Online PR News – 18-September-2011 – – Paul Whitfield founded niche employment law practice, Fox Whitfield, in February 2010. Since then he has established a broad base of both employer and employee clients both locally and as far away as Kent, London, Lincolnshire and Edinburgh. What has been particularly encouraging is the huge number of those new clients that are from personal recommendations.
Fox Whitfield quickly established a strong reputation for providing practical and honest advice at a cost effective price. They seek to resolve issues by working with clients and their individual situations rather than simply advising on the legal position. As a result, many clients moved to Fox Whitfield after finding their proactive and open approach a refreshing change.
This approach has successfully resolved a wide range of matters from High Court Injunctions to compromise agreements, unfair dismissals to complex employment tribunal hearings.
With almost a hundred new clients, Fox Whitfield is undertaking a phase of growth and investment, including opening two new offices in Warrington and Lincolnshire.
Paul Whitfield explains "Rather than operating as a conventional law firm Fox Whitfield works in a modern and innovative way. Current technology means our lawyers work efficiently from satellite offices rather than being permanently based in one central office. Much of the physical infrastructure traditionally required by a law firm is no longer needed and the reduced office space and administration enables us to pass considerable savings on to clients without compromising on the quality of advice given."
Peter Krick will lead the new Lincolnshire Office.
Peter qualified in 1985, and deals with all forms of employment law, he also deals with civil litigation matters. Peter was previously head of employment at a regional firm and as such brings a wealth of experience to Fox Whitfield.
Jill Shields is to head Fox Whitfield’s new Cheshire office, based in Warrington.
Prior to Fox Whitfield Jill ran her own Employment Law consultancy providing all aspects of employment law and HR advice. This included a monthly fixed fee employment law helpline service which will be continuing under Fox Whitfield.
Paul Whitfield is delighted to be welcoming two solicitors of such calibre. They will both be central to the continuing expansion of both the Firm’s reputation and size.
Fox Whitfield's solicitors are always happy to speak to potential clients without charge about individual situations to see if it would be worth taking formal advice. Wherever possible we undertake work on either fixed or capped fees agreed up front so there is no surprise with unexpected costs.
