Managing people can be challenging and the rules and regulations surrounding employment law are complex. Having spent a considerable portion of my career as the co-owner and director of Law At Work, I am well aware of the need for quick, commercial advice from lawyers and other professionals to allow me to get on with running my business.
I am Donald MacKinnon, a Scottish solicitor with over 25 years' experience in employment law and HR practice and I am recognised as an Accredited Specialist in Employment Law by The Law Society of Scotland. I was a director and co-owner of Law At Work Ltd., a boutique employment law, HR and health & safety consultancy until the sale of the business to Marlowe plc.
During my career, I have provided advice and support throughout the UK to businesses ranging from five to 20,000 employees, in a variety of sectors, and have extensive experience in supporting organisations and HR teams with complex employee related issues.
I’m here to lighten the load off your shoulders providing practical advice to help you avoid conflict and litigation wherever possible. Where that is unavoidable, I can support clients in employment tribunals throughout the UK as well as the Employment Appeal Tribunal. I’m an honest and positive professional whose first priority is always the interests of my clients. I’ve been serving loyal clients throughout the UK for over 25 years and would be delighted to discuss with you how I can support your business.
