Settlement agreements

Independent legal advice

When faced with the prospect of signing a settlement agreement, it is a legal requirement that you seek independent legal advice before doing so. By signing the agreement, you are forfeiting any future right to pursue an employment-related claim against your employer.

Flint Bishop is a multi-award winning, UK 200 listed law firm made up of some of the most talented legal experts in the region. Our seven specialist employment solicitors provide sound and pragmatic commercial advice and are all very experienced at advising on settlement agreements.

Why choose us to give independent legal advice when signing your settlement agreement?

We are independent of your employer and will provide you with quality legal advice.
We will clearly explain everything to you and ensure that you fully understand the process.
Our Derby head office is perfectly positioned in the Midlands to advise people all over the country on their settlement agreements. Face-to-face meetings can be held at our office or we can advise you over the telephone and send any documents by email or by post, making the whole process as easy as possible for you.
We will act swiftly to progress your matter and guarantee to answer your phone calls and queries on the same working day.
Your employer should cover all legal costs accrued in us advising you on your settlement agreement.
