Lyons Davidson has particular experience of the sectors outlined below.

Health and Social Care

We focus on providing care sector clients with the employment law support they really need – no-nonsense practical advice, aligned to the objectives of their business.  We know the pressures of this sector (inherited HR issues, regulatory requirements, TUPE) and understand the need to effectively manage HR issues as they arise.

With a proven track record in defending care sector clients against costly Employment Tribunal disputes, we particularly understand the complex disciplinary and grievance issues that owners and managers in the care sector are faced with, and we provide the right commercially targeted advice that will save you time and money.

Financial Services and Insurance

Our clients in the financial services and insurance sectors form the core of Lyons Davidson’s business and we have over 40 years’ experience of working with many household names.

We understand the employment problems that can arise in this sector, which can eat up your time when you should be focusing on delivering to your customers. Therefore, we provide advice that allows you to concentrate on what really matters to you and your business.

Professional Services

We represent a broad range of clients from this sector, including accountants, surveyors, building professionals and other firms of solicitors.

We understand that your employees are key to your service delivery. We recognise your need to ensure that employment issues do not impact upon the quality service that you provide to your clients. We know how to work with you to deliver the results that matter.


With experience of acting for over 40 institutions, we have particular strength in the FE sector.  We have an understanding of the particular challenges and issues you face.  We know that against this background it is essential for you to have effective control of your employee issues, ensuring that you are able to focus on delivering results for your institution and your students.
