We are very experienced advising employee clients concerning employment law settlement agreements, and we usually sign off on many agreements every week. We provide a detailed service including giving advice as to legal rights and amending the agreements to make them commercially acceptable to sign and also pressing employers to waive non-compete covenants where reasonably necessary.
Legal Expense Insurance
We are regularly appointed as non-panel solicitors under such policies. We use our skill and experience to assist our clients in securing cover under such policies. It is sometimes fairly difficult to achieve cover under such policies, where claims are vetted by panel solicitors appointed by the insurance company. We usually support applications for cover with advice from our in-house barrister. We also raise complaints on behalf of our clients if the cover is refused or only granted after a long period of consideration- with requests for cover to be backdated to when the application for the cover was first submitted. We have agreed on hourly charge rates with the main insurer, DAS for undertaking insured work.
We are an approachable firm. There is no charge for initial telephone calls, and we can organise a fixed price meeting at a reasonable cost. We can also offer a conference with our in-house Counsel Kevin Harris where there is a difficult or complex legal issue for which advice is required.
We can also react very quickly, and in appropriate cases, we will endeavour to make arrangements for you to meet with us on the same day or organise a telephone conference for urgent advice.
Please contact Lawrence Rodkin, Partner on telephone number 020 8446 6223; email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These are reasonable and are set out on the fees page of our website.
