Our Employment Team will make a commercial assessment of your claim at an early stage, providing an accurate estimate of the likely costs of defending the claim and the likely cost of any settlement (if appropriate). In some cases, particularly unfair dismissal, we are able to offer a fixed fee either for the whole claim or different stages of the claim. This will enable you to take an informed commercial view of any claim.

In the Employment Tribunal we generally conduct our own advocacy, reducing the reliance upon barristers and potentially greater expense.  The added benefit is that the same individual will deal with your matter from start to finish.

We can help protect your business against such events occurring providing you and your business with peace of mind.
