A Guidance on our fees – employer

Employees are the lifeblood of your business, and they have legal rights. Employment law changes frequently, and a dispute between you and an employee can be awkward and expensive. We work closely with our clients to familiarise ourselves with their business so we can deliver commercially practical advice, seeking to prevent disputes if possible and win them if not. Our specialist employment team can deliver the support you need.

We understand that disputes are sometimes unavoidable. We have an excellent record in Employment Tribunal claims and in claims before the County Court and High Court. We have achieved substantial wins for our clients in varying industry sectors including financial services, high-end retail, education, manufacturing and law.

Often we can negotiate with the employee and resolve their claim before they file with the Employment Tribunal or court. If this is the case, we can sometimes offer a fixed fee for preparing the terms of settlement.

Title IX case against UCLA, client confidential

It was such a weight off our shoulders; suddenly somebody else with a lot more experience was managing the case.

Sandeep Mander, Mander v. Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead

We really thought that there was nothing that anybody could do for us. We were wrong.

To get the result you got you must be as tough with your legal opposites as you are kind and understanding to your clients.

AOA client, confidential

Compared with other law firms I’ve worked with, no one matches the combination that McO has of experience, brilliance, ferocious fighting and deep empathy for their clients.

Dr Holly Atkinson, Atkinson et al v. Mount Sinai Health System, Inc. et al

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.
