We work hard to keep you out of court. But if you do end up facing an Employment Tribunal claim, we’re the experts to help you.
Our specialist employment lawyers are all senior, highly experienced experts in Employment Tribunal claims. And since our legal team includes seasoned barristers as well as seasoned solicitors, we believe we are one the strongest Employment Tribunal teams in the South West and Wales.
Having us on your side will give you a distinct advantage. With our expertise, our seniority and the barristers in our team, you can be confident that you have the more experienced, capable legal team on your side. With us, you get the big firm punch at a very cost-effective price.
Full range of expertise
We have expertise across the full range of Employment Tribunal claims. Unfair dismissal, redundancy, whistle-blowing, discrimination, breach of contract, equal pay… You name it, we have expertise in it and will provide your organisation with powerful, effective defence against any such claims.
Our experience and skill includes handling cases in the Employment Appeal Tribunal and Court of Appeal too. Our barristers have been involved in a number of cases at appeal level that have helped clarify and sometimes change the law.
Proven success in Employment Tribunals
Where possible, we will aim to keep you out of court. Often, we can negotiate a very modest, acceptable settlement for you, saving you a lot of time and cost. However, where necessary, our highly skilled and responsive Employment Tribunal litigation process will swing into action on your behalf.
We have had a great deal of success in defending employers in Employment Tribunal claims and have a very high success rate.
We’ve also thought a lot about how to look after you – the best ways we can take some of the stress away when defending an Employment Tribunal claim. First of all, we provide you with open, frank advice about the pros and cons of your case and expert guidance on the best strategy and tactics to use. Second, we are superb at getting the best from witnesses and developing effective witness statements. And what particularly sets us apart from other firms is the fact that our team includes our own barristers, who provide skill direction of your case and powerful advocacy at the hearings. Most other law firms will pass you on to an external barrister on the day of your hearing – someone you may well have never met before.
We speak Plain English
Our advice and guidance is unashamedly frank and plain English. We understand that you are paying us to look after you. Therefore that means we are prepared to tell it as it is and we guarantee a ‘no fence sitting’ approach.
Fixed fee options
Defending an Employment Tribunal claim can be very expensive for an employer. We are always looking at ways to provide the most cost-effective and high quality Employment Tribunal legal service that’s possible. That’s why we prefer to offer you fixed fee options in preference to traditional ‘pay as you go’ fees.
With a fixed fee agreement, we share the cost risk with you. It feels much more appropriate for us to be entirely on the same page as you, cost-wise. Our interests are then entirely aligned with yours – to get the case dealt with and completed as swiftly and effectively as possible.
We would be very pleased to tell about our full range of fee options for Employment Tribunals claims – including fixed fees, pay-as-you-go and of course the cover for such work under our comprehensive annual retainer package.
Employment Tribunal claims
Regulations require us to publish an outline of the potential costs for an employer defending an Employment Tribunal claim for unfair dismissal, constructive dismissal or wrongful dismissal: please see our Price guidelines.
