Training and Seminars

I have had the pleasure of working with the team at Dixcart Legal for over 8 years. Mel Smith has been instrumental in the success of our quarterly employment law seminars; her ‘straight talking’ and insightful legal presentations are so popular with our clients that they return time and time again More  Rebecca Bannerman, Director – Amber Employment Services Limited


Training can play a vital role in saving time and money. At Dixcart Legal we offer bespoke training to suit the needs of a particular organisation. Examples of training topics we cover are: 

  • Bribery Act and anti-corruption
  • Business exit strategies
  • Negotiating commercial contracts
Employment and HR
  • Company policies and procedures
  • Contracts of employment
  • Dealing with absences
  • Discrimination issues
  • Grievances
  • Dismissal – getting it right
  • Hiring and firing senior employees – how to protect your business
  • Recruitment
  • Handling redundancies

This is not an exhaustive list as each course is tailored to address the individual concerns and requirements of a particular  business.

Training usually takes place at our clients’ premises, although, if preferred, it can be held at our offices in Addlestone.


Dixcart Legal lawyers often present at seminars.  Employment Law is generally the main area of interest. This is due to the fact that Employment Law changes so frequently and it is so important to ensure that the correct procedures are in place for work to be carried out as effectively and efficiently as possible.

Our approach is to encourage participation from delegates. We aim to provide a friendly environment so that people feel comfortable in taking an active part.
