Virtual Lawyer is an award-winning tool (see below) that helps you to write a ‘without prejudice letter’ to your employer in order to negotiate a fair settlement agreement exit package deal after being badly treated at work.
With Virtual Lawyer you can craft the foundations of a legally accurate letter in just a few minutes. No need to sign up, or give any of your personal details – it’s totally free and anonymous.
Should I send a without prejudice letter?
If you want to keep your job then send a grievance letter. If you want to leave with a fair exit package then send a without prejudice letter instead.
A decent without prejudice letter will normally get a reply from the employer either making a settlement offer and/or setting out their side of the story.
Even if no offer is forthcoming, a reply will flush out their counter arguments and help you to understand what extra evidence you may need to obtain in order to negotiate a decent settlement.
It may seem daunting to write your own without prejudice letter, but don’t worry, ‘without prejudice’ means off the record, so it can’t be used against you by your employer.
For example it couldn’t be used in a grievance procedure or disciplinary at work, and it could never be referred to by a judge in any Employment Tribunal.
You can read more about this in our detailed without prejudice guide.

Monaco Solicitors are the 2021 winner of the Law Society’s Award for Excellence in Technology and Innovation for Virtual Lawyer. The Law Society judges said:
"Monaco Solicitors impressed the judges with the way they deployed technology ‘for the people’ and opened a door to help in the employment law ‘minefield’. This firm seized on a gap in awareness of the thousands of people across the UK who have urgent employment law issues. The firm’s use of artificial intelligence means they can help 500 people per week access justice."
We made the Law Society Gazette front cover and a double page spread too!
