LAW expands HR services

We are delighted to announce some exciting developments at Law At Work.  Effective from 22nd September 2016, LAW has acquired Square Circle HR Ltd.

Square Circle is a specialist HR consultancy established in 2006, based in Glasgow but providing outsourced HR support to businesses throughout the UK. We are equally delighted that the three directors of Square Circle; Roz Wood, Alison Welsh and Christian Potter together with their team of six highly qualified HR consultants will be remaining with LAW. Square Circle HR has an excellent reputation for the quality of the service they provide and we were immediately impressed by the Directors and the personalised client relationships they and their people have developed over the years. Our focus in the coming months will be to ensure that our teams work together to continue to provide the very best support for our clients.

Our core focus remains providing quality employment law and health & safety services utilising dedicated solicitors and health & safety specialists. We have also provided project based HR support to clients when requested through a small HR team. The acquisition of Square Circle will allow us to expand this offering by providing more hands-on HR support on a day to day basis to specialist project work.

The combination of the two businesses will enable both LAW and Square Circle clients to access new services depending on their specific requirements. For Square Circle clients, this is in the form of broader business services in Health & Safety, Legal Services, Insurance and Training while the existing LAW clients can now access a wider range of dedicated hands-on HR support on a retainer or project basis, in addition to the HR Project support we currently offer, all of which will be delivered by highly qualified and experienced HR professionals. 

The existing employment law services we provide remains unchanged with high quality support delivered by named solicitors for our retained clients - business as usual. We believe that this new development means that LAW absolutely is a one-stop shop for all people related matters

If you have any questions or wish to discuss in more detail the enhanced range of services that LAW can now offer, please contact any of the LAW or Square Circle Directors.
