Have you been offered a settlement? If so, you are legally required to see a solicitor to get your agreement signed off.
It makes sense to check out the agreement properly. Our solicitors will tell you if you have been offered a good settlement and get your agreement signed off promptly. If there’s room for improvement it’s worth negotiating with your employer.
Should your employer not be willing to negotiate we can take your case to litigation. Whether you want to handle things yourself or ask us to do it for you, you can be sure that you are getting the very best advice.

Don’t just sign on the dotted line
When you’ve been involved in an employment issue you may have been offered a settlement in exchange for giving up any employment claims. This can appear to be a straightforward matter to be signed off so you can get your payment – but don’t sign without getting your settlement agreement reviewed by our experts. (It’s a legal requirement that the SA is signed off by a legal adviser.)
It’s wise to get advice on whether you’re being offered a fair settlement. Our employment solicitors can negotiate on your behalf to get you the best possible deal. This means that you may get:
- Better financial compensation
- Your legal fees covered
- Tax advice to ensure you don’t lose any part of your settlement unnecessarily
- Control over what your employer can say about your exit from the company, including in references
