Meet our Settlement Agreement Solicitors
We wrote the book on negotiating settlement agreements
We have written a book on how to negotiate a fair settlement agreement when being badly treated at work. Never before have lawyers put so much legal knowledge into the public domain, and we will always continue to strive to demystify the law. You can find out more about our book here.
The team here at Monaco Solicitors is the most accomplished and senior team of specialist employee-side lawyers anywhere in the UK. We do not use any junior or trainee lawyers, so you will always be properly advised. Each and every member of our legal team is an outstanding lawyer armed with the knowledge and credentials to overcome employers in settlement negotiations and court cases. We pool our knowledge and work together closely on difficult cases, so our clients get the benefit of the whole team when they instruct us.
We represent clients right across the UK, as we’re able to carry out all communications via phone and email. The only time when it is necessary to travel is to attend courts & tribunals, and we are happy to do this when needed, but the vast majority of our cases settle out of court before they get to that stage.
We have negotiated countless millions of pounds for our clients and our results show that in around 95% of our settlement agreement negotiations we achieve a significant increase in the exit package amount. The reviews on this website are nearly all five star, simply because we pride ourselves in providing a personal friendly yet professional and efficient service to all our clients.
You can rest assured that, because we only represent employees only, and never the employer, there is no conflict of interest. This is in contrast to most employment law firms, which represent businesses too. They are naturally inclined to stay on good terms with your employer because one day that company may become their client.
We have no such incentive. If your employer conducts itself ethically then we will get along just fine in a negotiation. If your employer acts unfairly or illegally, however, then we will not hold back from unleashing the full force of our legal firepower against them.
Our clients include employees, entrepreneurs, managers, directors and more. We work with everyone from junior employees who have been the subject to discrimination at work, to clients earning £300,000+ who have disputes about their bonus.
You could be being made redundant, or you might have a dispute at work. Disputes can include statutory claims like: unfair & constructive dismissal; redundancy; whistleblowing; and discrimination; and also contractual claims like: restrictive covenants; notice pay; bonuses; commissions; share options; and more.
