“We believe that issues arising in the workplace need to be dealt with in a fair and sensitive manner, where the needs of the business should be balanced with the rights of their Employees.”Matthew Jenkins, Associate Solicitor
We understand that it can be daunting as an Employee to speak up and challenge your former or current Employer on a number of issues. You are free to take your Employer to a Tribunal yourself but it is important to understand your rights as an Employee which is where we come in. We are here to talk through and discuss a variety of issues in order to let you know where you stand in regards to your rights as an Employee to see if you have a case. Many of these claims are time-sensitive and require action within a few months otherwise they may be thrown out by Employment Tribunals so it is important for you if you choose to seek legal advice that your case is discussed in a timely and efficient manner.
If litigation action is contemplated, the strengths and weaknesses of your case will be laid out from the outset so that you have a clearer view about your prospects of winning a claim. It is not just Employees we represent though. Employers look to us for advice on how to bring disciplinary action to their Employees in the right way, following procedures and processes correctly to ensure you are acting lawfully in relation to your Employees’ rights. This means we are able to look at Employment Law from both sides to help you comprehend the arguments and counter-arguments that can be made regarding your case whether you are an Employee or Employer.

Costs Information

Due to the complicated nature of an employment tribunal, it is not possible to provide you with an accurate estimate before an initial consultation

For all employment law matters other than Settlement Agreements, for which we can offer a fixed fee service,(including tribunal proceedings in relation to Unfair Dismissal and Unlawful Deductions from Wages) we charge on an hourly rate basis. Matthew Jenkins is our principal employment solicitor and his hourly rate is £225+VAT per hour. An initial consultation will usually last around an hour at which we will be able to provide you with an estimate of costs in relation to your case. We also provide you with costs update and if we need to revise your costs estimate at any stage we will write to you with a revised estimate.

In addition to our fees it may be necessary to incur other disbursements in relation to your case. For example it will usually be necessary to instruct a barrister to represent you at the trial of your claim. Barrister’s fees vary considerably depending on the experience of the barrister instructed and the complexity/length of the case in question. We always need to take payment of barrister’s fees in advance, at least 2 weeks before any hearing takes place. Barrister’s fees are payable from the date they are instructed and as such even if a case does not progress to trial a barrister’s fees will be payable in any event.
