The benefits of using our employment lawyers
Employers do not always get redundancy and terminations right. Your position may not in fact be redundant, or your employer may not have followed a proper consultation or selection process. Our employment solicitors can tell you where you stand and support you in dealing with this stressful situation.
How our employment solicitors can help:
- Advise whether your employer has a case for redundancy or termination
- Advise whether you are being treated fairly
- Help you plan the best strategy
- Ensure that you receive a good settlement as quickly as possible
- Ensure that you and your employer part on amicable terms
- Represent you at employment tribunal if necessary.

A managing director was dismissed on redundancy grounds with a month’s salary. The real reason was that the chairman wanted him out of the business. We helped him secure funding for his claim, facilitated negotiations, securing him a 6-figure settlement and the relaxation of post termination restrictions.
An employee had been put at risk of redundancy. The company was trying to terminate her employment to avoid paying £30,000 commission. We helped her negotiate redundancy terms that compensated her for her commission and other benefits because the company did not follow a proper consultation process.
Our client was offered either redundancy or a more junior role. His employer was seeking to use a redundancy argument to change his terms and conditions. We advised him on his rights, potential claims and gave him a strategy to negotiate that resulted in him leaving on considerably better terms.
