Edward Pearce

Employment and HR advice

I qualified as a solicitor in 1998 and joined the predecessor to Markel Law in 1999. I specialise in non-contentious employment matters, including drafting contracts of employment, negotiating compromise agreements, assisting with the implementation of disciplinary exercises and redundancy programmes and delivering training and seminars on employment law to managers and HR professionals.


“Employee issues can be a minefield, but thanks to Edward Pearce, any issues that we have had to deal with have been done so with a safe and reassuring hand by our side. The service provided is second to none no matter whether this issue or question is a simple one or a complex one and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the service to anyone.”

“Since 2005, your firm has assisted us with all matters relating to Employment law. In the 11 years we have only had 1 very minor tribunal claim. This is all thanks to the tireless dedication, passion and commitment of Edward Pearce, who took the trouble to understand our business needs and how we operate and is thus able to offer us the best solution in each instance. Edward is one of the reasons our company has grown from 16 staff in 2005 to around 236 today. He, together with his colleague, John Waring we are forever indebted to for always assisting us with our numerous requests. I would always recommend their expertise to anyone requiring employment assistance.”
