It is an absolute pleasure working with the team at Bramhalls. They don't overcomplicate matters or try to tie you up in lots of legal jargon. We have worked with the team for over 10 years now and they know our business and culture really well, which helps them to advise based on the realities of the operating environment. Whenever we need some advice or a second opinion, they are always on hand to guide us and their calm and consistent approach helps us to deal with matters quickly and efficiently.

Phil and the team at Bramhalls have provided employment law advice to me and the HR team at the college for over 12 years. They are great and fun to work with. They understand our organisation, are knowledgeable about the Education Sector and they're always quick to grasp the matter at hand. They provide pragmatic advice to enable us to move forward in a sensible way and are always quick to respond.

Rehan is a lovely guy who is very knowledgeable and considerate. My experience on every occasion over the past 6 years has been excellent. If I experience a problem where I need advice for a situation, it doesn't matter who answers the phone, I know I will get the best advice in a way that I understand the thought process of how the recommendations have been considered. They are a lovely friendly team, who I will continue to recommend on a daily basis to fellow HR professionals who need employment law advice.
