Dale Langley

Principal & Founder

Dale is the Principal of the Firm and its most senior employment lawyer. Dale spent the first twelve years of his career Specialising in Employment Law within two top City Law firms; Stephenson Harwood and Ashurst where he established their respective Employment Law Groups.

At that time he identified a need for a specialist practice providing a professional and competitively priced service within the City to senior employees in financial markets and nationally to high level executives and directors.

To address this need he established Langley & Co. in 1993 moving to Dale Langley and Co. in 2000. Dale was a pioneer in this regard and Dale Langley & Co was (and remains) at the forefront of Firms providing a ‘one stop shop’ of all employment law services for employees. Dale represents both individual and corporate clients with many senior city figures and executives being established clients. His work is almost exclusively comprised of word of mouth referrals from satisfied Clients. He has almost unparalleled experience in all aspects of Employment law and related disciplines.

Dale is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association.
