How We Can Help
We provide quality legal advice on complex employment and commercial matters. We are solution orientated and have a ‘hands on’ approach.
As a team of highly experienced employment law specialists, we provide bespoke and commercial solutions on employment law issues. We provide practical and commercial solutions to a wide range of businesses, from PLC's to professional partnerships (such as law firms and medical practices). Our expertise also includes schools, charities and nursing homes. We advise in house HR/finance/legal departments on how to deal with legal issues arising in the workplace. It may be a major reorganisation, introduction of an incentive scheme, management training or dealing with a difficult individual. We also provide an in house employment law service. All of us have a wealth of experience in City or major London legal practices.
We provide individuals with pragmatic solutions to their employment issues in the workplace. We help individuals achieve their objective in a cost-effective manner. Advice is provided on all employment legal issues from reviewing employment contracts to employment claims for unfair dismissal and/or discrimination, for example. We also provide advice on settlement agreements, restrictive covenants and whistleblowing. Our tactical approach is tailored to each individual’s needs in what can be a delicate and stressful situation.
Whether you are an entrepreneur creating a start up business or a well-established international entity, we offer you practical and commercial advice. Our expertise includes advising on business structures, customer and supplier contracts, shareholder/partner agreements, TUPE transfers, outsourcing arrangements, distribution and franchise agreements for a very wide range of businesses including media, retail and wholesale, consulting and professional services. We also assist with sale and purchase agreements for assets and shares, reorganisations and internet issues.
We have acted recently for a fashion client to bring an investor on board; a property client selling one business and building up another; a website client with its online terms and conditions and contracts for advertisers and partners; company owners on their personal liability and the terms of a possible shareholders’ agreement; a private members’ club on its constitution, start ups and many others.
We hold a regular business breakfast, often with a speaker on issues relevant to businesses, with an opportunity to meet other businesses and talk to us about employment or commercial matters.

What Others Are Saying
"Belinda was at all times responsive and astute in the handling of my case. SW19Lawyers know their subject matter well and provided a very friendly and supportive service."
[Magic Circle Partner]
"Stacy is very friendly, patient and accommodating. She is extremely professional, her knowledge is extensive and an asset to any client. We worked through creating thorough terms and conditions and answered any questions I had in great detail, spending many hours editing the initial draft. This was our first project with SW19 Lawyers and I will not hesitate to instruct them in future."
[A Commercial client]
“I have worked with SW19 who have always been incredibly dedicated and focused on the task in hand. They provide pragmatic and commercial advice notwithstanding the legal complexities. I highly value their high standard of client service and concern for their clients’ interests and I positively recommend them to others.”
As the director of a small tech firm dealing with very large multinational firms, I was finding it hard to find good commercial legal advice to cover both US and UK law and commercial practice. Luckily Stacy has been an absolute star, taking time to personally go into the finer details of the of transatlantic legalities and commercial realities while bringing her extensive legal knowledge and commercial experience to bear. So far she's been invaluable in moving things forward, being extremely quick to respond and diligent in her work. I look forward to continuing to work with her and can wholeheartedly recommend her services.

From my initial briefing with Stacy to the end of my project, I had complete faith in her and she put me at completely ease and hand held me through the entire process. Stacy went over and above the service I was expecting and I can not recommend her highly enough. I will return and use SW Lawyers for any future legal matters.
