It’s simple to request a free consultation here. We aim to get in touch with you within an hour or so if we can help. Please note that we cannot offer free consultations in all cases.
Fees for negotiations
We can offer a range of flexible terms of payment including:
- no win no fee;
- hourly rates; and
- fixed fees.
No Win No Fee
No win no fee means that we would charge a percentage of whatever deal we could negotiate for you. We try to offer no win no fee wherever possible, because we enjoy working together with you with the same incentives. This means aiming to settle cases quickly, out of court, and at the highest settlement value possible.
If you already have an offer on the table, then our percentage fee would not apply to that amount. That amount would be ring-fenced, and our percentage would only apply to any additional amount we negotiate for you. The range of fees is often between 10-30% of that additional amount.
We will let you know in advance the exact fee structure we can offer you. There will never be any surprise fees, or any obligation to proceed.
Settlement agreement signing
We guarantee that you will not pay us a penny for signing off your settlement agreement.
This is because the employer pays for this service. When you get a copy of your settlement agreement document, you will see a clause in there about legal fees. It normally specifies the amount which the employer will pay. This is often specified as £250-500 + VAT, depending on the complexity of the case.
After we have reviewed and signed the settlement agreement for you, we then invoice the employer directly for the signing fee. You are not involved in that invoicing process.
When to instruct us to negotiate
When negotiating it is best for us to be involved as early on in the process as possible, so we can guide you and get the best outcome for you.
If we do not think that we can significantly increase a potential settlement amount, we will let you know during your free consultation.
It’s necessary to understand the details before setting a fee structure, as tribunal cases vary so much, but they do tend to be expensive and we tend not to do these on purely no win no fee. This is because they are often very long and uncertain.
