Funding Options available:

We are fully transparent about costs which provides you with certainty over your legal bill and ensures no nasty surprises for you at the conclusion of your case. As a company, we have been listening to our clients in order to understand their business needs. Our research has revealed that our clients want more than just the traditional hourly billing rate.

We still offer the traditional model but we have a number of other funding options which may save businesses a great deal of money when pursuing and defending employment claims or dealing with a workplace issues or disputes.

Employment Protection Package: For business clients, we are in the process of setting up a very unique Employment Protection Package, which allows you to manage your employment risk whilst offering you insurance protection; the most sophisticated legal document builder and highly comprehensive HR and H&S management software. Whilst the all-inclusive package is a complete lockdown on your liabilities, saving you time, money and the possibility of expensive claims against you, it also takes away the worry of managing a workforce and complying with the barrage of legislation and regulations.

Legal Protection Insurance: You may be covered under the terms of your business, home or motor insurance policy. Some employers have an insurance policy in place to cover legal fees plus any award or settlement if an employment dispute arises. If this is the case then provided your claim has reasonable prospect of success, your insurer will pay all legal costs that have been reasonably incurred from the date they agree cover. The insurance company will then assess your case and decide whether they will fund your case. *You should note that although you have insurance, you have the freedom to choose which solicitor you want to represent you.

After The Event Insurance: Depending on the merits of your case, we can help you apply for ATE insurance from an established and trusted brand in the employment sector. Policies can cover the client’s legal fees and expenses, as well as the opponent’s costs where applicable.

Pay As You Go: Paying privately for us undertaking work on your case at our hourly rate until the matter is concluded. This option for payment is beneficial if you have a very high value case, a very straightforward case or you are requesting we carry out a small amount of work. You will need to make an initial payment of £500 on account before we commence any work on your behalf.

Fixed fees: We also try to provide you with a fixed fee for carrying out the work. This means you will know what you will be paying and the work we will be undertaking in return.

Costs: If your matter proceeds all the way to a final hearing, it is unlikely that costs will be awarded against the losing party. An Employment Tribunal will only make a costs order where in the opinion of the Employment judge, the paying party has acted vexatiously, abusively, disruptively or otherwise unreasonable in bringing or conducting proceedings.
