What Our Clients Are Saying
Eight Legal is The Sensible Choice if You Have Staff
James and Kay at Eight Legal have a different approach to employment and employment law compared to other law firms. They have the practice harmony at the centre of their philosophy. If a person is no longer part of the team then it is better for them to leave. James was at the end of the phone or email practically every day through the process. The process was still painful but we did not have to go through the endless cycle of warnings, disciplinary hearings and tribunal; instead we cut to the chase discussed best options and then were guided to achieve a resolution. Because we pay a monthly retainer there is no concern about costs snowballing out control. Kay has also helped us with doing appraisals and we are in the process of updating our contracts; all this is included in the retainer price. I would say Eight Legal is the sensible choice if you have staff!
Eight Legal Will Put You First
We have had practices join Eight Legal whilst their current contracts with big providers are still live and Eight Legal have jumped in and saved them from intolerable situations with nightmare employees. The difference being, the advice you will get from a company who also provide insurance cover will always be in the interest of them not having to ever pay out. This is rarely the advice that’s in the best interest of the business. Eight Legal will put you first and give you good advice, and probably save you hours of admin time in dealing with these cases. As a new practice owner (that wasn’t in our life plan!), I engaged Eight Legal early on to advise on contracts etc, and was pleased I did as we had a case of bullying which they dealt with. I absolutely know that if I’d been advised elsewhere, the most that would have happened would be she had a verbal warning and I’d still have a bad apple and a disunited team.
Made a Big Difference
We have been with Eight legal for some years now, it has made a big difference to us having proactive efficient advice available at the end of the phone. The advice is proactive rather than reactive and has enabled me to run the business the way I want, with greater harmony within the practice teams
I Cannot Recommend Eight Legal Highly Enough
I was seeking to improve employee engagement in running the practice as a business. They helped me through the stressful and painful process. The result is that I have a more harmonious practice with improved engagement and profitability. I cannot recommend Eight Legal highly enough.
