    We undertake regular free Employment Law Advice Clinics at all our offices.

    Our clinics provide you with up to 20 minutes free consultation and advice about any Employment Law matter. However, for those requiring a full assessment on the background of your situation, and wanting in-depth advice about your Employment Law issue, we would comment 20 minutes is unlikely to be sufficient.

    We operate a Fixed Fee Appointment scheme. This is not an hourly rate and therefore you will know exactly how much your appointment will cost, no matter how long the appointment takes. Whilst we appreciate an appointment with one of our specialist Employment Law Advisers is not free, we consider it represents excellent value for money being fixed at a reasonable cost.

    During a Fixed Fee Appointment, we will provide a full, proper and comprehensive legal opinion on: –

    The full background of your situation
    Any potential claims
    The value of those claims
    Next action to be taken
    Funding for our representation
    Also, to ensure that you have a full record, we provide full written confirmation of our advice. Fixed Fee Interviews start at £200 plus VAT (£240 total) for an appointment with an Employment Law Solicitor.

    If you would like a Fixed Fee Appointment with any of our specialist Employment Law Advisers, please contact your nearest office and ask for a member of the Employment Law Team.

    We believe that we can serve our clients best by offering them a choice of adviser. With all the Fixed Fee Interviews, there is no limit to the amount of time you have with the adviser. We do not charge an hourly rate, but a fixed fee for the appointment.

    All advisers will discuss the background of your situation. They will identify any potential claims that you may have and estimate the value of those claims. They will also advise you on what to do next and what your funding options are for representation should you choose to bring a claim before the Employment Tribunal. Finally, our advice is confirmed to you in writing.

    If you would like a Fixed Fee Appointment, please contact your nearest office and ask for a member of the Employment Law team.

    Absolutely! However, we do begin all new matters with a Fixed Fee Interview. For most people with Legal Expenses Insurance, the cost of the Fixed Fee Interview is all you’ll ever have to pay.

    Fixed Fee Interviews begin at £200 plus VAT (£240 total) for an appointment with an Employment Law Solicitor. However, once you have attended your Fixed Fee Interview, we will usually contact your insurers directly to give them our assessment of your claim and request funding.

    Absolutely! We do not believe that Employment Law problems can be dealt with over the phone.

    In our experience, workplace issues are far too complex to be dealt with remotely and we would ask you to meet with us to go through the background of your situation.

    We begin our service to all new clients with a Fixed Fee Interview. Dependent upon the level of adviser you wish to meet, the Fixed Fee Interviews start at £200 plus VAT (£240 total). For your information, please do not hesitate to contact your nearest office and ask for a member of the Employment Law Team.
