Practical, no nonsense commercial advice. Valued and highly recommended Concise, business focussed and innovative Clear and unpatronising advice and an incredibly efficient service Draper Lang’s service is excellent, immediate and always commercial with a view of our business not just our legal needs.

Draper Lang is instructed by a number of law firms to act for them, their clients or for those they cannot work for due to a conflict of interest.

This is a particularly useful service in respect of work which it is often not cost effective for US and City law firms to undertake – such as advice on settlement agreements, employment tribunal litigation or due diligence.

This service works as, whilst we do not compete in the same market as City and US law firms, we do have expertise and experience which is well regarded and recognised, and which allows those firms to refer work to us with confidence knowing that we will not to seek to “poach” any client introduced to us.

The hourly rates are extremely competitive and we are happy to agree fixed fees for projects and simple employment tribunal claims.

The types of work which fits this model well are:

  • Employment tribunal litigation
  • Corporate support and employment related due diligence
  • Providing independent advice to conflicted senior executives
  • Advice on individual and group settlement agreements

A recent example of our work with another law firm involved advising the management team of a target business in respect of their new Service Agreements and incentive terms to stay with the acquirer, which was being separately advised by a City law firm.

“It is incredibly useful having highly-competent independent and non-conflicted employment law specialist to call upon for clients and contacts”
