Tribunal and other legal proceedings can be costly, time-consuming and uncertain, however by making sure we understand your objectives and agreeing on a clear strategy at the start of the case, we can work with you to achieve the best possible outcome – whether that be a win on the day or a commercially driven settlement.
We represent our clients in the Employment Tribunal, EAT, County and High Courts, handling claims ranging from unfair dismissal, discrimination, whistleblowing, equal pay, unlawful deduction from wages and breach of contract, to injunctive action for breach of post-termination restrictions and judicial review. We also act for clients in mediations.
We understand that every client is different so we don’t have a ‘one-size fits all’ approach when it comes to litigation. We want you to be comfortable with the way we represent your business so we make sure we tailor our approach to fit your culture.
We will provide you with an early case assessment setting out prospects of success, potential financial exposure for the business, and a cost/benefit analysis so that we can agree on the best way forward in partnership with you.
We will always advise you on the pros and cons of an early settlement, but we also appreciate that many employers are quite rightly concerned about creating a ‘claims culture’ within their business so we will defend a claim to the hilt if that is what you decide to do. Our experience tells us that thorough preparation is the key to winning a case, so we invest the time to make sure that all of your witnesses are fully briefed on the issues and the evidence and can present the best case on the day.
