Employment Tribunal claims

If you are considering bringing an employment-related claim against your employer, do not delay in contacting us as claims must be brought within strict time limits. You can rely on us to provide clear advice from the start on your prospects of success, the likely compensation if the claim were to succeed, the likely costs and risks if you proceed and any tactical considerations. Where settlement is a possibility, we will use our experience to negotiate the best possible terms. 

Where litigation is necessary, we have the expertise to conduct Employment Tribunal advocacy ourselves. We will fight your corner robustly and effectively and have a high success rate. Our experience representing both employers and employees positions us to provide the best strategic advice to our employee clients — because we can better anticipate the employer’s next moves.

Our skills in dealing with Employment Tribunal cases were independently recognised by leading legal directory, the Legal 500 UK in its 2014 edition in which our Managing Partner, James Moss, was “recommended, for contentious work, and is noted for his ‘expert knowledge’ and ‘robust representation’”.

Funding options

We are able to offer a range of funding options.  Our hourly rates are highly competitive and significantly lower than those charged at larger commercial law firms.  Where possible, we also offer a range of fixed fee services for employment advice.  If you, or anybody in your family, has legal expenses insurance, this may cover some or all of our fees — many of our clients fund their claims in this way.  If you do not have legal expenses insurance and we consider that your case has good prospects of success, we may agree to take your case on a no win, no fee basis.
