About Us

Martin & Co was established in Manchester by John Martin in 1999. John had previously held senior positions in large firms, but wanted to create Manchester’s first specialist  employment solicitors, as he wanted to offer a very personal service on employment matters at very competitive rates. We continue to do this and have won many plaudits from both clients and competitors along the way. The Legal 500 directory has consistently rated us as a leading employment solicitors firm for the last 15 years.


We are relatively unique, as we specialise exclusively in employment law, which enables us to be at the cutting edge of developments in employment law. We also handle nearly all of our own advocacy in the employment tribunal rather than involve a barrister at the last minute, which means that the client benefits from continuity throughout a case. This is something which our clients appreciate greatly in terms of how we deliver our specialist employment law services.


We advise in respect of all aspects of employment law in Manchester and throughout the whole north west region. We regularly appear in the employment tribunals in Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds and farther afield bringing and defending employment law claims.


We act for both companies and individuals in respect of employment matters, and indeed the split is about half and half. This allows us to see things from both perspectives, which gives us an advantage.


In terms of individuals, we act for all levels of employee in employment law matters, from company directors downwards, and advise on all aspects of employment law including executive terminations, compromise/settlement agreements, discrimination claims and unfair dismissal claims in the employment tribunal.


In terms of employers, we act for a major charity with over 1000 employees, a very significant transport provider, a number of further education colleges and a number of schools with Academy status. We also act for many SME’s in sectors like construction, IT, printing, manufacturing and packaging. Regardless of the sector, they all have one thing in common, which is that they all require employment law advice of the highest order.


Many of our clients have been very loyal to us over the years and are happy to provide references. However, in the unlikely event that you are not happy with our service, then because we are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA number 647441), you have the right to complain to the Legal Ombudsman, but in the first instance you should put your concerns in writing and firstly give us the opportunity to resolve any issue.


We offer excellent value for money in terms of fees, and we are happy to undertake work underwritten by a legal expenses insurer. We do not charge for a first telephone discussion and often charge a fixed fee for a  meeting so you know exactly where you stand, so give us a call on 0161 833 9266 or email info@martinandcosolicitors.co.uk if you have an employment law  issue.
