Duxburys Solicitors Ltd specialises solely in employment law.
I offer friendly, expert advice. 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 employing staff.
After an initial meeting there is no obligation to take further advice. If you would like further work done on your behalf, I will give you an estimate of my likely fees by email and will not go ahead until you have agreed that you would like me to do so.
If you are an employee who is having problems at work or have been “made an offer” to terminate your employment under a settlement agreement, there is almost always a period of uncertainty until the issue has been resolved. Taking legal advice and getting support at an early stage can make a real difference to the outcome.
Although there are no guarantees, there is often room to negotiate better terms than those offered to an employee in a draft settlement agreement.
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 they may have with their employees.
I provide an informal setting for meetings in my home in central Tunbridge Wells where I usually see clients. Occasionally I visit clients at their offices or an agreed location.
