Defending Employment Tribunal claims

If you have received an employment-related claim, you can rely on us to provide clear advice from the start - on your prospects of successfully defending the claim, the likely exposure to 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 employer clients because we can better anticipate the claimant’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’”.
