Delegation to an expert team of Employment Lawyers
You get to focus on the more important stuff! Our team have assisted SME businesses to flourish as a result of the invaluable support provided by our team which has enabled business owners to focus on the bigger, more important elements of the business that perhaps are taking a back seat due to timely and frequent employee related matters.
If the offer of unlimited advice and a dedicated team of lawyers on hand at all times to advise you is not enough, our package can provide your business with legal expense insurance to protect and shield your business in the event of an Employment Tribunal claim.
Due to the abolishment of the requirement for employees to pay fees to bring Employment Tribunal claims, there has been a sharp rise in claims against employers. The average cost of defending one claim is around £8,000 + VAT per case – which an employer is unlikely to be able to recoup from the employee, even if the employer successfully defends the claim, and the claim was without any real merit.
Our clients benefit from unlimited employment law and HR advice with a view to avoiding employees bringing claims against them, without compromising our clients’ commercial aims. In the event that an employee does bring a claim against one of our clients, the legal costs including any settlement or award will be taken care of by our insurance cover – providing certainty of both outcome and cost. This allows business owners to concentrate on the most important aspect of their time – maintaining and growing their business.
Dedicated point of contact
We know how important continuity is, which is why you will enjoy direct access to a named, employment law advisor who will support you with all employee relation and employment law issues throughout the duration of the service. Our advisors develop long term working relationships with their clients who end up most of the time, being on a first name basis with.
Our team prides itself on their approachableness and friendly working relationships developed with their clients over time which allows clients to feel that their employment advisor fully understands their business and its needs which creates accessible and bespoke employment law advice allowing the business to achieve its personal commercial aims.
Our package is payable on a fixed fee basis meaning that you will not be asked to pay any hidden costs, with or without the insurance. Our clients can take out our package on a 12, 24 or 36 month retainer and will know from the offset the total fee payable for the duration of the retainer.
Our fixed fee model allows businesses to truly make use of our unlimited advice service without feeling worried that their legal fees will increase as a result. Further, with such affordable rates, clients often save on what would otherwise be very hefty legal fees.
