About the Lawrite Lawshop

Trusted by thousands of UK employers

Thousands of UK employers have used Lawrite employment law support subscription services since Lawrite was first established in 1997, with our original packaged employment law "toolkit" for small business employers launched - on cd-rom rather than digital download, then - in 1999.

Lawrite customers include a wide variety of employers in the UK.  The businesses and organisations that use Lawrite subscriptions include shops, hotels and restaurants, employment agencies, estate agents, schools, care homes and charities.

Lawrite annual subscriptions are used by business owners, managers, and in-house HR professionals to ensure they have up to date employment law document templates - including contracts of employment and employee handbooks with essential HR policies and procedures - and detailed law guides to work with, and access to telephone legal advice from employment lawyers when it is required.

Our experienced legal team

Lawrite's legal team is led by our managing director Martin Phillips, who is a solicitor with more than 30 years’ experience specialising in employment law.

Pragmatic advice and solutions

Calls to the Lawrite Legal Advice Line are handled by working employment lawyers, not a call centre, and our aim is that our customers will get pragmatic advice and solutions to their problems, not just information.

Our employment lawyers commonly advise our support service subscribers about what to do when they need to take disciplinary action or dismiss an employee, deal with staff grievances, deal with performance or capability issues, and handle applications for flexible working or maternity or parental leave.

They can give advice about holiday entitlement and working time issues, entitlement to breaks, wages and equal pay, and many other aspects of employment law and HR-related queries.

Lawrite HR and management consultancy

If you want a higher level of legal and HR support for your business, or wish to entirely outsource your HR department, that can be provided by Lawrite HR, our associated HR and management consultancy. 

For example, the Managed HR service gives you a bespoke employment contract for each employee, and employee handbooks specifically drafted to suit your business, all prepared for you by an employment lawyer. Managed HR clients get one to one support from a named lawyer or consultant to deal with HR and legal issues as they occur.
