Employment Law and HR
Integrated support services to help your HR team soar
Even the most proficient HR and ER teams can benefit from expert support to take them to the next level. But using a law firm can mean clock watching and over-cautious advice, while some subscription providers don’t offer the quality of advice or personalised approach you need, leaving you paying for a service that doesn’t really serve you.
Introducing ESPHR (from WorkNest) – a new-model employment law service, fusing SRA-regulated legal advice with ER case management technology and online resources.

Group HR Director, Culina Group
We moved our legal support to WorkNest (formerly Law at Work) having previously used a time and line law firm. It was important, though, that an all-inclusive fee structure did not come at the expense of quality. Thankfully we’ve been delighted with the service we’ve received from WorkNest.”
What we recognised in WorkNest is the background that they have. They are able to supply knowledge and experience in a number of disciplines, which enables us to develop our business in a way that’s safe, to do it on time and with a quality to it.”
