We know that the last thing that many individuals want to do is to become embroiled in a dispute with their existing or former employer and much less be forced into issuing a claim against them in the Employment Tribunal. Regrettably however and all too frequently, individuals find that the actions of their employer, former employer and/or their colleagues often leave them with no realistic alternative.

Our specialist team of employment lawyers have a proven track record of representing individuals in all types of Employment Tribunal claims ranging from claims for constructive dismissal and unfair dismissal through to complex whistleblowing claims and claims involving allegations of discrimination. The team also has particular expertise in acting for senior executives where claims typically involve additional elements including bonus entitlements and share ownership.

Experience has taught us that no two claims are the same and that often the approach to be taken will vary depending on the circumstances of each individual case. Litigation is about the ‘end game’ and our specialist lawyers are adept at analysing the strengths and weaknesses of each particular case in order to determine the best strategy for success.
