Employment Advice you need at a Fixed Cost
Your first consultation will be offered under our Discounted Fixed Fee First Interview Scheme. This is a cost-effective way of obtaining legal advice in a face to face – one to one appointment at one of our offices to suit you. Please see our Spotlight on Fixed Fees for General Litigation for more information about how this Scheme can help you.
You can expect to receive clear and concise advice and information on your rights, an assessment of the legal merits of your case and an idea of the likely costs and potential awards from the outset.
You can then choose whether to deal with your case yourself perhaps with additional advice from us on our Pay As You Go Scheme as and when you need it or under our standard retainer scheme if you prefer to instruct us to represent you.
You may have legal expenses insurance cover provided as an add-on or inclusion in a Home or Motor Insurance Policy. We would be happy to look at your policy to check whether or not this is available to cover the costs of our retainer services if you are unsure.
However difficult it may seem to bring a workplace issue to light, our employment solicitors can guide you through the legal process and our advice is always provided in plain and simple English – not complicated legal jargon.
It is essential to have the correct advice and/or representation when dealing with an employment matter since this is a complex and ever-changing area of law to ensure that the best possible outcome is achieved for you.
