About us

Philip McCabe, Principal and Employment Law Solicitor

I have been a specialist employment law solicitor for 14 years.

I work with businesses and individuals on a wide range of employment and human resources issues with a particular specialism dealing in pregnancy discrimination. 

My clients know they will always receive no-nonsense, practical solutions to all their employment law and human resources problems.

With extensive experience resolving employment disputes, I’m an accomplished negotiator and advocate and represent clients in Employment Tribunals and in the County Court, as well as conducting complicated and high value cases in the High Court and Employment Appeal Tribunal.

I give regular training, seminars and workshops to clients and local businesses as well as writing on employment law issues in local and national newspapers and magazines.

When not helping working to help my clients, I study for my Masters degree (LLM) in Employment Law and Practice. I am also a Trustee of  Wiltshire Law Centre and help a mentoring scheme for a national legal advice charity for pregnant women and new mothers taking legal action against their employer.

I’m a member of the Employment Lawyers AssociationIndustrial Law SocietyLaw Society and am regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Andrew Egan, Consultant Employment Law Solicitor

I have been a qualified solicitor for over 36 years.

For the last 15 years, I have worked as a specialist  employment solicitor in Newbury covering Berkshire,  Wiltshire,  Hampshire, and Oxfordshire. 

I provide practical guidance, support and advice on all aspects of employment law to individuals and employers, senior managers and HR advisers giving practical advice on risk management, employment policies and procedures as well as dealing with staff problems in the workplace.

As a specialist employment law solicitor, I deal with Employment Tribunals across the country and have featured on BBC Radio Oxford and BBC Radio Swindon. I have also written and continue to write for a local newspaper and various magazines on employment law topics.

My approach minimises the potential for litigation and saves time and costs for business. It is important for me as a lawyer to gain a good understanding of my clients and their business needs.

My clients include national companies and small to medium sized businesses as well as start-up firms. I provide prompt, practical and targeted advice to allow employers to concentrate on running their businesses.
