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.
We do not charge for an initial consultation. During the consultation, you will speak to one of our lawyers or legal analysts to provide more information about your situation. We will then determine appropriate next steps.

The costs of defending a case will vary with the circumstances; and we are always willing to discuss a range of payment options with clients.
