Settlement agreements often follow on from ‘without prejudice, ‘off the record’, or ‘protected conversations’ which can leave you feeling anxious and confused about the next steps in the process. Our employment team has unparallel experience in advising on the terms of settlement agreements and negotiating them to your maximum advantage. We will consider not only the financial settlement but also non-financial aspects which may be of significant value.
In order for a settlement agreement to be legally binding, it is a requirement that the individual seeks professional legal advice and for their chosen representative to sign an ‘Adviser’s Certificate’. Legal fees are commonly paid by the employer (although this is not a legal requirement) and usually we find that the contribution is sufficient to cover our fees; which mean you pay nothing!
Time is often of the essence. We are able to provide fast (same day), objective advice in workplace situations which have culminated in the offer of a settlement agreement, previously known as compromise agreements. Everyone is busy, especially when there is the task of looking for a new job. We are committed to working around your needs and can provide advice over the telephone or skype. Alternatively, if you would like to put a face to the name, a member of our employment team would be more than happy to meet you at one of our offices. We promise simple, clear explanations without unnecessary legal jargon.
We will provide strategic and commercially balanced advice and endeavour to turn what may seem like an insurmountable problem at work into a solution that works for you allowing you to focus on the future.
