Lloyd is predominantly based in Attwells’ Colchester office, but also regularly works from our other offices in Ipswich and St Johns Wood. He is a graduate of Essex University and joined the firm in August 2009. Lloyd is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association and a Partner of the firm who heads up our Employment Law Department.

Lloyd is an expert business lawyer, and a specialist employment law solicitor, who has represented both employers and employees at Employment Tribunals all over England. He is particularly experienced in dealing with unfair dismissal and discrimination claims, as well as advising clients on employment issues more generally, such as grievance and disciplinary matters. 

Lloyd specialises in providing advice and support to two sectors in particular, those being the property and the health & social care sectors. Over the past 10 years or so Lloyd has acted for Estate Agents, Lettings Agents, Management Companies, Care Homes, Care Agencies, GP Practices, Dentists and Childcare Providers.

He is adept at advising on, and producing, all forms of employment documentation including settlement agreements, contracts of employment, consultancy agreements and policies and procedures.  Lloyd’s clients value his tenacity, attention to detail and supportive approach to all of his client relationships. He is also a qualified Workplace Mediator and sits on the advisory board for key employers in the local Suffolk area.

Lloyd also works in other associated areas including company/commercial law and civil litigation, which usually involves working on matters such as shareholder agreements, share purchase agreements, pre action correspondence and County Court claims.

When he isn’t in the office, Lloyd volunteers at the Ipswich Legal Advice Centre and the Citizens Advice Bureaus in both Felixstowe and Chelmsford.  Lloyd has also fostered fantastic relationships with schools, colleges and universities all over East Anglia, regularly delivering talks to aspiring legal professionals.   

Like all Attwells’ lawyers, Lloyd offers a no charge no obligation consultation on any legal matter within his expertise.

  • "Lloyd’s Quality is Fabulous."

    Mrs. K
  • “Attwells have advised my business for many years and I have been extremely happy with the professional nature of the services provided."

    Mr. R
  • “I have used Lloyd’s services on a personal basis and have recommended my own accountancy clients to Attwells for several years. It’s a great pleasure working with a firm who use a common-sense approach to all legal matters. I would continue to recommend your services.

    Mr. K
  • “Lloyd was extremely helpful. He came to visit and talked through how we work, in quite a lot of detail Aand during this conversation, he identified a weakness in our paperwork – thanks to his knowledge of employment law. All this was for no fee. And so when it came time to fix this weakness, he did it, for a fixed fee, fast and efficiently. And came back to me fast when I had follow-up questions. So – we’re certainly glad we met him!

    Mr. G
  • “I am very impressed with your work, you understood perfectly the brief and delivered what I wanted beyond what I was expecting. I had a good long look of the contract with my wife and she was also very impressed, commenting on how she would have loved to see such a contract when we sold our properties.

    Mr. F
  • “Due to very unfortunate circumstances beyond my control I got involved in a legal dispute with a former business partner who acted in an unethical and unlawful way. Forced to find legal representation I appointed Lloyd Clarke from Attwells to act on my behalf. A few days ago we managed to draw a line under this long battle with the best possible outcome. Due to the nature of the case the process was drawn out over a long period of time. Lloyd’s ability to focus on the facts, apply his expert knowledge and communicate clearly with all involved made this bearable. His ability to ask the right questions, understand the context and content, find the legislation applicable to the case and then act accordingly in a timely and highly professional manner is simply extraordinary. I always felt that Lloyd had my best interests at heart and provided me with the service that I so desperately needed. He certainly knows his craft and prides himself in the service he provides to his clients. I will not hesitate to recommend Lloyd to anyone in need of legal representation.

  • “Lloyd Clarke was an exceedingly positive, empathetic and calm support with recent issues I experienced. I remain very grateful for this, and the professional manner in which he dealt with the issue. He offered a clear, quick response which was hugely appreciated, particularly the efficiency and speed with which it was executed. I would hope never to be in this position again, however would not hesitate in the slightest to recommend Lloyd and Attwells to anyone.

    Mr. N
  • Attwells agreed to drop in and see us after our initial enquire which no one else offered. After a chat with Lloyd who was very informative and explained thoroughly what was and wasn't required we chose Attwells. Fast delivery, expertly done and instant response to feedback with immediate amendments to documents as required. Couldn't ask for a better service.

  • There was a very quick response to our request for service. A good understanding of our needs and you were very prompt in providing suggested drafts for our consideration.
