What can we offer you?

We offer a range of products to suit any budget or experience requirements:

  • Fixed hours support – Our annual fixed hours packages (which all include 24/7 access to our comprehensive document bank as part of the price) can be used over a 12 month period as required. Once we understand your business’ need, we can advise you on the number of hours you are likely to need. We can also provide bolt-on packages for additional hours, all of which are offered at a reduced hourly rate.
  • All-inclusive – Our all-inclusive package has a ‘no hours cap’, meaning you can have unlimited access to your dedicated solicitor.
  • Pay-as-you-go – If you prefer not to be tied into an annual package, or only have a one-off case that you would like us to assist with, we can provide advice on a pay-as-you-go basis at our standard hourly rates.
  • Settlement agreements – This is included in our fixed hours and all-inclusive offerings, but we can also provide tailored packages for companies looking to undertake ‘bulk settlements’, be it in drafting or the negotiation stages of those agreements or in providing sensible advice to your employees as a mandatory part of the process.
  • Employment tribunal litigation – We have specialists who have an almost-unblemished record in defending Employment Tribunal claims. This is an area of particular expertise and our specialist solicitors have the attention to detail required in this field. They have been acclaimed by a Regional Employment Judge as being “extremely competent litigators”.
  • Employment training – We have specialists who have an almost-unblemished record in defending Employment Tribunal claims. This is an area of particular expertise and our specialist solicitors have the attention to detail required in this field. They have been acclaimed by a Regional Employment Judge as being “extremely competent litigators”.
