Know where you stand with our employment tribunal solicitors
‘Our fixed fee includes representation at the tribunal hearing either by an experienced barrister or one of our expert advocates’
Whatever measures you put in place to avoid litigation, disputes will inevitably occur and you may find yourself faced with a claim. Our employment tribunal solicitors can help you understand the merits of the claim at an early stage, putting you in the best position for knowing how to deal with it.
Employment tribunal solicitors
At the outset, we’ll give you a written assessment of your prospects of success. Our employment tribunal solicitors will also give you an idea as to the likely value of the claim, if it’s successful. This will help you decide whether to make an offer of settlement or defend the claim in full.
The cost of being involved in an employment tribunal can be worrying. That’s why we’ve designed a fixed fee structure that enables you to keep an eye on costs. Disputes are stressful enough without having to worry about whether or not you will be able to afford them. However, being better informed can make a big difference to minimising the effect they can have on your life.
