Our pricing for bringing and defending claims for unfair or wrongful dismissal
£1,000-£2,500 (excluding VAT, charged at 20%)
£4,000-£6,000 (excluding VAT, charged at 20%)
£10,000-£40,000 (excluding VAT, charged at 20%)
We charge based on an hourly rate which varies depending on the member of staff dealing with your matter. Our lowest hourly rate is £250 and our highest hourly rate is £550. The seniority of the members of staff dealing with your case will depend on its complexity. We will discuss this with you when you instruct us.
Factors that could make a case more complex:
There will be an additional charge for attending a Tribunal Hearing of £2,000 - £4,000 per day (excluding VAT, charged at 20%). Generally, we would allow 1-5 days depending on the complexity of your case.
Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as court fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
Counsel's fees estimated between £2,000 to £6,000 per day excluding VAT, charged at 20% (depending on experience of the advocate) for attending a Tribunal Hearing (including preparation).
The fees set out above cover all of the work in relation to the following key stages of a claim:
The stages set out above are an indication and if some of stages above are not required, the fee will be reduced. You may wish to handle the claim yourself and only have our advice in relation to some of the stages. This can also be arranged on your individual needs.
How long will my matter take?
The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved. If a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation, your case is likely to take 6-12 weeks. If your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case is likely to take 40-80 weeks (due to the time it can take for a tribunal to list the hearing). This is just an estimate and we will of course be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information and as the matter progresses.
