Employment: Fees

We are up-front and open about our fees from the outset of our relationship with you.

Our advice can range from simple matters such as advice on changes to working conditions or how to handle a difficult situation at work through to negotiating settlement agreements and handling Employment Tribunal claims.

Our fees and some of our expenses are subject to VAT (currently 20%), this is payable in addition to the sums referred to in the above table.


Initial Consultation


​We offer an initial consultation service, which includes:


  • 30-minute consultation in person - £125 + Vat


Unfortunately, legal aid is no longer available for employment law disputes. However, in line with our firm’s overall ethos, we aim to make justice accessible and affordable. 


Fixed Fees


We also offer affordable fixed fee packages in respect of Settlement Agreements and all types of Employment Tribunal Claims. In the event your case is more complex, we may consider that some, or all, of our work should be charged at an hourly rate. In this case, we would again advise you from the outset about likely fees and keep you updated throughout your case. 


  • Settlement Agreements: £500 + Vat

  • Non - complex - Employment Tribunal Pricing for Employees: £1,000 + Vat

  • Complex - Employment Tribunal Pricing for Employers: £1,500 + Vat


Other Funding Arrangements


“No Win No Fee” Agreements


In certain cases, we may be able to offer a Damages Based Agreement (otherwise known as a “No Win No Fee” Agreement). This is where a solicitor’s fee is calculated as a percentage of the money (or damages) recovered, so you only pay legal fees from the damages awarded to you. This means that if no damages are won, then you are not required to pay us any legal fees. We will undertake an initial assessment of your case at the outset of your case to see whether your claim is suitable for this type of arrangement. 


A fixed fee of £350 plus VAT will be charged for this initial assessment which includes a written report setting out your likely prospects of succeeding with your claim.  


Check your insurance policies


It is always useful to check your household or other insurance policies as you could have legal expenses cover. If it becomes necessary to lodge a claim you have the right to select an independent solicitor of your choice to act on your behalf rather than a solicitor from the insurance company’s own panel, if you so wish.

Who will deal with you case?

Matters of this nature are usually dealt with our Zoheb Chaudhry or Tasneem Raza.
