Ellis Whittam


We are leaders in the provision of quality, employer-focused, Employment Law / HR and Health & Safety services. Traditionally, many employers have used solicitors and consultants on an hourly rate.

  • Reduce financial and reputational risk by ensuring legal compliance and avoiding potentially costly mistakes
  • Relieve pressure on management time and resources to allow you to focus on your core business
