Employment Solicitors

Chambers O’Neill is a dedicated employment law practice based in Chester and Manchester. We offer a practical, hands-on approach backed up by over 40 years’ experience of providing high quality, expert legal advice to employers and employees.


We have a national client base. We have clients who are based in the North West and North Wales but also clients in Scotland, the rest of Wales and the United States of America. We have appeared in almost every Tribunal hearing centre in the UK.


“Only a small team of two, but both hugely capable. I value their expertise, personal attention and close involvement in matters, as well as their caring for the outcome, which seems to be lacking in the larger firms. I feel confident they are representing the business to the very best of their abilities and not simply generating fees.” (Legal 500 Testimonial 2020)
