Training and Seminars


We act for businesses as well as the people who create, own and invest in them, building long term relationships with our clients to understand the unique challenges and opportunities they face. Our depth of experience and knowledge is focussed on providing practical advice designed to meet all our clients’ business needs.

Individuals & Families

We understand how important your case is, our experienced teams are on hand to provide practical and effective legal advice. With one of the largest teams of lawyers in North Yorkshire we work for wealthy individuals and their families, trusts and family businesses - your needs are at the heart of what we do.


Our Commercial, Residential and Agricultural Property teams have the expertise to help you deal with the opportunities and challenges of the freehold and leasehold real estate market. We have substantial depth of experience of the property world and its demands which gives us the crucial ability to help you achieve your aims.

Resolving Disputes

Disputes are an unavoidable fact of life, but when they happen it is essential to find a quick, effective and practical solution to the situation. Whether your issues are commercial or business related, family or personal, we have the depth of experience, imagination and expertise to help you solve your problems.

Over the years employment law has grown in volume and developed in complexity and anyone would be forgiven for feeling inundated and intimidated by the subject. Running a business or managing any organisation with one or more employee(s) will necessarily bring you face to face with the requirement to navigate the topic in accordance with the many rules and regulations that apply.

Failure to do so will likely lead to the employment tribunal, where you will either have to settle the matter before the tribunal decides it, or take the risk of letting the tribunal decide the outcome. Either way there may be serious consequences for your organisation in terms of time, money, morale and reputation.  So how do you avoid the pitfalls, minimise the risks and maximise your achievements as an employer?

Here at Raworths, we believe that forewarned is forearmed. As with many difficult tasks, employment law matters are better undertaken as a team rather than by an individual.  Our employment solicitors are all experienced and expert in developing, drafting and delivering bespoke training courses and seminars tailored to meet your specific needs.  We believe that being up-to-date and alive to what lies ahead are the key basics when it comes to preparing to meet the challenge of managing the issues that arise from employment law.

All our employment solicitors are based in the Harrogate office but we want to get out and meet you, get to know your business and your training needs. We want to work with you to develop the seminars and training courses that best fit your organisation.  Whether it’s identifying any gaps in your knowledge of employment law, updating you as to new developments in the law or training you and your managers in current ‘best practice’, our employment solicitors will:

  • sit down with you and get to understand your business;
  • explore with you in detail any areas of employment law which you need to know more about;
  • identify the best training strategy to suit the needs of your organisation;
  • develop a bespoke seminar programme to deliver the training you want to the people who need it; and
  • draft user-friendly, easy to follow, plain-English guidance notes to accompany each seminar.

Each year the Raworths Employment Team also presents two unique Employment Seminars in Harrogate. Each Seminar:

  • covers ‘not-to-be-missed’ topical areas of employment law which impact on the day to day management of your business and provides invaluable training by expert employment solicitors in a language that’s easy to understand and practical to apply; and
  • equips you and your business to navigate the employment law mountain with minimum risk and maximum success.
