Our aim is to provide cost-effective advice and to go about dealing with the case to ensure the lowest cost to you. Generally speaking, you will be charged at an hourly rate for the work that we carry out on your behalf.
It is impossible to say at the outset of the case what it will cost to defend the claim, as all cases differ. However, we will give you the best estimate that we can and provide you with regular cost updates.
We understand that there is not only a financial cost to you in defending a claim; there is a cost to your business in terms of the time that it takes for you to deal with the claim (for example, if you are required to attend as a witness at the Tribunal). It may not always be in the interests of your business to defend a claim through to a final hearing. We will therefore discuss ways that you may be able to resolve the dispute more cheaply, for example, by entering into settlement negotiations via ACAS.
