Access to expertiseAugment is serviced by Lupton Fawcett’s award-winning Employment Law team, all of whom are qualified employment lawyers.  Our advice is commercial and designed to help you achieve a quick and cost-effective outcome.

Legal privilege – As all of our advisers are qualified solicitors, this means all of the advice benefits from legal privilege.  What this means is that it is confidential and cannot be disclosed to third parties.  By contrast, some providers use non-qualified advisors, which means that their advice is potentially disclosable in the event of litigation.

Annual contract – Some providers tie in customers for two, three or even five years. By contrast, Augment is an annual contract.

Fixed fee – The fee is fixed, so you know the cost before you use.

Relationship driven – Unlike some providers who use call centres, the relationship is very important to us.  For this reason you will on almost all occasions be dealing with the same person each time.

Satisfaction Guarantee – We are confident that you will be satisfied with our advice and service.  We are therefore prepared to back this with our Satisfaction Guarantee.  In the event that you are not satisfied with our advice and service, you will be entitled to reduce the fee.
