Tribunal representation

Tribunals are time consuming and stressful and if we can help you to find a better outcome we will. However where they are necessary or the right course of action we ensure you have the best representation. Our highly skilled advocates have nearly fifty years experience between them of representing employees in all types of employment claim. These include unfair dismissal, all types of discrimination, whistle blowing, wrongful dismissal, harassment, working time claims, holiday pay claims and all other claims over which the Employment Tribunal has jurisdiction.

We have a very high success rate both in Tribunal and in obtaining good settlements for our clients.

What we offer

  • open and honest advice on your options and prospects of success
  • tough and pragmatic settlement negotiations
  • thorough preparation of your case
  • skilful and persistent advocacy
  • focussed and well drafted witness statements and arguments
  • a very high success rate

If this is route you have to go you will not be disappointed with the quality of the service.

How much does it cost?

We are up front and open about the fees we charge. The general rule is that there is no legal aid for Tribunal claims and no costs awarded on either side. One way or another you have to pay! Some claims can be covered by an insurance policy, typically a house and contents insurance policy, and we will look at a no win – no fee or conditional fee arrangement but the reality is that there rarely make any financial sense for either client or Solicitor.

If you have to pay on a commercial basis we will try to keep fees to a minimum but inevitably there will be a significant cost. We prefer you to remain in control, we are happy to keep you up to date with costs as they are incurred, to do specific pieces of work on a fixed fee basis and allow you to set the budget. Sometimes we cannot avoid charging on an hourly rate but we will never do work which you have not authorised and with at least a good estimate of what it might cost.  What we can say is that for the experience and expertise you have access to we charge less than almost all our major competitors.
