Jorge Sierra, Human Resources Director - NVT Inc

"I am Human Resources Director at Network Video Technologies a wholesaler of electrical equipment, specialising in security control equipment and systems. Based in California, we use Mel Smith and her team as our advisers for English Employment Law. This is necessary because we have a sales team in the UK.

We have worked with Mel Smith for over ten years and continue to do so as we find her proactive and effective. Mel appreciates the realities of running a business and the need for a swift and accurate response on legal issues. The service is commercially orientated and practical with the team assisting us on contentious and non-contentious employment issues.

A considerable amount of advice is provided to us over the phone, which suits the speed of response that we require on a number of matters. The lawyers are also heavily involved in the drafting of documents, the majority being contracts.

I would not hesitate to recommend the team at Hillbrow House for advice on English employment issues and would add that they are extremely thorough, professional and also enjoyable to work with.”
