Civil & Employment
Hine Solicitors can advise you regarding Civil Claims involving disputed estates, debt collection and employment issues. Any Civil Claim demands a blend of skills. We ensure that pursuing or defending a claim is worthwhile having assessed the financial risk. We also have the experience to ensure that the law is precisely interpreted.
A rational, impartial partner
Making a claim has inherent risks. If you sue and win, you are unlikely to recover all your legal costs. You also need to be sure the defendant can actually pay. Should you lose, you may have your legal costs, and the majority of the other party’s, to bear. Before taking any case forward, we will always ensure you have good grounds for success. In many cases, we look to the small claims court which is a cost effective route for pursuing sums less than £5000.
Employment law is one of the most rapidly developing areas of law and knowing your rights can make all the difference between helplessness and empowerment. Our specialist employment team can provide professional assistance and offer you straightforward, clear, common sense advice on employment issues.
We have experience in all aspects of employment law and can provide expertise within individual practice areas. Our main services are:
We can advise as to whether you were dismissed for fair reasons and in accordance with the law. We will advise whether you are entitled to be paid for your full notice period and if you can claim compensation.
We can assist if you believe you are being treated less favourably than others due to age, disability, equal pay, gender, pregnancy, marital status, race, religious belief, sex, or sexual orientation.
Drafting contracts of employment
We can assist you with understanding your rights whether or not you have a written employment contract; how to obtain written terms upon request; and what to do if your employer makes unlawful changes to your terms of employment.
