With the best will and advice in the world, tribunal litigation can sometimes be unavoidable and can divert focus away from the day-to-day running of your business. Employment Tribunals are specialised courts which deal with claims arising in relation to a wealth of employment law issues. Claims raised here can prove complex, time-consuming and costly for employers. Early intervention and professional and straightforward advice from our expert team of employment law solicitors will help you achieve the best results, in a time and cost-efficient manner.
Employment Tribunal Solicitors
Our team have extensive experience in representing employers and have an excellent reputation for defending complex employment tribunal claims. We are sensitive to the pressures that you will face, but with the right tactical approach from the outset, we will support you every step of the way.
A tribunal claim must be addressed within a strict timeframe, so we will carry out an early assessment of the validity, facts and circumstances of the claim, the strength of your defence, the risks associated with fighting the claim at the tribunal and the likelihood of success. We will provide you with expert legal advice as to the best course of action for your business and will help you devise a strategy to achieve it. Defending the claim will require the collation of extensive evidence such as employee records, records of any conversations and correspondence, and witness statements to be prepared to support the employer’s defence case. It may also involve some of your employees giving witness evidence if the claim goes to a final hearing. This can be stressful for those involved and so we are able brief any witnesses in advance, as to the process and what they can expect from the Employment Tribunal environment – on-site if required – to help them feel more comfortable when attending a tribunal and help them understand what to expect.
Altogether we will work with you to put together the best possible case for minimum impact on your business.
