We provide a value for money,
commercially-aware and timely service.

The firm was established to provide specialist employment law services, predominantly to employers. Our offices are based in Bournemouth & Lymington but we act for clients across the South and throughout the UK.

About Kemp Jones

The firm was founded in 2010 by Rayner Jones and Michelle Kemp.

We wanted to set up a niche employment law firm focusing on employers/companies in the private sector.

Since 2010 we have consolidated our position as one of the leading employment law practices on the south coast.

We have expanded our client base nationally and to include a number of public sector employers.

A number of legal and accountancy firms locally and nationally use us for their own Employment work.

Our clients operate in many different sectors including education, leisure and tourism, aviation and defence, heavy manufacturing, accountancy, telecoms, retail, financial services and pharmaceuticals.

Our Approach

Our whole focus is on making sure our clients achieve their goals. The advice we give will be concise, pragmatic and not legalistic. We will work to your timeframe – if a matter is urgent, it will be dealt with immediately. You will be able to reach us whenever you need us, in and out of office hours. Every job will be managed by us conscientiously, every step of the way, from start to finish.

Our leadership team

We started the firm in 2010. At that time we were both working for a large regional law firm and wanted to try something different. We wanted to create a niche firm specialising in Employment law and related areas such as Boardroom and Shareholder disputes, Restrictive Covenant enforcement and Data Protection. We wanted to act mainly for employers, but sometimes for Directors/Senior Managers with complex or high value claims. We have always carried out our own advocacy for clients at hearings.  It is almost always in the best interests of the client for the person who has managed the case throughout and who understands it best, to actually represent the client at the hearing. We have been fortunate to have the opportunity to represent clients in the Employment Appeal Tribunal and Court of Appeal as well as in most of the Employment Tribunals around the UK.
