employment solicitors in london

Didlaw is a niche discrimination law firm specialising in the rights of people with disabilities and long-term health conditions in the workplace. We are employment lawyers in London. Our name D-I-D- law signals our special interest in Disability, Illness and Discrimination. Many of our clients have suffered mental illness because of work stressors and are treated poorly by their employers because of it. Others have been managing health conditions for many years but suddenly hit a roadblock. We are here to defend you and your position. To get you back on track.

We also deal with other related workplace issues such as stress at work, harassment and bullying, sexual harassment. The rights of working women and working mums are hugely important to us. All too often we see women demoted and treated detrimentally following pregnancy and maternity and this can lead to mental illness too. This should never happen, it is unlawful employee discrimination. Our society has made some progress on these issues but not nearly enough.

We specialise in these areas, so we have a depth of expertise that is unrivalled. We’re a small firm but we punch above our weight with regular appearances in all courts and tribunals including the High Court and the Supreme Court. We’re passionate about these issues and fighting for our clients. Our lawyers are first class: the best in the business, working for you. We are employee lawyers.

We are winners. We get results. In the shortest possible timeframe and with as little extra stress for our clients as possible. We find solutions so that you can focus on more positive things.

Our world view is based on a very simple premise: providing legal advice and solutions for our clients but supporting and encouraging you along the way, helping you deal with conflict and distress. We understand the stress of any dispute. Our aim is to get you through it with our support. This is not just law: we care. We work for your benefit not ours and we provide legal services with an added dimension: the human touch.

Our law firm is founded on being employment lawyers in London who –

  • have a unique depth of experience & expertise in the areas we advise on
  • are approachable & advise our clients in a clear & constructive way
  • making the legal experience less stressful for our clients

Why choose didlaw?

employee lawyers in london

We are different from other employee lawyers in London and regularly take over cases from other law firms who are unable to offer our unique client-focused approach. Being smaller means, we don’t lose the personal service. When you are in crisis this support is critical. Most employment law solicitors cannot get close to our service levels or our expertise in health-related work issues.

Here’s what some of our clients have to say about how we work and why we are the best employment lawyers for employees:

“A huge thank you once again. You are genuine down to earth people who actually care for their clients. That really stood out for me. I would heartily recommend you.”

“Legal advice that was genuinely accessible underpinned by a deep insight into my needs as a client. When seeking advice, I was pretty vulnerable as I was suffering from mental illness. I felt I had the weight of my employment law issue on my shoulders. Along with my other struggles, it was just too much. I felt as if the weight was lifted as soon as I spoke with Karen. I thought: “This is someone I can trust. She sees me as a whole person. She knows what she’s doing. She cares, understands my needs and will fight for my best interests”. Not only did I end up with a much better outcome than I would have without her advice, I believe being able to hand off this weighty issue aided my recovery. Karen and her firm are a rare find. I cannot recommend them highly enough!”

We are didlaw. Committed to changing the world one client at a time. We are employee solicitors in London because disability discrimination matters. So too mental health issues at work, bullying, harassment and stress, sex discrimination, sexual harassment, maternity and pregnancy discrimination. We also deal with disability income protection, involving both group income protection and tax free termination payments.

When you are choosing employment lawyers or employment solicitors in London you have to be sure that they have your best interests at heart. Everything we do is aimed at making things better for you. We act in your best interests not ours. The trust our clients have in us as employee rights lawyers is well-placed and honestly deserved. You only have to look at our client testimonials to appreciate this. We also won’t ever take on a case that is hopeless and will be upfront and honest with you from the start.

Our MD solicitor Karen Jackson, previously shortlisted for Woman Lawyer of the Year, is a leading expert in disability discrimination. Read more about her here. Chambers & Partners call her “a foremost expert in disability discrimination claims for senior employees” with “an encyclopaedic knowledge and complete mastery of this area of law”. Karen has handpicked her team of exceptional lawyers to carry on her good work and to ensure that the service our clients receive is the same unparalleled service across the firm. From your first phone call to us, you will see the difference.

For 2021 we are listed in The Times Best Law Firms.
