What Happens When You Contact our Employment Solicitors?
- We’ll listen to what you want to achieve. A Solicitor or Lawyer will listen to you and give you some options about what you can do next. If we don’t think your position is achievable, we’ll be honest and tell you but we’ll give you some other realistic options. We will also work with you and focus our advice and what you want to do.
- We will discuss funding. One of the main questions we’re asked is how much will this cost? Every situation is different, but we’ve got a number of funding options and your Solicitor will talk you through these. We’ll be as transparent as possible, outlining clear cost estimates and funding options including legal expense insurance. All funding options will be discussed with you at the beginning of your claim.
- Formulate a plan of action. We give you a plan which includes timescales to help you get a successful resolution to your Employment Law situation.
- Start Work. Once we have understood what you want to achieve and how we will do this, we’ll start working for you. This will include a ‘hands on’ pro-active approach. We will also respond to any of your queries promptly
- Get you the resolution you need. We want you to get the resolution that you want and our team of experienced Employment Solicitors will go above and beyond to achieve this for you.
Senior Executive Employment Law Advice
We understand that Senior Executives can face additional complexities due to the nature of their position. This can include more complex employment disputes and requires a more specialised service. Our Employment Solicitors have the experience and knowledge to assist you through negotiation, contract reviews, mediation, exit strategies and legal proceedings.
We are familiar with large employer tactics and we adapt our advice accordingly. This includes the use of restrictive covenants which we can advise on as part of a contract review both at the start and end of your employment. We also understand that your reputation is incredibly important so we will ensure we put that at the forefront.
Our Employment Law Solicitors are accredited by Quality Standards Lexcel and The Law Society. We’ve been Lexcel accredited since 1998 when we were the first legal practice to be awarded this accreditation.
How Will My Employment Case be Funded?
We are open, upfront and honest about all of our Solicitor fees. Our Solicitors have different hourly rates depending on their level of experience. We’ll talk about this at the start to avoid any surprises.
Funding options are:
- A Fixed Hourly Rate
- A Fixed Fee that covers all work
- Staged Payments
If you’re not sure how complicated your case is we can offer you advice and outline the costs involved.
On Settlement Agreements, employers usually make a contribution to your legal fees, which may be sufficient to cover our costs. In more complicated cases, where we’re asked to carry out extensive negotiations to secure a better settlement package, we seek a higher contribution from the employer.
No Win No Fee Employment Solicitors
We do take No Win, No Fee claims in rare circumstances and this will be subject to a paid case assessment. Please contact us to discuss your case and find out how we can help you.
Subject to gaining an agreement with your insurer, we may be able to act for you under the terms of your Legal Expenses Insurance policy.
