Employment Tribunals

Employment Tribunals

We have extensive experience representing clients in the employment tribunals in a broad range of claims. We act for both employees and employers in respect of tribunal proceedings to allow us to benefit from understanding the challenges applicable to both parties. If you have received an employment tribunal claim and are unsure what to do next or how to defend the claim, we can help.

We can draft a robust defence to the claims, advise you on the merits of the employee’s claims in addition to advising you on the associated costs and risks. We can represent you throughout the proceedings by dealing with documents, drafting Witness Statements and complying with other directions of the tribunal as well as arranging for you to be represented at any hearings, if you wish.

Whatever your objective, whether you are keen to robustly defend the claim or you wish to seek a settlement to avoid the costs and time of dealing with litigation, we will work with you to seek to achieve your desired outcome.

If you would like a confidential chat to see how we can help you, please contact us.
