Bircham links up with HR consultancy

Bircham Dyson Bell has joined forces with an HR consultancy in a bid to up its employment capacity amid sweeping?changes?to discrimination legislation.

The three-strong team at Marshall-James, a specialised HR outfit which advises public and private sector employers, will work with Bircham on pitches and current and new business to offer clients a one-stop shop.”[Marshall-James] gives advice on restructuring, training, negotiation and resolution of disputes. We’re dealing with similar issues from a legal perspective,” said Bircham employment partner Marc Meryon.

He said this would enable Bircham to provide its clients, which include transport, communications and aviation businesses, with good industrial relations knowledge. “Some clients have no experience dealing with trade unions,” he added.
