Legal Expenses Insurance
Monaco Solicitors is happy to act on the basis that your legal fees will be covered by a legal expenses insurance policy. Usually, the policy will cover the fees that you are likely to incur in fighting your case in the Employment Tribunal.
Withdrawing settlement offers
It’s very unusual for a company to decrease an offer which they’ve already made to an employee – that amount will normally go up, not down.
We are very experienced in Tribunal cases, but normally we try and negotiate a settlement first.
If you feel too stressed to work then your GP should give you a sick note.
When time is of the essence, and you need advice today, we can respond extremely quickly.
Conflicts of interest
We don’t represent employers, so there is never a conflict of interest.
Lists of solicitors
If you need to have a settlement agreement reviewed and signed, your employer will pay the fee required for this. You can choose any solicitor you would like, including Monaco Solicitors even if we are not on your employer’s list, and your employer will still have to pay the signing fee.
When should Monaco get involved?
Employees often want to negotiate themselves, but think about contacting us early on – maybe we can guide you through doing it the best way possible.
Get in touch and, if we can help, we will call you, offering a free consultation if we can. If we can’t help, we will send you an email explaining this. We will not take your case if there is no way that we can help.

We like to offer ‘no win no fee’ terms if possible. Whatever terms we offer you, we make our fee structure transparent and we never bill you for any hidden costs. We accept most major credit and debit cards as payment. Visit our fees page to find out more.
