Cheshire Employment Lawyer Alf Murphy


Alf is our most senior lawyer and the founding director of Employment Law Solutions. His strong attitude towards troublesome employees precedes him and results in many referrals of the nature “you need to talk to Alf, he’ll sort it.”

What is it like to work with Alf?

Jennifer: “Working with Alf is inspiring.  He always throws on his superhero cape and swoops to his client’s rescue, nothing is ever too much trouble for him.”

Kevin: “Working with Alf is an education.  He knows the law inside out and understands the importance of words and their application in documentation and evidence better than anyone I know.”

What is it like to be Alf’s client?

After dismissing a particularly difficult employee, one client simply said: “Alfredo the Great strikes again!


Kevin is highly regarded by our clients, providing the pragmatic solutions that they require and never fails to provide the commercially sound advice they want.

Jennifer:  “Kevin is great at putting client’s at ease. He talks to them in their own language and understands their business like he has been part of it from day one!”

What is it like to be his client?

“We had a difficult employee who we had to dismiss, they had moved address and had not updated us. Kevin provided us with the advice we required to dismiss the employee by text, saving us time and money.  He appreciates the financial pressures on our industry.”

Alf: “Jennifer’s love for the law combined with her tendency to research and understand it is invigorating in the modern world where google tends to be most people’s first port of call.”
