Employment law is a complex and ever changing area which makes it vital that you receive the right advice. Whether you have been dismissed, made redundant, discriminated against or just feel that you have been treated unfairly, we can assess your situation and not only advise you on your legal rights but also provide practical advice on the best way to bring your situation to a successful conclusion. Quite often, there is a simple solution which will nip any problems in the bud before they escalate. It may be that your situation has gone beyond this point and we would therefore advise you on making a claim to the Employment Tribunal.
Our pricing for bringing and defending claims for unfair or wrongful dismissal
Our service covers work in relation to the following key stages of a claim:
The stages set out above are an indication of the likely stages but every case is different and our fees will reflect your individual circumstances. Our fees are calculated on an hourly rate basis of £200 plus VAT.
Whilst we will provide you with an estimate of costs once we have full details from you, we set out the following as a guide to show typical fees which are dependent on the complexity of the matter:
Simple case: £1,500 - £5,000 (excluding VAT)
Medium complexity case: £5,000-£20,000 (excluding VAT)
High complexity case: £20,000-£60,000 (excluding VAT)

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as court fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
The likely disbursements in this work are as follows:
How long will my matter take?
The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved. If a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation, your case is likely to take 6-12 weeks. If your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case is likely to take 6 months to 2 years. This is just an estimate and we will of course be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information and as the matter progresses.
