Choosing the right people to advise you on employment law matters is crucial. You need to make sure that you choose a safe pair of hands. At Doyle Clayton we are proud of our reputation for quality but don't just take our word for it, here are what some of our clients and peers have to say about us:
"This team maintains a formidable profile for its representation of senior executives on complex restrictive covenant disputes, team moves and discrimination claims. It also advises individuals on sexual harassment, whistle-blowing and equal pay claims and acts for employers on a wide range of matters."

“This team impresses with its sound, commercial approach and growing skills in discrimination matters. It is also admired for its expertise in TUPE issues, compromise agreements and employment tribunals, and in the past year has handled restrictive covenant cases in the High Court, discrimination cases in tribunal courts, and advised on executive departures in the banking and insurance sectors."

The Legal 500
"We have worked with Doyle Clayton for more than 5 years and continue to be impressed by the service we receive. We have a dedicated partner who leads the relationship with the charity, supported by a knowledgeable and friendly team who understand the services we provide and the environment within which we are operating.
Their responsive and understanding approach enables us to reach workable solutions to resolve disputes and ensures that relevant, constructive advice is given in relation to any issues raised."
Marie Curie Cancer Care
“As a FTSE 50 Company we are driven to maximise shareholder value and return on investment, in addition we strive to create customer lifetime loyalty. Our people are our single biggest asset and as such we need to engage a pragmatic and professional legal team that can deliver fast, efficient, business aligned employment law counsel.
Doyle Clayton continues to deliver against that service model and as a People Director I feel safe in the knowledge that the advice I receive will be based on those values.
One of Doyle Clayton’s best qualities is their ability to translate, what can sometimes be conflicting and confusing legislation into layman’s terms , thus enabling the business to take and make decisions that are in the best interests of all concerned.”
Experian UK Ltd
“I have worked with Doyle Clayton for over 5 years now and have instructed them on a wide range of matters from the straightforward contractual queries to the complex issues of TUPE/Mergers and Acquisitions, Directors' remuneration and business liquidation.
I continue to be delighted with the level of service that I receive. They are highly responsive and treat all of my queries, regardless of their complexity, as a priority. I am most impressed with their commerciality and ability to assimilate disparate information quickly, to come back with professional (and most importantly) workable solutions.
Regardless of who you contact in Doyle Clayton, I am always provided with a first class service and response. Without question, the team have strong commercial and business acumen, which is demonstrated in the solutions that they provide to me.
I would strongly recommend Doyle Clayton as Employment Lawyers to both SME and large corporates.”
CUK Clothing Ltd
"Doyle Clayton has always been responsive to our business, providing us with a dedicated partner to call in times of need. They have taken time to learn our companies' nuances which has enhanced our relationship, enabling them to provide us with solutions that are tailored to our needs rather than a 'one size fits all' answer. They also have a commercially focused approach to settling a problem rather than stating the facts without understanding the business 'realities'."
"We would recommend you to anyone and think your services are outstanding."
Greene King Pub Co
"Doyle Clayton is a trusted advisor of Towry. Client service is at the core of everything they do. They take time to get to know your business and, in the 5 years that I have worked with them, they have always been responsive, helpful, commercial and pragmatic.
We are a business that needs strategic, as well as tactical, employment advice, and on many occasions they have been required to work with fellow lawyers from slightly different fields. This they have always embraced, and I feel that they always have our best interests at the heart."
"Doyle Clayton provides commercial and pragmatic legal advice that helps us reduce the risks to the business of employing 4,000 people in the UK. They are responsive, whether it is for a small claim or a big transaction, allowing our small in-house legal team to focus on business development, transactions and revenue creation and retention rather than seeking to provide specialist and complicated employment advice. I highly recommend them."
"It has been a pleasure to work with Doyle Clayton. They have an ability to very quickly understand the real issues, and provide the charity with a range of workable solutions. The partnership has demonstrated an ability to deal with complex issues concerning both individuals and large organisation like the NHS. They have an affinity with the mission and purpose of the charity and surpassed our expectations in terms of time, commitment and flexibility. I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending them to other organisations."
"I have worked closely with Doyle Clayton on a wide range of employment related matters within our business; particularly in the area of Employment Tribunal Claims. The advice and support has been practical and flexible with outstanding results. They have taken time to understand our business and the advice offered has been tailored to match the commercial pressures that our business demands"
