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.
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.
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. If you have taken Legal Expenses Insurance, we will liaise with the insurers directly on your behalf and keep them updated. We can advise you as to prospects of success based on our years of experience in defending claims brought against companies, and, where possible and appropriate, explore settlement and negotiate terms that are acceptable to you.
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. We will do everything we can to advance your case and take the stress out of an already stressful situation.
Specialist Employment Tribunal insurance cover that will cover legal fees associated with defending an Employment Tribunal claim.
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.
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.
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.
We’re here to help you spend less time tackling extensive immigration legislation and more time prioritising projects to drive meaningful change.
