Davis Blank Furniss has launched a new in-house Employment Law training service that can be tailored to the size, needs and resources of a particular business.

The programme, which is headed up by Anna Bunting – partner, and Shiva Shadi – head of the firm’s Employment department, has been designed to dispel the myths and tackle head on the issues that affect businesses in today’s legislative heavy world.

The team is able to go into clients’ offices to address their concerns and educate them with practical advice in a familiar environment and at a pace that suits them. The service is aimed at most sectors operating in the North West including; hospitality, professional services, manufacturing, property, recruitment, leisure and technology.

Topics are varied but some of the most popular will include;

  • Discipline and Grievance procedures:- investigations, hearings and appeals
  • Dealing with flexible working requests
  • Managing poor performance
  • Managing sickness absence
  • Handling redundancies
  • Recruitment
  • Social media
  • Misconduct
  • Equal opportunities
  • Discrimination

In addition, Davis Blank Furniss stages regular public Employment Law Updates at its head office in Manchester which can – again – be tailored and delivered in-house if required.

Anna Bunting commented:The whole Davis Blank Furniss team believes that effective communication and maintaining close working relationships with our clients are essential. We offer all the services you’d expect of a law firm but we like to go above and beyond when needed. We feel this bespoke programme reflects that and we are excited to see it rolling out and making a difference.”

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”.
