Our approach to fees
As well as providing clear advice we guarantee that we will be transparent on costs.
If you are asked to sign a settlement agreement it's very often the case that your employer will pay your legal fees. We offer two separate fee structures:
- Advice only
- Advice and negotiation
Our 'advice only' service for settlement agreements is designed for circumstances where you're content with the terms of the agreement and simply want to have the agreement concluded as soon as possible.
If we agree to provide an 'advice only' service we'll do the work for the contribution to legal fees being made by your employer subject to a minimum fee of £350 plus VAT.
Advice and negotiation
Our 'advice and negotiation' settlement agreement service is suitable when you want to negotiate the financial terms. We will negotiate the terms of your agreement on your behalf with a view to increasing the amount you receive. As part of this, we will also attempt to negotiate the contribution to legal fees being made by your employer. We will charge for this service on a time spent basis and will provide with you with an indication of total fees at the outset, keeping you updated on fees as the negotiations progress.
