Employment Law - Transgender Discrimination
After working for my employer for some 22 years of loyal service I was made redundant without any due notice or suitable settlement agreement. I was in a total shock and dismay with the company attempting to bully me into taking the unsatisfactory settlement. After contacting A City Law Firm they arranged a meeting with myself they immediately made me feel at ease and took over the negotiation with my former employers, they were extremely professional and efficient and achieved a good settlement for minimum cost to myself. As a member of the LGBT community I would fully recommend them and although I hope never to need them again I would certainly consult them in the future should the case arise. 2017

LR- Employment Law
Going to work had become unbearable and I was deeply unhappy. I knew I was being bullied and treated very unfairly, but felt powerless to take any action. My partner and I decided it was time to find a solicitor, who would be sympathetic to my concerns and worries. I found A City Law Firm online and received a quick response to my initial email. After speaking to Karen and Felicity, I felt immediately reassured that my treatment was unacceptable, and there was appropriate action that could be taken. I was in regular contact with Felicity throughout this process, and found her to be very understanding and supportive during this difficult time. I am happy I took the time to find A City Law Firm, who achieved a satisfactory and fair outcome for me. My confidence has been restored and I look forward to my future and working with pride again. My sincere and heartfelt thanks to A City Law Firm. 2017

“If you are looking for a diligent legal team who listen before charging and advise with your best interests at heart then I can thoroughly recommend. If you want to know if your case has merit or is a waste of money then I would feel strongly that City Law would advise accordingly “
