Employment Disputes and Tribunal Claims

We understand that it can be a worrying time for you and your business if a former or current employee threatens or brings a claim. It is essential that the defence to any claim is clearly drafted, not least due to the fact that the Tribunal has the power to “strike out” a defence on the basis of the submitted paperwork alone. As a result, it is very important to take legal advice at an early stage and ensure that your defence is robustly drafted in order to protect your position and maximise your chances of defeating the employee’s claim.

We always provide our clients with practical and cost-effective advice. We also offer a retainer service under which we can provide you with comprehensive advice on all HR and employment law issues that may arise on a day to day basis, reducing the likelihood of a dispute escalating to a claim.

In the event of a dispute you may also wish to consider instructing Paul Robinson Mediation, a division of Paul Robinson Solicitors LLP. Our qualified Mediators can help resolve disputes amicably. To ensure independence, neither employer nor employee can be a client of this firm in order to use our Mediation services.

    I would like to thank you for the way in which you dealt with this matter all the way through. Particularly I would express my thanks for your prompt replies to all enquiries that I raised and for keeping me so well informed of the progress of the case.

    Natasha Kelt, Dispute Resolution

    I would like to thank you for a superb job well done. When you have never been in the position I found myself in, it was your calm and confident manner that reassured me you would do your very best. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who requires legal advice.

    Jemmar Attfield, Commercial

    We would like to thank you and your team so much for all the help and advice we received and for acting in a courteous and professional manner at all times. Thank you also Lee for patiently addressing all the issues we raised and for explaining everything to us so clearly, sometimes repeatedly, until you were satisfied we fully understood the more complex issues with our Wills; you personally, were highly recommended to us by one of your grateful clients. Likewise, we too would not hesitate to highly recommend you to anybody planning to make a Will.

    Lee Hibell, Private Client
    I cannot praise you and your team enough for the professional way you handled my situation, you have been so kind and reassuring in what has been a very emotional and distressing time.
    Melanie Steeples, Family

    I must say her handling of the transaction was first rate and very professional. Always available and she was never afraid to pick up the phone and share information when it was better to communicate that way rather than just email, a blessing in this day and age. Though both parties were keen for a quick exchange she never allowed that pressure to mean she cut any corners with her enquiries and was always working in my best interests.

    I will be more than happy to work with her again in the future and will certainly recommend her to friends and associates who require similar services.

    Amber Day, Property

    Thank you for your prompt and concise response. That certainly makes things very clear and straight forward. Overall thank you for all your help and advice……. Should I need a solicitor in the future I will be sure to call your firm.
