Employment disputes

Now that employment tribunal fees have been abolished we have seen a sharp increase in the number of tribunal claims being filed.


If you are unfortunate enough to find yourself faced with the prospect of litigating an employment dispute, it is vital that you entrust the matter to a legal team who can guide you through the process as smoothly and as cost effectively as possible.


Our expert team has an excellent track record in dealing with the whole range of employment tribunal claims including unfair dismissal, breach of contract, discrimination and whistleblowing.


We provide strategic advice to both national and international clients. We navigate complex legal regulations, offer invaluable support and can secure the best possible commercial outcome for you.


A senior member of our team will be appointed as your case manager and will ensure everything runs smoothly and cost-effectively. Our solicitors work closely with several leading barristers’ chambers, so you will also benefit from access to specialist commercial and employment barristers at discounted rates.


We also work closely with our specialist commercial dispute resolution team, which specialises in enforcing post-termination restrictions in the High Court.


Tribunal claims vary in complexity, so we offer a range of flexible, transparent, costing options to fit your specific needs. One option for businesses looking to mitigate the risk of expensive claims, is to take out employment disputes insurance. You can find out more about this option here.
