Areas of Specialism: Employment and HR Law

Amy is a Partner in the firm’s employment team.  She provides practical and commercial advice to businesses on all areas of HR and employment law, specialising in complex restructures, reorganisations and business transfers.

She particularly enjoys getting to know her clients so her advice is tailored to meet their individual needs.  She is a firm believer that prevention is better (and cheaper!) than a cure, and encourages employers to contact her at an early stage of the process when a more favourable outcome can often be achieved.

What Our Clients Say About Amy
I found Amy Edwards especially helpful in resolving my staff redundancy issue. She was also very efficient in keeping me informed of developments, what actions to take and when.
Mr G M, Redcliffe Training Associates Limited
What Our Clients Say About Amy
We have worked with the Tollers Employment Law and HR team for several years and we are very happy with the service that they provide. The team really understands our business and are always responsive, and informative in helping us with advice. I would thoroughly recommend Tollers, and it is a pleasure to work with them.

What Our Clients Say About Amy
Amy and her team at Tollers supported us recently with the TUPE process when we merged with a neighbouring GP practice with a team of 20 people transferring over their employment to us.  Amy guided us through the various stages that we needed to follow – with advice not only covering the legal musts of the process but also the softer advice, based on experience, that helped us have the right engaging conversations with the team which will help us have the best possible outcome for the combined organisation – which is to retain the whole time and give them a bright future in our combined organisation. Such a process is naturally always unsettling for staff (however safe their role is) and Amy’s advice helped us prepare for this well. Toller’s support meant that we could approach this process knowing we were not only covering the legal requirements but were also adopting best practice for the staff and our organisation.

What Our Clients Say About Amy
Brian Auld, Partner at Tollers, with his Team, took on the legal aspect of selling our 100-year-old family business.  Brian’s approachability, kind and caring nature, along with his wealth of experience, professionalism and pragmatic approach made him the perfect person to take on the sale of our small business for us.  Brian navigated and advised us through the process, ensuring our timeline was kept on track and, at times of emotion, was a calming, reassuring and steadying influence.  Brian’s Team was also very diligent in the preparation of the documentation and getting the deal over the line, within a relatively short time frame, meeting our deadline perfectly. As Tollers’ slogan says, we had ‘exceptional people, exceptional service and exceptional delivery’. Thank you, Brian and Team.
