No area of law changes more quickly than employment. For instance, who would have thought only 10 years ago that employers would need an Internet and email policy for their staff? That's why you need an experienced and knowledgeable team of specialists to help you.

We can offer you an insurance policy which will cover the costs of legal representation before the Employment Tribunal and also the costs of any award made against you. Alternatively we can offer you a fixed fee arrangement which will proceed in stages up to and including representation at The Employment Tribunal. Throughout the process our aim is to prepare the best case possible for presentation before the Tribunal whilst looking at any opportunity to settle the case on advantageous terms for you.
SERVICE FOR EMPLOYEES
Employment disputes are never pleasant but our experienced team can help you through the process..During an initial fixed fee interview we will discuss the problem with you and offer possible solutions. If more work is to be done we will explore with you the alternative ways of funding your legal costs including insurance, fixed fees and Contingency Fee Agreements ( sometimes known as No Win, No Fee Agreements).
If you have been offered a Settlement Agreement (formerly a Compromise Agreement) by your employer we can advise and negotiate for you. Normally your employer will be responsible for all the legal costs involved.
