What Our Clients Are Saying
Pragmatic Common Sense Approach
We have been working with Eight Legal for 3 years now, having previously used the services of larger organisations who just didn’t seem to achieve anything.
James and his team have provided a formalised approach to our HR with regular updating as to contracts and the staff handbook throughout each year. We have in place suitable processes for every single new member of our team to be inducted into GP Vets.
Further to the above James has been able to approach each of our problems/challenges with a uniquely calm and personalised approach. He has brought a level of perspective from outside the business that has helped to take personality and ego out of the equation and to replace that with a calculated estimate of what it will cost the business to manage a problem… and equally what it will cost if we DON’T manage the problem! He has removed the FEAR element so beloved by the bigger legal companies and replaced it with a pragmatic common-sense approach.
In our experience, even relatively small changes to staffing, when managed well, have had a hugely positive knock-on effect upon the morale and well-being of the remaining team and indeed the profitability of the practice.
It’s Like The Sun Came Out
I can’t thank you enough. The progress in the practice has been outstanding…. and the atmosphere in the office is superb. It’s like the sun came out.
Very Happy With The Advice
We are a new client to Eight Legal, having previously been with one of the main steam HR consultants. I was becoming increasingly frustrated with the lukewarm advice I was receiving from my provider. After hearing James speak at a local VPMA event I was sure that his no nonsense approach was what we needed. I am very happy with the advice and the service that we get from James and the team at Eight Legal and would happily recommend them.
Since my introduction to Eight Legal, the workplace has been immeasurably less stressful and more productive. There has been less sickness days since and profits are up according to the accounts. I have no way of measuring where we would be had we not used their services but I do enjoy going to work, much more, again! They have continued to give good advice on numerous occasions and helped to avert problems in advance of an escalation. They are also easy to communicate with, practical and have a great sense of humour.
