Guy Salter - Employment and Commercial Litigation

"I have enjoyed working with Guy as he has carefully steered us through the minefield of employment legislation.  He provides thoughtful, pragmatic and helpful advice with a commercial view.  I would not hesitate to recommend him to any other company for employment advice.'

Mr C, Newport

"I had all but given up hope of pursuing my unfair dismissal case until I was introduced to Guy Salter from SME.  Guy has been a real inspiration and has handled my case with great sensitivity, professionalism, perception and deliberation.  I had the benefit of support from Lisa and an incredible Counsel too, thanks to Guy, and it was an amazing team effort that succeeded in securing a positive outcome for me.  Facing a legal system for the first time can be very daunting, but with the support of Guy and his team and their confident and industrious approach to pursuing my case, it certainly lessened the burden and my anxieties.  My sincere thanks and appreciation to you all."

Lynn from Warwickshire
