Osborne & Wise is a boutique employment law firm with a genuinely modern approach. We offer straight forward solutions at an affordable cost.

When coming together as a group of senior lawyers to create Osborne & Wise, we spoke to all our clients and asked them what they look for in a law firm. Based on the feedback we received, we created a progressive business model that places the client experience at the centre of everything we do.

We work with both companies and individuals advising on all aspects of employment law. Our partner led service provides first class, cost effective legal solutions across a broad range of market sectors.

As a part of our flexible approach to billing, in addition to the traditional hourly rates charging set up, we also offer low cost monthly retainers to companies, allowing them to effectively budget their legal costs year on year. Our cost effective business model also allows us to offer more innovative billing structures to best suit an individual’s commercial needs and expectations.
