How We Work

The process and available payment options

Before you decide whether you would like to instruct us, one of our solicitors will have a brief telephone call with you to discuss your issue. The purpose of this call is to discuss how we would work with you, which solicitor would be the most appropriate to help you and how we would charge. The feedback we get from clients is that they like the opportunity to speak to one of our solicitors before deciding whether to instruct us.

We appreciate that instructing a solicitor to deal with your employment issue is an important decision and so you must feel comfortable working with us. We are very proud of the relationships we have with our clients.

There is no obligation to instruct us following this call, but we are not able to give legal advice until you become a client.

Retainer
For a fixed monthly fee you can consult one of our solicitors as much as you like and for whatever employment related issue you may have. We have many happy employer clients under this service who have been with us for several years.
Pay as you go
This is popular for clients who are only likely to need sporadic advice or for a one-off matter. You will be charged for work done on a time spent basis and, like most solicitors, our hourly rates vary according to the experience of the solicitor advising you. Where possible, we will give fee estimates and bill regularly.
Fixed Fee
We can offer fixed fees for most types of work. These are most popular for drafting contracts, handbooks and other documents. If you are keen for us to work to a fixed fee, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate this.

Fixed fees
We can offer fixed fees for most types of work. These are most popular for advising on specific one off issues such as Settlement Agreements and drafting documents. If you are keen for us to work to a fixed fee, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate this.
Insurance
Some individuals have legal expenses insurance to cover employment matters and so you should check your insurance policies for this. In most cases we are able to act for you under your insurance policy. If you have legal expenses insurance please call us to discuss this further.
No win, no fee
If we consider your case to have high chance of success and that you are likely to secure a suitable level of compensation, we may be able to work with you under a no win, no fee agreement. This means that our fees would be calculated as a percentage of the compensation you recover. Before deciding whether we could work with you on this basis, we would need to spend time assessing your case and this work would be charged for, regardless of the outcome. Please be aware that we only offer a limited number of no win, no fee agreements at any one time.
