Our employment tribunal litigation expertise is second to none making us uniquely placed to support you with your defence to any employment tribunal claim raised against your organisation. We are appearing before the Employment Tribunal in Scotland more than any other employment team and over the past 12 months we have acted in numerous claims which proceeded to full hearings (including a significant number of virtual hearings) with a very high success rate.

Benefits we being to your business 

If an employment tribunal claim is raised against your organisation, we will provide you with clear advice on prospects, financial exposure and strategy. If the decision is taken to defend the claim then we will thoroughly prepare your case and represent your position robustly before the employment tribunal.

We regularly represent clients from both the private and public sector in high profile and complex employment tribunal cases as well as dealing with more routine cases. As we are regularly appearing before the employment tribunal, we have a great insight into the approach that the employment judges and lay members will take. This puts us in an excellent position to advise you on how best to handle your defence.

We have more Law Society of Scotland accredited employment law specialists than any other team in Scotland. The team is rated by both Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 as one of the best in Scotland.

Our approach to fees 

As well as providing clear advice we guarantee that we will be transparent on costs.

We offer fixed fee packages for defending employment tribunal claims. If it is not possible to provide a fixed fee then we will provide a clear indication of the likely fee based on an agreed scope of work.
