Why choose a solicitor?

WorkLegal is a firm of employment law solicitors. Not all businesses that advertise as employment advisers are credentialled, trained and regulated as a solicitor.By engaging a solicitor you benefit by:

  • Professional standards: Solicitors are regulated by strict standards of professional conduct. At WorkLegal we strive to meet and exceed those high standards.
  • Training and expertise: Solicitors are qualified with a law degree and must maintain their knowledge by completing a prescribed level of training each year. At WorkLegal we maintain our professional edge by staying current with developments in employment law.
  • Legal advice privilege: Protection applies to confidential communications and documents between a lawyer and a client made for the dominant purpose of the lawyer providing legal advice or professional legal services to the client, or for use in current or anticipated litigation. This means that our confidential advice communications with you will not be seen by a court or tribunal or another party in a dispute.
