No win- no fee
No win- no fee
As specialist UK employment law solicitors acting only for employees and senior executives, we are always willing to consider taking a case on a no win no fee basis if this is your preference. In doing so, we appreciate that this is often an attractive option at a time when financial security is uncertain.
Many employment lawyers don’t like working on no win – no fee basis because the risks are too high. Whilst risk is clearly an important factor, we have acted solely for employees and senior executives for many years in over 25,000 cases- with very high success rates. We are therefore well placed to judge those risks. Our experience and successful outcomes, in turn, gives us the confidence to operate with a no win- no fee form of funding.
How it works is simple. If the case is not settled, you do not pay us. Your fees are therefore dependent on us negotiating a settlement that you are happy with, or if the case needs to go to a tribunal, any amount that is awarded. It is expressed as a percentage of actual sums recovered from your employer. Where there is an existing offer of settlement, only the additional amount we have negotiated or recovered at tribunal will form part of the no win no fee arrangement.
The primary aim is to try and reach a negotiated settlement without the issue of tribunal proceedings, which is the overriding preference of most individuals – and employers too. The vast majority of disputes are settled on this basis where there is sufficient merit to your claim.
Not every case can be accepted on a no win no fee basis, but we will do our best to do so if this is your preferred costs option, wherever you are in the UK. Our reputation as specialist employment law solicitors covers all industry sectors.
We can also consider other funding options.
We are truly a national employment law firm, and our client’s range from City employees and executives in banks and “blue-chip”companies, to those working in smaller and medium sized businesses (or public authorities) in most job sectors throughout the UK.
We are also regularly called upon as experts on UK employment law in the media. This includes the BBC, The Guardian, Sky News, LBC News Radio, ITN, Radio London, Talk Radio, Radio 5 Live, the Wall Street Journal and The Independent.
In addition, Philip Landau writes as a contributor for The Guardian as an employment law expert.
