We regularly advise individuals on their rights, in particular, in relation to Settlement Agreements.  All our solicitors are very experienced in negotiating the best deal for you, often on substantially better terms than had originally been offered.  We will also advise you on the terms and effect of the Settlement Agreement, and crucially, whether it represents a good deal for you taking account of any Employment Tribunal claims that you may have.

We can advise you on how to frame your grievance to address the relevant issues in the most effective way.  We can provide comprehensive and sensible advice on any workplace issues in connection with redundancy, capability, (poor performance) or disciplinary allegations that may be made against you.  From the outset, we will advise you of the potential claims you could pursue and ensure those claims are preserved, as well as, advising you on the best practical approach in order to achieve the outcome that you want.

Our Employment Department is recognised in the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners as one of the leading law firms to advise on HR and employment advice in the South East.  Recommendation in the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners is based on client endorsement and testimonials.
