Employment Solicitors in Dulwich

We have successfully acted for a large number of clients in the Dulwich area, in which we are based, and throughout London, in settlement agreements, employment tribunal proceedings, preparing employment contracts, policies and procedures and for general employment law advice. Employment law is a complex area in which we are able to provide specialist advice.

We are experienced and adept at dealing with tough adversaries, and are robust negotiators. Over the years, we have secured excellent settlements for employees across fields ranging from financial services, insurance, medical, and technology sectors. We also act for employers, including large retailers, providing commercially sound, cost-effective advice and representation.

For the sake of our clients, we believe in working towards a settlement, keeping matters outside of the Employment Tribunal or High Court. However, if litigation proves inevitable, our expertise and experience will put you in the strongest possible position to launch and win (or defend) your claim.

As the general rule with Employment Tribunal claims is that each side pays its own costs win or lose, it is important, if you are a Claimant or Respondent in a Tribunal claim, to limit your legal fees. Our business model means that we are able to provide a level or service equivalent to or better than many City firms for a fraction of the price.

Principal Solicitor, Sunita Knight-Webb, has a degree in law from Cambridge University, and over 20 years’ experience advising on employement law issues.

What Do You Need From Your Employment Solicitor near Dulwich?

Redundancy

Redundancy may happen because a workplace is closing down, or because fewer employees are (or are expected to be) needed for work of a particular kind. For the purposes of calculating statutory redundancy pay, the current limit on a week’s pay is £508. An employer will often offer an employee a settlement agreement in a voluntary or compulsory redundancy situation, for which the employee will be asked to seek legal advice.

Settlement agreements or Compromise Agreements

A Settlement Agreement (previously referred to as a Compromise Agreement) is an agreement in which an employee agrees to compromise his or her legal claims against the employer on agreed financial and other terms such as an agreed reference. Negotiating a Settlement Agreement can be a complicated process and Knight-Webb Solicitors have many years of experience in this field.
