We are committed to providing friendly, considerate and practical advice to help you and your family plan effectively for the future in an efficient and sympathetic manner.
With frequent developments to employment legislation, it’s essential that you as an employer are fully compliant in order to minimise the risk of disputes and increase staff retention. Being up to date with new policies and procedures is vital; however, as a business owner it’s likely that you may not have the time to deal with this yourself. At Dutton Gregory, our employment solicitors offer on-going support to companies large and small to ensure they stay on the right side of the law.
As well as this, we provide advice for employees who are facing unfair treatment at work. From unreasonable dismissal to discrimination in the workplace, our solicitors in Chandler's Ford are committed to protecting the rights of the workforce.
Premises are a vital component to any successful business; however, there is a lot to consider when deciding where your company should operate from.

As well as commercial, Dutton Gregory hosts a team of specialist residential property solicitors whose job it is to facilitate the conveyancing process for both buyers and sellers. Whether you are a first time buyer or a landlord with a property portfolio, you can rely on our team to ensure your move is smooth and no stone is left unturned.
If you and your partner have made the tough decision to get a divorce, your first move should be to seek legal advice from a qualified professional. Here at Dutton Gregory, our experience in family law allows us to tackle each case with ease, assisting you through negotiations to protect your interests and reach a fair agreement.

If you have suffered from an injury as a result of another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. The only way to find out is to speak to a specialist personal injury solicitor, who will be able to assess the viability of your claim from the evidence you provide. If you are due compensation, our solicitors in Chandler's Ford will undertake a thorough investigation to help build your claim and do what it takes to secure the outcome you deserve.
