compromise Agreements
    • Redundancy
    • Unfair Dismissal
    • Constructive Dismissal
    • Tribunal Claims
    • Grievance Procedures
    • Disciplinary Procedures
    • Employment Contracts
    • Discrimination
    • Harassment
  3. They are based in Scotland. There are many services that are offered remotely now, often by English legal teams. It is important that if your matter relates to a Scotland Employment issue that you deal with a specialist Employment Law Solicitor who is based in Scotland to ensure that they know the Scottish law inside out.


A good employment law solicitor will have feedback from his clients confirming the excellent service provided. Someone that works in this field of law regularly will clearly have expertise and this will be reflected in the form of excellent client feedback. Look through their website or brochures for different comments from clients so that you can build some trust in their service offering.

Easy To Contact

The solicitor should make it easy for you to contact them. They will understand that if you are having employment law problems, whether as an employee or an employer, it is often a stressful time. They will ensure that you can contact them easily, either by completing an enquiry form from their website or by telephone. If you struggle to find their contact telephone number or an easy to complete enquiry form, do they deserve to receive your business?


You should seek an Employment Law Solicitor that is based in Scotland and clearly devotes a significant portion of their time to handling employment law matters and is easy to contact to ask for assistance. A quick review of their website followed by how quickly they respond to your enquiry and how easy to talk to they are, will determine if you have found the right Employment Law Solicitor to help you.
