Heminsley is a boutique law firm providing legal advice for employers in respect of their people issues. We specialise in employee related investigations, employment law & litigation, bribery & corruption support and data protection & privacy advice (from prevention to cure) and provide such legal services to employers, large and small, to help them manage their HR and people risk.
Heminsley occupies an unusual space in the market. Its lawyers come from some of the biggest law firms in the country. They’ve had the best of training and have served their time undertaking everything up to the most complex work for the most sophisticated of clients.
In addition to specialising in HR and legal advice for employers, they understand the need for outstanding service and a responsive nature. And they are ready to use all of that experience for your benefit.
Employment Lawyers who help you achieve your business objectives are few and far between. As employee relations issues become ever more difficult, employment law becomes ever more complex.
Our key strength is to help you find a way through those complex and overlapping issues to achieve the end goal your business needs.
Employees are a company’s greatest asset but the legal and regulatory framework under which companies operate mean that they can quickly become a liability.
Our investigators are experienced in dealing with everything from the simplest of employee grievance & disciplinary issues, to data protection, fraud, bribery and regulatory investigations.
Led by an ex-barrister with almost 25 years of employment litigation experience whose tribunal methodology won the prestigious Financial Times award for ‘Innovation in the Delivery of Legal Services’ (on the basis it cut and provided certainty over costs while increasing success rates).
We act for some of the biggest companies in the UK on some of the most complex cases.
We would like to say an enormous thank you to the many clients who provided their anonymous feedback to the Legal 500 team this year and are happy to see the firm's ethos of providing clear unambiguous advice and being readily accessible to our clients shining through in their comments. Thank you!
"Trevor Gibson ensures you work together in a collaborative manner which enables all parties to understand the risks, strengths or weakness of any proposals. He is a very strong negotiator and gains the respect of boards and senior executives"
"Jemma O’Reilly has an exceptional ability when undertaking investigations to expose the real positions and always ensures the issues are addressed"
"The thing I most like about Heminsley is its willingness to roll its sleeves up and muck in. The lawyers don’t give ’50/50 you decide’ advice but will get off the fence and look at practical solutions to often difficult problems. Even though they’re small they’ll give much larger firms a run for their money – in part through their skills & their ability to see through fog"
"Heminsley Law has long been my ‘go-to’ for advice as their team is readily available and provides advice that is clear and unambiguous"
"Trevor Gibson is one of the finest employment lawyers I have ever worked with. Always accessible Trevor makes complex issues seem simple, and exceeds expectations every time. "
"Heminsley Law’s ability to align to the customers’ needs, customise the advice and a constant touchpoint makes them ‘part of the team’. It’s very convenient to engage with the partners at Heminsley Law.

"Heminsley Law is a ‘very sleek set-up’ that is led by Trevor Gibson. It advises companies on a wide range of people risks from employment law to bribery and corruption. The ‘accessible’ team frequently handles high-risk issues from whistleblowing and complex discrimination cases to IR35 bonus claims and the enforcement of restrictive covenants. Jemma O’Reily has an excellent reputation too. Another highlight for the team was Simon Stephen joining the firm from Gowling WLG."
"The service is delivered by a partner who continues as your point of contact, accessibility is excellent which ensures issues are dealt with in a very proactive manner. The team’s strength is its ability to focus on the problems faced and its capability in addressing senior management issues raised during disputes and robustly refute claims in a very proactive manner leaving little opportunity for counter arguments to be raised"
"I have found Heminsley to be a really innovative and personable firm. They give their clients a really top-notch service."
