Employment Disputes

Employment law is a fast changing area of law. Workplace disputes can be disruptive and emotionally draining for the people concerned. Our approach is to apply our expertise to each case taking into account your aims in order to bring the matter to a successful conclusion.

We advise employers on ongoing Human Resource issues and assist them to anticipate and (if necessary) robustly defend tribunal proceedings. We can also advise on how to effectively manage workplace change, dealing with redundancies, business reorganisations and TUPE transfers.

We advise employees on all kinds of workplace disputes including unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal and discrimination claims. We can also assist with negotiating and agreeing settlement agreements.

For whomever we act we work to resolve disputes in our clients best interests as quickly and effectively as possible. We negotiate on behalf of our clients in order to achieve the very best resolution. If a negotiated settlement is not possible we act robustly to defend our clients interests whether in court or the Employment Tribunal.

Employees

Our solicitors have expertise in advising employees on their employment situation. In particular, we advise senor managers, executives and company directors.

We regularly advise and negotiate settlement agreements for substantial sums.

We can also advise on termination issues relating to share options, bonuses and pension. We work to ensure that you obtain the best possible deal on the termination of your employment.

If you have a dispute at work, feel that you are being forced to resign then we can assist you in pursuing your claim. Our solicitors have considerable experience of dealing with employment tribunal claims and can offer you the best representation.

In addition, if you are offered a settlement agreement then we are able to provide you with the independent legal advice you need. Our legal advice may include advice about the terms of the agreement and the value of the settlement offered.

We can act quickly to validate your claim or if necessary act on your behalf to negotiate a higher sum. Our aim is to ensure that you receive the best possible settlement.
