The Premium Boutique
We combine the expertise and global capability of "Big Law" firms with the dynamism and personalised service of a boutique.
Our Purpose - to deliver the right result for you
Our purpose is simple – to resolve difficult people issues wherever in the world they arise, in a way that is right for you. Ultimately, we want to make our clients’ businesses run more smoothly and ensure that their interactions with lawyers are more user-friendly and commercially-focused.
We advise on all aspects of employment law including: complex ER issues, litigation, M&A projects, partnership issues, incentives and tax and immigration. And as a part of Littler, we are able to handle client projects around the globe, offering a single point of contact if that is what you need.
What Makes us Different?
We focus on achieving your objectives in a way that fits your risk appetite and values. In our view a successful outcome is the one that works best for you.
We understand that in employee relations issues, legal risk is only one element. The psychology of the relationship with the employee and other risks such as PR, cultural and regulatory risk are often more important.
That's why we spend time understanding your priorities so that we can give you practical, tailored recommendations, not just a range of legal options.
Meet our experienced and market-leading team of talented, creative and approachable people.
As well as being rated as the UK’s leading employment law firm for businesses, we operate globally as part of Littler, the largest global employment law firm for employers. With more than 1,800 lawyers practising across 28 countries in over 100 offices, Littler serves as the single source solution provider to the global employer community.
Being part of Littler enhances our ability to handle multi-country employment matters and to provide clients with global legal services and a single point of contact.

We compete on the quality of our advice, our service and our distinctive approach, but that doesn’t mean we follow the crowd when it comes to pricing. We offer a variety of fee options, guided by three key principles: Certainty, Value and Choice.
We are always happy to discuss alternative fee arrangements and in developing fee structures, we have looked at how businesses in other industries charge. For example, from the mobile phone sector we have developed different volume discount fee options.

GQ|Littler was set up to be different from other law firms. Our culture values a caring attitude, openness, flexibility and excellence and has enabled us to attract and retain highly talented lawyers who want to do cutting edge work in a rewarding environment.
