With employment law ever changing and increasingly complex, failure to obtain the correct legal advice will almost inevitably result in serious and expensive consequences.
At Andrew Kingston & Co., we offer a wide range of contentious and non-contentious employment law services, to both businesses and individuals, including advice relating to:
- Unfair dismissal.
- Wrongful dismissal.
- Settlement agreements.
- Employment Tribunal representation.
- Maternity, paternity and adoption rights.
- Redundancy and restructuring.
- Staff handbooks, employment contracts, policies & procedures.
Our clients can expect a pragmatic and commercial approach, giving you the advice you need.
Our charges, in relation to any work which it is agreed we will do for you on the basis of an hourly rate, will be charged at the standard hourly sum shown on the fees page of this site. We may also be able to offer individual clients funding arrangements based on a share of the damages awarded (often called “no win – no fee” or, to use its proper name, a “contingency fee”). This can only be done after a full review of the circumstances of the client and the case, and discussing any other funding options which may be available. For example, many people have insurance cover for legal costs, perhaps without realising that they do. It is added on to many insurance policies, such as household or car insurance. If you have such insurance cover, the insurer will normally choose a panel Solicitor to act for you.
We are not able to offer free consultations. Before carrying out a review of the case, we ask that £360.00 (including V.A.T.) is deposited with us so as to cover the probable time involved. We will then be able to advise on the merits of your claim and whether we would be prepared to deal with it on the basis of a contingency fee.
