Welcome to AN LAW

AN LAW is a City-based niche employment practice, which provides first class expertise and practical solutions in a cost effective manner. Clients are located throughout London, the Home Counties and beyond.

UK employment law is evolving at a rapid pace. Given the frequent changes, it is essential that employers keep up to date to reduce risk and ensure the smooth running of their organisations. Equally, in unexpected and often difficult situations, individuals need to be confident that they are receiving the best possible advice.
