Duxburys Solicitors Ltd is a small practice specialising solely in employment law.
I work from home in Tunbridge Wells, which provides an informal setting for meetings.
I do not charge for initial telephone enquiries. My hourly rate is £200 plus VAT. A first meeting usually lasts between 45 minutes and 1 hour 15 minutes, which equates to fees of between £150 and £250 plus VAT. My fees are competitive as I do not have the overheads of running a separate office or paying staff.
After a first meeting there is no obligation to take further advice. You may feel comfortable taking things forward yourself. If you would like me to do further work on your behalf, I will send you an estimate of my likely fees by email and will not go ahead with any further work until you have confirmed that you would like me to do so.
For employees, having problems at work or being “made an offer” to terminate your employment under a settlement agreement almost always causes a period of stress and uncertainty. Taking legal advice and obtaining support at an early stage can make a real difference to the outcome. My aim is to offer friendly, expert advice tailored to your needs so that you have a clear idea of the options available to you.
For employers, it is vital that employees are treated fairly in order to minimise the risk of employment tribunal claims. I offer pragmatic advice to help employers resolve any problems or issues they may have in the workplace.
