Defending an Unfair Dismissal Claim

These charges relate to providing advice and representation to employers in relation to defending unfair or wrongful dismissal claims brought before the Employment Tribunal by an employee.

We charge on between £2475.00 to £7,500 plus VAT for this work. This estimate is intended to give you some indication of costs. The actual cost to you will depend on a number of factors that we will discuss with you if you decide to instruct us.

Our charges are either:
a) Hourly
Based on our hourly charging rate of £200 per hour.

b) Fixed fees
Where we are able to offer fixed fees, these rates are approximately:

Additional costs you may have to pay

There may be other costs on top of our fees called disbursements. These are fees and charges that we will need to pay on your behalf as part of the process, such as barrister’s fees and expert fees.

Any additional fees will be discussed with you before they are incurred so that you have the opportunity to approve the expenditure. The cost of disbursements will vary on a case by case basis.

In normal cases the Employment Tribunal rules are that each party must bear their own legal costs, so there is only a small risk that you would have to pay any legal costs to the opposing party if you are not successful in defending the claim. If this situation did arise at any time during the claim, we would advise you and discuss the matter with you.
