Our pricing for bringing and defending claims for unfair and/or wrongful dismissal:
Factors that impact on our pricing include:
There may be an additional charge for attending an Employment Tribunal Hearing of £1,000 per day (ex VAT). Generally, we would allow 1-5 days depending on the complexity of your case.
Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as court fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
Likely disbursements include Counsel’s fees, which we estimated as £750 – £2,000 per day ex VAT (depending on experience of the advocate) for attending an Employment Tribunal Hearing (including preparation)
The fees set out above cover all of the work in relation to the following key stages of a claim:
The stages set out above are an indication and if some of stages above are not required, the fee may be lower. You may wish to handle the claim yourself and only have our advice in relation to some of the stages. This can also be arranged based on your individual needs.
The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved. If a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation, your case is likely to take 4-8 weeks.
If your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case is likely to take a minimum of 9-12 months, but could be longer. This is just an estimate and we will of course be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information as the matter progresses.
