Jude and I live life to the full. Mum and dad always encouraged me to take my own path. And I have. Jude’s my soul mate. He’s the career guy – not me. Always working, and fretting about his next move.

Are you looking for a calculator for unfair dismissal awards, maternity pay and statutory redundancy payments?

Our approach to fees

We understand the importance of providing fee clarity and value for money.  In most cases we can meet with you and provide you with an assessment of your situation, including our view on your options and a recommendation, for a fixed fee of £325 plus VAT.

We offer fixed fee packages for any additional work if possible. If we are not able to provide a fixed fee then we will provide a clear indication of the likely fee based on an agreed scope of work.
