Organisations can sometimes find themselves in the position of defending an Employment Tribunal claim. If this is the case, our employment solicitors are able to provide cost-effective advice tailored to the facts of the case and the needs of the business.
We understand that Employment Tribunal claims are burdensome on both sides. Our first priority is to explore possible settlement tactics seeking an early end to litigation in the most commercial way. We find that most of our disputes are resolved in good time before any full Employment Tribunal hearing, however, there are circumstances in which settlement may not be in our client’s best interests in which case we represent our clients through defending tribunal litigation. Our clients are able to rely on our tactical insight, extensive knowledge and sensitivity to their needs.
We have a track record of successfully bringing and defending appeals in the Employment Appeal Tribunal and guide our clients swiftly and commercially. The procedures of employment law appeals, and even further in the Supreme Court, are often complex and technical, therefore we work effectively with top-ranked barristers with whom we enjoy excellent connections, providing assurance and confidence to achieve the best outcome.
As a firm that advises employees, senior executives, and employers in a full range of employment sectors, we are placed in the perfect position to advise our wide client base. We are sensitive to the reputational needs of our clients and when the need arises, we are able to liaise with our Media and Crisis Management teams to help control and assess the reputational significance of litigation decisions.
