Helping you with your Employment Law problem

We are aware that, when you contact us, you will probably have an employment problem; this may be that you have either lost your job or you are feeling insecure about your job. We will arrange an initial meeting with you – this is usually charged at a fixed rate – and will advise you on the merits and pitfalls of your claim and the possible outcomes.

We will need you to bring all of the documents that relate to your case to the meeting. Until we have all of your information we will not be able to assess your case. Once we have everything that we need we will review your claim and your chance of winning if you were to proceed to tribunal and will discuss with you the options available for funding your case.
