Providing HR & employment law support

Why Choose JMA?

There are many HR and legal advisers out there – so why choose us? We are a specialist employment practice; it’s all we do!

We are unique in the way that we combine our expert legal knowledge with our practical experience of HR. Hence the name ‘HR & Legal’. We believe that the two disciplines complement each other and, together with the added benefit of our immigration expertise, we are able to offer you the rounded service you require.

Established in 2009 with a view to offering clients the benefit of an approachable, responsive, pragmatic and commercial service and our core values remain at the centre of our approach to all matters, whether we are advising you as an individual or an employer.

Pragmatic and Approachable

We are regularly praised for our commercial and pragmatic approach which gets efficient and successful results. We understand the pressures created by HR and employment issues; both their spontaneity and urgency. We ensure that you feel able to share these pressures with us easily. We also ensure that our advice to you is free from legal jargon and delivered in a friendly and practical manner.


We pride ourselves on ensuring that you know when we are available should you need our support on a new or an ongoing matter. We know how frustrating it can be not to be able to get hold of those you want to speak to when you are already feeling under pressure.


We will meet you where it suits you best; whether at your offices or elsewhere. We will happily come to you in order to preserve your time during the working day or even after hours if this suits you better or the matter is urgent. Using current technology, we can deal with matters remotely for you so you can access our advice wherever we are and whenever you need us.

Cost Sensitive

We believe that you won’t find better value for money. We look for ways to keep your costs to a minimum without compromising the quality of service we offer. We will advise you upfront of your likely fees in a transparent way to ensure there are no surprises when it comes to your legal bills. We can be flexible in terms of how you wish to use us and will offer fixed fees where it seems reasonable and would be in your best interests to do so.
