Our fees for bringing and defending claims for unfair or wrongful dismissal:
Factors that could make a case more complex
There will be an additional charge for attending a Tribunal Hearing from £1500.00 per day (excluding vat). Generally we would allow 1-3 days depending on the complexity of the case.
Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as court fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
Counsel's fees estimated between £2,500.00 to £5,000.00 per day plus vat (depending on experience of the advocate) for attending a Tribunal Hearing (including preparation)
The fees set out above cover all of the work in relation to the following key stages of a claim:
We also provide a Settlement Agreement Service. The costs of approving a straightforward Settlement Agreement are normally between £250.00- £500.00 plus vat.
The stages set out above are an indication and if some of the stages above are not required, the fee will be reduced. You may wish to handle the claim yourself and only have our advice in relation to some of the stages. This can also be arranged on your individual needs.
Our hourly rates start at £161 plus vat. You can tailor the service we provide to suit your requirements.
How long will my matter take?
The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved. If a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation, your case is likely to take weeks. If your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case is likely to take weeks. This is just an estimate and we will of course be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information and as the mater progresses.
