We are also proud to offer two exciting new initiatives exclusively to Equitoy members.
Our legal partners, Chadwick Lawrence LLP have put together a number of benefits exclusively for Equitoy Members.
Chadwick Lawrence LLP offer a discounted hourly rate of £150 plus VAT to all Equitoy members. This special discount applies to employment, corporate and commercial, commercial property, intellectual property and litigation. They also offer a percentage discount for directors and owner managers in relation to private client work (including conveyancing and matrimonial work).
Employers Support Pack (ESP)
Chadwick Lawrence LLP provide a scheme at a fixed cost (renewable annually) to their business clients which provides the following key benefits:
- A review of all existing contract and policy related document and systems
- A redrafting exercise specific to your business and its needs
- Allocation of an employment law solicitor to your business
- Unlimited support via telephone and email on employment law matters
- Free access to training and seminars
- No lengthy tie-in
Over half of SME managers lack formal training in HR management, which often leads to employment issues causing a distraction to their core duties. Chadwick Lawrence LLP offer the above service at a special discounted rate to Equitoy members.
Subsidised Safety Audits
Our safety adviser, Clive Shelton, will review and advise upon your current safety systems and procedures as well as carrying out a product review and highlighting non conformity.
These visits would normally cost more than the fee for a year's membership to Equitoy and could save members thousands in legal costs or product write offs, thats why it pays to be an Equitoy member!
