The complete package

When two well respected businesses combine forces in a bold move, you can anticipate some exciting results. That’s exactly what’s happened in the strategic partnership between Wilson Browne Solicitors and Kettering based HR Solutions, to deliver a comprehensive HR and Employment Law advice service.

The expression “greater than the sum of its parts” is particularly apt. On the one hand there is Wilson Browne Solicitors: winner of Northamptonshire Law Society Large Law Firm Of The Year several times over; awarded ‘Highly Commended’ by the Law Society of England & Wales; possessing many teams in the prestigious Legal 500 (a who’s who of the legal profession).

On the other, HR Solutions - experts in outsourced HR consultancy, delivering flexible, practical employment support to businesses in addition to consultancy packages, business support functions and ad-hoc services that allow businesses to focus on… doing business.

About the businesses

At first it may seem a bit counterintuitive that 2 providers of HR and Employment Law advice would join forces but scratch beneath the surface and it makes good sense not just for them, but for local and regional businesses too.

The team at Wilson Browne Solicitors deliver expert legal advice to firms of all sizes – from multinational PLCs to SMEs and larger Owner-Managed businesses. Led by Head of Team Jennie Jahina, businesses can rest assured that they’re in good hands. Adopting a pragmatic and commercial approach, the team focuses on avoiding disputes in the first place through the adoption of best practice and having the right policies and procedure in place. More strategically, they assist with restructuring and reorganisations, as well as operating at boardroom level - regularly helping to resolve boardroom disputes.

HR Solutions is the brainchild of Carol Ann Guilford who left a successful career in Formula 1 to start her own business, having seen a demand for a comprehensive outsourced offering. Now led by Greg Guilford who has a track record in advising blue-chip organisations, HR Solutions have a truly extensive portfolio – HR services, e-learning, payroll, recruitment, employee development, employee benefit programmes including pension and healthcare, general HR outsourcing, risk audit…and more.

What’s the thinking?

In simple terms, benefits, benefits, benefits or to put it another way, if the question is “what’s in it for clients” (or potential clients) of both firms, then the answer is that by joining forces, the 2 businesses can deliver an extensive “full service” package to fulfil the needs of businesses of all sizes whether multinational or SME.

Both firms have an expansive range of services that taken in isolation would be considered ‘comprehensive’: by combining offerings, the range becomes truly all-encompassing - the proverbial “one-stop-shop”, with scalable solutions that will suit all pockets.

Kevin Rogers, Chairman of Wilson Browne Solicitors commented:

“The last 5 or so years has seen us continue to build on the success of our range of advice for ‘private client’ (individuals) whilst simultaneously growing our Commercial Law provision through organic growth and acquiring new talent at

all levels.”

Jennie Jahina, Head of Employment added:

“Joining forces with HR Solutions on our Employment Law provision was an obvious choice given their strong reputation in the market and their comprehensive but complementary range of solutions – we’re all really excited about it.”

Greg Guilford, CEO of HR Solutions is equally enthusiastic, adding:

“When I first started talking to Kevin and the team at Wilson Browne Solicitors it was evident from the outset that both businesses could combine their strengths to produce something exceptional in terms of delivering expert HR and Employment Law advice. The best thing of all is that we can cover the entire spectrum of business types and sizes as both the offerings, and the resources, already exist.”
