Employment Tribunal Lawyers and Support for Businesses

Specialist advice to support you at every step of the way

When presented with a claim against your business, it’s vital that you have access to specialist, expert advice and employment law support to help ensure the best outcome for your business.

Employment tribunal support

Dealing with an Employment Tribunal can be an incredibly unnerving and time-consuming process. Our team of employment lawyers can look after you, and your case, throughout the life of a claim.

Understanding employment tribunal claims

Employment tribunals arise due to various disputes between employers and employees. Common reasons for tribunal claims include unfair dismissal, discrimination, breach of contract, harassment, and redundancy disagreements.

Employment tribunals can have significant implications for a business including financial cost, damage to reputation, and operational disruption.

Comprehensive legal representation

Your dedicated legal adviser will deal with all the other parties, take care of correspondence, and draft all your documentation to relieve you of significant time pressures and offer peace of mind.

Legal expenses insurance liaison: If you have taken Legal Expenses Insurance, we will liaise with the insurers directly on your behalf and keep them updated on the progress of your case.

Expert advice and settlement negotiation: Drawing from years of experience in defending claims brought against companies, we can provide informed advice on the prospects of success for your case. We also assist in exploring settlement options and negotiate terms that are acceptable to you.

Barrister representation: We will also liaise with Chambers to find and instruct a barrister who will represent you at the hearings, and work closely with them to ensure seamless representation throughout.

Stress-free case management: Our goal is to do everything we can to advance your case, taking the stress out of an already challenging situation.

Our highly experienced legal team will be on hand to help guide you through the employment tribunal process, providing expert guidance, advice and support.

Pragmatic and commercial approach to tribunal claims

We provide expert advice on tactics, not only advising on the financial implications of an ET, but considering additional factors that are relevant from a commercial perspective such as the risk of damage to reputation and the wider impact a claim can have in terms of other employees. 

Capped fees and flexible pricing alternatives

Depending on the nature of the claim, we can offer our Employment Tribunal support services on a capped fee basis to enable clients to budget and have peace of mind that bills aren’t going to escalate. Frameworks can include the standard pay-as-you-go hourly rate, as well as capped fee structures.

Support with both standard and complex claims

Standard would include such issues as unfair dismissal and breach of contract, and more complex claims could include issues such as discrimination, whistleblowing and equal pay.

Our services included in the tribunal process:

  • Drafting and filing your response to the claim
  • Preparing legally privileged merits reports to provide an overview of the claim, prospects of successfully defending each element of the claim and a breakdown of both the worst case and likely case in terms of financial exposure should the claim be upheld. These reports can assist with internal discussions at board level, decision making and budgeting.
  • Walking you through the preliminary hearing process (if required)
  • Making any applications to the tribunal on your behalf
  • Disclosing relevant documents and preparing hearing bundles
  • Preparing a counter schedule of loss
  • Preparing witness statements
