Defending Employment Claims in Tribunals & Courts

Solicitors in Essex & London

Employment claims by employees can be ‎costly; not only in terms of legal fees but also with regards to management time, and the stress and anxiety for other employees who may be involved. It is fairly quick and easy for an aggrieved employee to commence a claim in an employment tribunal or court, but far harder to defend one for an employer.

Our employment solicitors based in offices across Essex and London have substantial experience in defending employment claims in a tribunal or court; we also always consider whether alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation or roundtable meetings should be considered.

Our solicitors aim to take the pressure ‎away from our business clients and deal with defending claims in the most straightforward and cost-effective way. If circumstances dictate, we shall vigorously defend such actions on our client’s behalf; we pride ourselves on providing practical legal advice, as well as guidance throughout each step of the process.

We can draft your defence, advise on prospects and risks of the claim and likely damages, help you deal with disclosure, preparation of bundles, witness statements ‎and any applications which are required or provide strategic legal advice.
