About David McCrum

david mccrum

I am a specialist employment solicitor with over 20 years’ experience in all aspects of employment law. 

Ever since I set up my business in 2001 my aim has been to understand any employment law needs that you may have, and to provide appropriate solutions.  What drives me is helping employers and employees resolve difficult employment situations, and you can see the range of services I provide by clicking on the appropriate tab below.

My background is that of an in-house employment lawyer, working from 1988 until August 2001 for the General Motors group of companies, based at the Vauxhall offices in Luton.

Since August 2001 I have been practising employment law as a sole private practitioner, at first maintaining Vauxhall and other GM companies as clients, and having now developed a wider employer and employee client base spread across the country including providing advice to major food manufacturing operations.
