Why do I use Paris Smith for my employment law advice?  I use them because they always offer timely, honest and pragmatic advice which results in us being able to make decisions necessary for the business from an employment law perspective.  I have worked with David Roath and Clive Dobbin for over ten years and know that when I phone them up they will listen and act in a professional and friendly way whether it is for general employment law advice or something more complicated. The firm also supports us by offering excellent training seminars which ensure we keep well informed of new or changing legislation in the employment law arena.  I have always enjoyed my interactions with the team at Paris Smith and look forward to working with them in the future.

Paris Smith has worked with Southampton Football Club on a number of key projects including the financing and relocation to St Mary’s, Intellectual Property Rights, Concert Planning, Employment and Licensing.

- Southampton FC

Our 4 large primary schools converted to becoming a Multi Academy Trust in April 2015. Despite being allocated a ‘DFE Guide’ we were immensely grateful for the guidance and support provided by Paris Smith. Prompt and invaluable advice was given, particularly around buildings and land acquisition, TUPE and the Funding Agreement. They steered us smoothly to a successful conversion and costs matched exactly what had been originally quoted. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to other schools.
