Proven success in Employment Tribunals

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.  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.  We are also superb at getting the best from witnesses and helping you produce highly effective, persuasive witness statements.

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.

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.  For information on the cost of any other type of Tribunal claim, such as discrimination, please contact us.
