Timing
& Pricing.

Employment Law

As part of our commitment to doing law differently and making lives easier, we are offering fixed fee pricing options. Ask us about how this works when you request a quote.

How long will a case take?

Each situation is different. And during what can be a stressful and uncertain time, we treat each case with the sensitivity it deserves. The time taken from instruction to resolution depends on at what the stage the case is resolved. As a guide your case is likely to take:

  • 1 to 8 weeks – if a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation.
  • 6 to 9 months – if your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing.

Each quotation matches each individual situation. As things can change as the matter progresses, we will keep you up to date if any changes affect the price.

What will it cost?

Example: Claims for unfair or wrongful dismissal

  • Simple case: £0-£5,000 (excluding VAT).
  • Medium complexity case: £0-£10,000 (excluding VAT).
  • High complexity case: £0-£15,000 (excluding VAT).

There are various factors which can make bringing or defending a case more complicated. This includes defending claims by claimants who are not represented by a solicitor or barrister, or allegations of discrimination linked to the dismissal.

Additional charge for attending a Tribunal Hearing of £250 to £1,000 per day (excluding VAT). As a guide, allow 1-10 days depending on the complexity of your case. As each case progresses, things can change along the way. We will keep you up to date if any changes affect the price

Associated costs (disbursements)

These costs are the same for any solicitor you choose to use. We pay these to third parties for you, such as court fees. Counsel’s fee is between £500 to £1,500 per day for attending a Tribunal Hearing (which includes preparation).

If you want to handle the claim yourself we can provide advice for some of the stages.
