Dear Karen

Just a short note to thank you again for your excellent advice and service recently. You very much put my mind at rest and advised me wisely and professionally on the matter in hand. The matter was settled satisfactorily and I am appreciative of your knowledge and prompt attention.
Kind Regards

As the Principal of Hillingdon Outdoor Activities Centre I have always been reassured that expert help on employment law from Bulfin and Co is just a phone call away. When required, the advice has always been clear, concise and  appropriate to the issues we need to address. I can whole heartedly recommend this firm.

Anne Yeo, Finance Director at Plasser UK Ltd

As a hospitality professional our HR needs are varied and unique as we have to deal with a lot of challenging situations in the workplace. One of the key problems we face are high staff turnover and managing people from various ethnic backgrounds and diversity in the work place.

It is indeed with great pride that I say that Karen has consistently provided a first class service with regards to all our HR requirements right from recruitment, employee handbooks, keeping abreast with the employment laws, NMW legislation etc. Last but not the least she and her firm of capable staff has also painstakingly defended us with all the preparations leading up to a tribunal.

HR is a minefield and as a restaurant operator one needs to focus on customer needs and improving the bottom line and keeping the work force happy. This is where I am happy to have Karen as my support and mentor to guide me through the maze of employment laws and legislations

Robert Ashby, General Secretary TACT

Thank you for your time and advice. You made the process very easy to understand and I have felt re-assured throughout.


I first heard of Karen Bulfin in the late 1990’s. Having introduced her employment law services to the small company I worked for, it wasn’t long before I was seeking her advice on how to deal with a difficult situation caused by a Director suspending an employee without due cause. Karen gave clear advice on the legalities and the best way to tackle the matter meaning it was resolved quickly and effectively.

I had been very impressed by her expertise, so in need of employment advice recently I approached her. As this was a matter that was personal to me I was pleased to find Karen to be compassionate as well as extremely professional. She had a very level headed approach, giving me clear options with expert legal opinion, allowing me to decide my actions.

With my eye on costs it was necessary to continue the case without day to day reference to Karen, but because she was available should I have needed I was still confident that I had the best legal advice.

I cannot thank her enough for her considered opinion and caring support that truly gave me the impetus and methods to achieve a suitable conclusion.
Having now dealt with Karen as employer and employee I would certainly recommend her services in either case.
