Frequently Asked Questions
Here’s where we help! It is very important to no only choose a solicitor based on their affordability, but also on their service reviews, terms of service and also on how well you gel when speaking to them. An employment case can take years to see through to the end so having an employment solicitor who you trust and who you like will help if the case drags on. We only put you in touch with our very own approved employment law specialists.
Get in contact and our solicitor will review your case and confirm whether or not they will agree to act under a No Win No Fee Agreement. Not all cases do, however it might be worth finding out if yours does and if it doesn't, what other options there are available to you.
For a free consultation it is often best to speak to ACAS. You can however get an employment solicitor to review your case and for them to provide their opinion on the merits and potential claim of pursuing your case. We can help with this for you today so please get in contact.

Our approved solicitors will never recommend that you hire them if they think it would be a waste of your time and money.
An employment lawyer is trained to handle all types of employment law from unfair dismissal to constructive dismissal cases. During you initial consultation with your solicitor you should discuss what other employment cases they have handled. Whilst every case is different, the tactics adopted along the way are often the same.

When your cases progressing through the Tribunal process your solicitor may look to hire a barrister to present your case to the Judge. The solicitor prepares the case and witness statements and the barrister presents your case to the Judge.

The reason for splitting the responsibilities is so that a Barrister will present cases to a Judge on a day in day out basis so will be more used to court protocols, tactics and how the Judges award different types of cases.

You do not need to be near your lawyer to get employment law advice. In fact is much better to find a solicitor who specialises in this area rather than try and find a local solicitor near you.

If you do work with a solicitor who is not near you then they will employ the services of a local barrister to argue your case at the preliminary and final hearings. Depending on the size of the case, the law firm may send a solicitor to be with you at the hearings along with the Barrister..
