Welcome to Ergo Law

Cathy Donald & Emma Reid, Directors at Ergo Law

The world has many law firms. Most of them look rather similar and say familiar things about what they do. Many of them do it very well. Our aim was to create a law firm which looks, sounds and feels different from most traditional law firms. We have established a practice with compassion and spirit, yet which upholds excellent professional standards and provides the highest quality legal advice. Welcome to Ergo Law.

What’s different about Ergo Law?

For one, we have only one area of practice - employment law. This means that we specialise in advising both on the issues which arise in the workplace on a daily basis as well as on more unusual or complex situations. We have experience of dealing with a broad range of industries and with businesses both large and small.  We are also experienced in advising employee clients at all levels of their careers.  We have a highly practical knowledge of, and insight into, the world of work. 

We spend time getting to know our client’s story and our advice extends beyond the technical application of the law. We are listeners, translators, counsellors and lawyers. We are skilled in stepping in to your shoes and representing you (whether you are an employer or an employee) to untangle the trickiest of situations and make things feel clearer. 

How can we help you?

We are strategic thinkers and will be there to explain the different steps to achieving the best we can for you, whether that is a smooth implementation of new contracts and policies for an established business, raising a grievance on behalf of an aggrieved worker, appealing a dismissal or fighting a tribunal claim.  We will use our creative approach to craft solutions that suit you. As we represent both employers and employees we know how the other side thinks - which is always a tactical advantage!

We’ll be there if you have any questions. We’ll also let you know if there’s something we think you’d find interesting or useful. You’ll get to know your dedicated adviser and you’ll only ever speak to one of the partners. You’ll find us compassionate, straightforward to deal with, realistic and fearless and we’re sure you’ll want us on your side.

Please get in touch for a no obligation discussion and we will tell you how we can help.
