Worst decision I ever made. Was made to feel it would help save me time etc and it didn't. 1 star as contracts are good, but you can get them cheaper than being locked in for 3 yrs for hundreds of pounds. On top of this Covid is really hurting my company as it works with schools and they are not letting outsiders in. I asked for help (few months break) as no money coming in at all and they basically said I can go jump. If your a small company AVOID in my opinion, it's just to much financial risk. I am reminded that any company that locks you in probably is not good enough for you to want to stay.

If you are currently in a contract, give notice now so that you don't accidentally roll over. They will only send you one email reminder about the rollover and should you miss that because you are busy running your business, you're in for another (very long) period. They won't call you to discuss your rollover renewal and ask whether you're happy. After they receive your notice they will say they need to talk to you in order to "process your notice", but just insist in writing it is your right and you want it logged. Once your notice is processed and you start approaching the end of the agreement, you will receive plenty of calls from your dedicated account manager (where were they before?) that wants to make sure you're happy. They will also quote you a lot cheaper prices when you only have a day left on your contract. This is, however, not the biggest issue we experienced with Citation. When we signed up, The Client Agreement was in the name of our biggest venue. The agreement form, however, also has a line for "Subsidiaries and Associated Companies included in this Agreement" and there we specified our second, smaller venue, albeit a different legal entity, but such was the advice. The agreement asked for a number of employees and the number of venues (2 in our case). Here's my second bit of advice: do not specify other venues/sites/companies under one agreement under any circumstances. We sold the bigger site when we had a year and a half left on the agreement. The account manager that emerged around that time categorically refused to discuss a reduction of the monies charged although it was very clear that 2/3 of the employees were gone as was the bigger site, resulting in Citation carrying out only half of the agreed site visits and having their workload and HR risks reduced by 2/3 also. That was of course a short-sighted decision from the account manager's part because it sealed the deal that after having been a customer of Citation for 6 years, they lost our business. Any provider that does not make adjustments for the partial sale of their client's portfolio does not deserve your custom, or your future business that will be growing again. Now, as to the actual services provided, they were decent at times, diabolically clueless at other times as the HR advisors sometimes struggled to grasp the ins and outs of a fast-paced hospitality business. We did, however, get by even though they completely forgot the main client/other company subsidiary set-up that was created on the initial contract so that all paperwork issued was constantly made out to the wrong business name during the last two years of the agreement. It can't be that hard to remember "Business name 1, business address 1" and "Business name 2, business address 2", can it? Especially if you insist on charging for them both despite the client having disposed of Business 1? And not even that pushed me to write a one star review, until now. We were in a contract with Citation Ltd for a 36 + 36 month period. I called the finance team to query the last payment. It's too long to explain here but basically, following all 73 payments taken, the last payment is a gross overcharge. I was simply told "that's the last payment of the contract". I then emailed the account manager asking for an explanation of all payments, but nothing. I then spent time myself breaking down the periods and matching them to payments taken according to the contract period. Another person from the finance team emails me to say I am "complicating things" and (wait for it!) "this is how contracts work"... without providing any explanation or fiscal evidence! So far I have had three people just insist that that's the last payment and that is it. So lazy that they don't even bother to go through your payment history. Our payment saga is to be continued. Only go with Citation if you have more money than wits and you don't learn from other people's mistakes!

Philip Landau represented me when he was with Landau, Zeffertt, and Weir (Oct-Dec 2013). I am a US citizen and I was working in England on a Tier 2 visa sponsored by my UK employer. I had submitted a formal grievance for what I contended was harassment, bullying, defamatory performance ratings, and discrimination along with citing contractual breaches in Duty of Care (Health and Safety Act + Equality Act). I believe that my grievance was whistleblowing. Landau immediately recommended negotiating an "enhanced" settlement agreement and not follow my legally guaranteed right to follow the grievance procedures under law and contract. A year after I left the UK I submitted a subject access request citing the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). I received the contents of my personnel file which had inaccurate defamatory documents supporting a performance based settlement agreement. Can a sponsored Tier 2 visa holder simultaneously be sponsored and placed on a performance improvement plan (PIP)? Philip Landau has been asked many times to explain if legal and compliant processes and documents were used to process my termination from employment. He has remained silent. I have reported to ActionFraud, but there has been no investigation. This is a true story. In terms of the 12-month limit for review, in September 2018 my former employer bypassed the Confidentiality terms of the referenced settlement contract which provided whistleblower protection and filed criminal defamation claims for my blogging in Thailand, where I now live. (My Thai wife was also sponsored as a Tier 2 dependent and I believe was also owed a duty of care, along with my dependent children.) My employer dropped the criminal claim(s) when I signed a new settlement contract without whistleblower protection. I now believe that the new settlement terms violate the Public Interest Disclosure Act (PIDA), Clause 43J. I do not believe the claim in Thailand was legal, but that my employer did not want to rely on the Landau settlement contract. But, I had to deal with this in Thailand, anyhow. This is the drama and saga that doing business with Philip Landau added to my life!

I guess "lucky" is one of the words I'd describe my working career so far, lucky in so much as I've not needed to instruct a solicitor for any reason and I've been employed now for about thirteen years since graduation (wow, I'm getting old!). Back in mid December last year I found myself in a situation with my employer whereby I very much felt the need to seek impartial, professional legal advice. When I originally contacted Landau Law it was smack bang in the middle of the Christmas period and even though their company was on shutdown for their Christmas break, Philip Landau (the founding member himself!) got back to me to inform me they'd be in a position to help me out, incidentally the only one out of five companies I contacted during that period to actually bother even replying to me. I was initially quite panicked by my work situation, having not been in any position quite like it before I was very concerned my job and therefore my career were at risk. After a relatively short period of time I'd sent off all of the documentation they needed and they quickly assured me that not only was my job secure, should I feel the need to, there were options that could result in a fairly healthy payout should I wish to pursue them. I ended up dealing with three different members of staff at Landau Law, all three of which were professional but also a delight in dealing with. I have done some GCSE and A-Level maths and physics tutoring to family members as favours previously and I have found it a nightmare trying to convey concepts to them. Not only was everybody I dealt with at Landau fantastic at explaining the law behind my situation, they did so in a very non-condescending and friendly manner, ensuring I understood every aspect of the associated law or laws that were relevant for the aspect of the situation being dealt with. As I started this review, I’ll finish it off by repeating that I have been lucky enough to not need to instruct an employment law solicitor up until very recently, but should I need to again, or should anyone be looking for one, I would recommend Landau Law without any hesitation whatsoever. Thank you for your help, especially Sanya who was genuinely superb throughout my entire dealings I had with Landau. Many thanks Philip, Emma and Sanya!

I've met with Claire Matthews (my employment consultant) a few times now and she's always been helpful, with an easy manner, recognising that I'm an experienced HR Manager and working with me. We get a lot done in our meetings and always come away feeling she has supported me to a high standard

Based upon my own experience with them and in my opinion this company had offered a very very bad service and I did not have a great experience at all, the service was not satisfactory and I will never use them again.

Excellent service from John McConkey and his team. They responded to emails immediately and took time to answer any questions that I had. I am really grateful for their fast, efficient, professional service.
