Emma Reid & Cathy Donald, Ergo Law
Ergo Law is a niche law firm specialising in employment law. We launched in January 2016 and provide specialist advice to businesses and employees on employment law and workplace issues. We spend time getting to know our client’s story and our advice extends beyond the technical application of the law to help employers and employees make decisions that are right for them. We are listeners, translators, counsellors and lawyers.
Since December 2015, the legal profession has had more female than male solicitors but like many other industries, this is not reflected in gender parity at the most senior levels in the profession. We had worked together for several years and decided that 2016 was the perfect time to establish a female owned law firm which looks and sounds different from most traditional law firms.
We have established a practice with compassion and spirit, yet which upholds excellent professional standards and provides the highest quality legal advice. Since our launch we have had the privilege of meeting and advising other female entrepreneurs and have enjoyed supporting them in their businesses.
Ergo Law has experience of dealing with a broad range of industries and with businesses both large and small. We advise on the full range of circumstances where employment law impacts including employment contracts and policies, redundancy, disciplinary and dismissals, absence management, holidays and TUPE. We are skilled in untangling the trickiest of situations and making things feel clearer.
