  • Vital was very professional and knowledgeable in the legal aspects of my settlement agreement. He helped with negotiations and achieved a good outcome which I probably wouldn’t have achieved with a different solicitor. Would highly recommend his services in employment legal matters.

    Vital recognised that I was unfairly dismessed and correctly informed me that I have a high probability of a successful appeal. The appeal went ahead as planned, seamlessly and effectively with a great outcome. Thank you.

  • Highly professional team who looked after my best interests at a time when unexpected change was forced upon me. No ‘legal technical jargon’, just sound advice at a good price. I’d also like to call out Dipa and Vital for their joint efforts – nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended.

    I went to Vital Ruwala at ELS Employment Solicitors last year with my difficult case which recently concluded with a positive outcome and he has been nothing short of amazing. There have been many times when I wanted to give up and walk away due to the stress it had caused me but Vital helped me through it with his support and professional advice. His knowledge and expertise in dealing with cases like this brought me ease. He was always informative and keeping me up to date. I genuinely cannot recommend Vital enough as in my opinion, he is one of the best Employment Lawyers out there. Thank you for everything Vital.

The advice and support they provided was invaluable, based on years of experience and expertise. More than that, I felt hugely supported and reassured at each step. This was a journey that I did not traverse alone and I am grateful for a positive outcome that enabled me and my family to move on.
