Human Resources

Our team is one of the largest employment and employee benefits departments in East Anglia.

Greenwoods’ Managing Director, Robert Dillarstone believes the team's growth reflects their approach to working with clients.

‘We work as an integral part of clients’ management teams, we aim to be accessible at all times and to provide a speed of response to meet clients’ needs efficiently.’

Our team, well known for its advocacy skills and frequent tribunal appearances, provides a comprehensive employment law service including claims for wrongful and unfair dismissal, sex, race and disability discrimination claims, drafting of contractual documentation, transfers of undertakings, breach of confidentiality and restraint of trade including injunctions.

The team acts for organisations across a wide range of industry and service areas in both the public and private sectors including a number who are US owned.  Team members work hard to understand the issues clients face in the context of their business. 

Members of the team are actively involved in the Employment Lawyers Association and our immigration law expert is a member of the Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association.
