A HAMPSHIRE law firm has seen a record number of approaches from business people in the south seeking support in the new year.

Warner Goodman LLP, which has offices in Southampton and Fareham, has seen more people come forward at the start of 2014 for guidance in operating their business and in employment law.

Sarah Whitemore, employment partner for the firm, runs its Peace of Mind package which provides the support.

She said: “With the economic difficulties we have experienced in recent years employers have tightened their belts resulting in low recruitment levels, as well as in-house HR resources and available money to spend on keeping policies up to date being cut.

“Now as employers see the economy start to recover they are planning for growth, and are wary that their old policies may not be fit for purpose. This is precisely what our Peace of Mind package can help with.

“Last year saw a vast amount of employment law changes, and 2014 will be no different, so it’s important for all businesses to be up to date and have access to cost-effective professional advice and guidance, which is precisely what Peace of Mind offers.”
