The Lawspeed helpline gives rapid answers to questions across the recruitment, employment, compliance and dispute spectrum.

Manned by a team of expert lawyers, this highly acclaimed service is available from 0900 to 1730 each working day.

Costs are charged on a time basis, minute by minute (rather than 6 minute or 15 minute blocks as is normal in the legal industry). Once registered as a client, no retainer or minimum usage is required.
