Tensions in the workplace

Finding the right way to resolve difficult situations

Help with disciplinary and grievance procedures

Whether you’re an employer or employee, we can support you through the disciplinary or grievance process, advising you along the way.

We write and advise you on the necessary procedures, and save you time by preparing letters and documents. Most importantly, we help you minimise the emotional and practical impact on your business and employees when dealing with difficult HR decisions.

Performance management

If you’re involved in the delicate process of performance managing staff, we can advise you on every stage, preparing any documentation you need. We can also work with you to develop performance-related bonus policies.


Many strategic developments in a business can result in restructuring or redundancies. We can help you put these changes into effect and advise on redundancy payments.

Employment tribunals

We can work with you during the ACAS early conciliation process, and prepare claims or responses to claims when you need them.

We support you throughout the employment tribunal claim process, preparing documentation for every stage. We can also help you reach settlements based on commercial, strategic and tactical factors.

When things go wrong and a claim is made against you, it can be stressful and time-consuming to manage this. We will assist you with alleviating this stress and helping you to present your case as robustly as possible in the circumstances.

Where possible we offer fixed fees for each step of the process so that you can budget for the likely costs, and we can discuss ways in which costs can be minimised – this may include deciding to offer a commercial settlement (without any admission of liability)

As a guide, if we were to assist you in defending an unfair or wrongful dismissal claim, our fees will fall within the following brackets. The variation of the fixed fees depends on the complexity of the case (all cases vary hugely – no two cases are the same) and the level of lawyer who is assigned to assist with the task/stage in the process.

We have a number of lawyers who may assist with your case, from Paralegal level to Partner level. The hourly rates vary from £100 – £250 (plus VAT). You will be advised at the start of the case the levels of lawyers assigned to your case, and their specific hourly rates. Where possible, however, we will not conduct the work on a time spent basis, but offer fixed fees.
