Why Employers Choose Us


Our clients are our greatest supporters. Ask any one of them and they will tell you that Martin Searle Solicitors care deeply about their situation. We employ some of the country’s most experienced Employment lawyers who work tirelessly to achieve a positive outcome on all their cases. This is the reason some of our former opponents have gone on to hire us, and why employers continue to choose us.

“I have recommended Martin Searle Solicitors to several people because your help and advice was invaluable to me and the emotional support was excellent.”


Having built one of the largest Employment Law Teams in Sussex, our clients benefit from an impressive bank of expertise and tactical know-how. The fact that we represent both employers and employees gives us unique insight and a real strategic advantage – one of the reasons that we win the vast majority of our cases.

Whatever your dilemma, we have the right lawyer for the job. But whereas at traditional firms, each case is assigned to one solicitor alone, we share our expertise and pool our resources. Working as a team ensures our high success rate when bringing and defending Tribunal cases.

“Helpful informative advice from an obvious expert in their field.”


Our services are tailored to your resources and the complexity of your case. We always assign the most appropriate lawyer to a case, not the most expensive one.

If there is a possibility of avoiding Tribunal litigation altogether by exploring a more cost-effective and creative avenue such as a Settlement Agreement or through Workplace Mediation, we strive to do so. This is possible because Fiona Martin is an Accredited Mediator, as well as collaborating with a team of qualified Consultants who provide Human Resources support as well as Dispute Resolution and Mediation Services.

“Given clear advice, costs made very clear.”


Everyone has different priorities and our role is to listen and understand what it is you hope to achieve.

You need to be able to make an informed decision about whether or not to proceed. It is our job to make sense of the law and to make sure you understand all the options available and the potential implications. That is why we provide all clients with clear and straightforward advice from the outset, with our advice provided in writing after the initial consultation.

“You were very helpful, concise and explained everything clearly. Without your help I very much doubt my defence would have been successful.”


You can expect honest and frank advice. If your position is weak, then we will say so. If your defence has limited prospects of success, we will let you know. Our goal is not just to defend the rights of employers by winning cases. It is equally to save our clients the stress and expense of pursuing or defending a lost cause.

“My legal advisers were patient, diligent and above all honest.”


We are confident that if you asked any of our clients, they would tell you that our Employment Law Team genuinely cares about them and their situation. Workplace disputes can be stressful and getting you through this difficult time is often our finest achievement.

“Their caring and totally professional approach emanates from the top down.”
