Legal Fee Information for Employment Tribunal Claims

Introduction

We have set out below the issues you need to consider in relation to Legal Fees and disbursements for presenting or defending a claim for unfair or wrongful dismissal.

Our Legal Fees cover all of the work required to handle your case from instruction to conclusion.

Legal Fees

Legal Fees is the amount you will be required to pay for all the work performed by us in actioning your instructions from commencement of your case to conclusion.

If at any stage our fees change, we will notify you and discuss the reason for any changes. This would typically occur if you change your instructions or your case involves an unforeseen complexity

Disbursements

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.

Typical disbursements for unfair or wrong dismissal claims disbursements relate to Counsel's fees estimated between £2,000 to £4,000 per day (depending on the experience of the advocate) for attending a Tribunal Hearing (including preparation)

Stages of the Process

The precise stages involved in unfair or wrong dismissal claims vary according to the circumstances. We have set out the key stages of a standard transaction: -

The stages set out above are an indication and if some of stages above are not required, your legal fee may be reduced.

How long will my claim take?

The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved.

If a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation, your case is likely to take 2-4 weeks.

If your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case is likely to take 4-6 months.

This is just an estimate and we will of course be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information and as the matter progresses.
