What will it cost?

We offer competitive fees and fixed fee services. Call us today to have a brief discussion, or to book an initial face-to-face meeting with our experienced employment lawyers. Our fee for an initial meeting is £250 plus VAT, which includes our time in reviewing your documents ahead of the meeting, and a follow up email or letter confirming our advice.

Having had that initial meeting, we will be best placed to estimate the likely fees to progress your matter. Kindly note that the fixed fee does not apply to consultations for settlement agreements for employees, as in these cases the employer will agree a separate fixed fee with us.

The Departmental hourly rates are as follows:

Fee EarnerPrice per hour
Senior Partner£350 plus VAT
Partner£250 plus VAT
Senior Solicitor£240 plus VAT
Paralegal£145 plus VAT
Trainee Solicitor£125 plus VAT

If you are either bringing or defending a claim of unfair or wrongful dismissal at the Employment Tribunal, our Fee Scale For Employment Tribunal Claims gives more detailed information about what you can expect to pay. It is worth checking whether such a claim might be covered by an insurance policy and finding out whether the insurance company will require you to use a panel solicitor to make use of the cover.
