We are a firm of solicitors with an office conveniently located close by at 32 Bloomsbury Street, London WC1, (close to Tottenham Court Road Underground Station, )
Employment Law and Settlement Agreements consist of a critical area of our work.
Our Employment Law Team consist of partner Lawrence Rodkin (who has been undertaking Employment Law work since 1985), Kevin Harris (who is an Employment specialist barrister called to the bar in 1999) as well as other solicitors and fee earners.
We act for both employers and employees.
We have an Employment Tribunal caseload, and every week we sign off many Settlement Agreements.
Approaching Simons Rodkin
We are a very approachable firm. We do not charge for short initial telephone calls and if you wish we can set up an initial fixed fee meeting. Alternatively, we can arrange an initial telephone conference.
Telephone conferences are becoming somewhat fashionable recently both in terms of time saved and reduced costs.
To contact us, all you need to do is email with your details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our fees are very competitive and reasonable and are set out upon our website.
The current time charge rate of partner Lawrence Rodkin is £250.00 per hour exclusive and for our Employment Law barrister Kevin Harris £200.00 per hour exclusive. Our junior solicitors and paralegals are at lower rates per hour.
In relation to Employment Law Settlement Agreements, which we are very experienced in, generally, our cost in representing an employee client or a material contribution towards costs are paid by the employer.
If the agreement is signed off with no amendments at all – which we rarely recommend, then the contribution provided by the employer would typically be sufficient. You will not have to pay anything more.
However, draft Settlement Agreements usually are very onerous, and it normally requires considerable effort to amend to make such agreements commercially acceptable for an employee to sign. The amount of employer’s costs is negotiable with the employer as well as the other terms of the agreement.
