Hewitts Solicitors can offer legal, human resources and business advice to SME’s across the Tees Valley.
With over 100 members of staff, we operate in specialist teams across our 4 offices based in Darlington, Bishop Auckland, Newton Aycliffe and Stockton-on-Tees.
Our legal experts are already assisting a number of local SME’s through providing advice, support and representation in the following practice areas:
With strict social distancing measures and Perspex screens in place, all our offices are currently open to the public, to cater for those clients that prefer face to face contact. Alternatively, we can facilitate meetings and interviews through online formats including Zoom, Skype and Microsoft Teams. We also offer free initial telephone consultations to all clients and potential clients.
Examples of the work we have undertaken includes advising a local service provider on business structure and employment laws in order to ensure the business could continue to operate through the COVID-19 crisis whilst maintaining staffing levels and avoiding lay-offs or redundancies.
In situations where this has been unavoidable, we have represented businesses and employees dealing with redundancy situations and preparing and advising on employee settlement agreements.
Our commercial property team have advised a number of landlords and tenants on how to deal with the lockdown restrictions and deferment of rent during the current pandemic and what measures are to be taken in the event of a future lockdown.
More information about Hewitts and the additional services we offer can be found on our website www.hewitts.co.uk, as well as our Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter social media platforms.
