DBF Law launches HR Department | Davis Blank Furniss Solicitors

Davis Blank Furniss, the Manchester based law firm, is this week launching a brand new department which will offer companies of all sizes bespoke HR support from a handpicked team of experienced Employment Law solicitors.

The new team is headed up by Anna Bunting – partner- and is primarily aimed at both North West and UK wide SMEs that wish to outsource their often complex human resource needs. The launch follows an intense period of consultation with existing clients and contacts. During that process, various sectors were approached and all kept reiterating that they needed a service that would allow them more time to spend growing their organisations and less on handling employee and staffing matters.

Through its HR Package product, the department is now offering a number of core services on both a retained and ‘pay as you go basis’, including; advice on redundancies, unfair dismissals and grievances as well as tribunal claim representation. Additional bolt-ons include a bespoke insurance product for all employment disputes, a dedicated advice line for urgent queries and preferential rates with Davis Blank Furniss for the employees of client companies.

Anna will be joined by colleagues including; Shiva Shadi – partner – and Claire Smith – associate solicitor. The launch follows an exciting 12 months for the firm including a number of key appointments in its Manchester and Glossop offices and the recent launch of a Healthcare division.

Anna commented; “The new department is an exciting step for the firm and one that has been carefully planned for a while. Our aim has been to base it on what companies have said they actually need and not on our presumptions. Adhering to complex legislation is a minefield, and can be costly if things go wrong, so it’s essential business can trust the advice that is being given.

Anna concluded; We’re also confident the launch complements the firm’s wider offering and we’re looking forward to growing its reach.”

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.

Ben Armitage

“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.

Joanne Rowe, Finance Director, Greater Manchester Chamber

“Always able to contact, very approachable, friendly and professional”

Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment

“I believe I have been able to establish a professional working relationship with everyone I have come into contact. Importantly, I sense the relationships which have been established give me the confidence that I can make contact with Davis Blank Furniss at any time and on any matter. I would also like to express my thanks to the very impressive “gatekeepers” who work in reception, not only for making me very welcome, but also for their professionalism”

Bill Pryke, CEO, Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors

“Thank you for your efficient and friendly help throughout this process. We have had it easy but your approach has been part of that”.

Robert Amsbury (Conveyancing Client)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years. I hope also that we may be able to call on you if necessary in the future.”

Valerie Fisher (Probate Client)

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”

Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland

“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”

Anon (Personal Injury client)

“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
