All advice are subject to the signature of our terms and conditions and payment of the fees in the first instance.
All the work is carried out or supervised by Alain-Christian MONKAM.
Except for an employment tribunal claim which is longer (see below), most of the advice work of the firm should be provided to the client within 10 business days which include: the study of the facts (1 day), the summary of the case law (1/2 days), the drafting of the written advice (2/7 days).
We charge £450 per legal advice requested or per one document review or draft.
We charge £1,500 the first employee involved into the collective redundancies or into the business transfer and £500 each additional employee involved.

When the firm negotiates a settlement agreement, we may charge an additional success fees in excess of 13% of all the sums and compensations provided for by the agreement.
We charge £2,000 to advise you until the ACAS early conciliation + £3,000 until the end of the tribunal procedure, exclusive of Barrister's fees. These barrister's fees should vary from £5,000 to £10,000 depending on the number of days of hearing plus VAT.
Except our firm's and barrister's fees, you don't have to pay any fees to make an Employment Tribunal claim. If you lose an employment tribunal claim, there's a chance you may have to pay your defendant's costs of going to court.
The timescale of an employment tribunal claim varies and depends on the ACAS and the Tribunal phases. An Employment Tribunal claim must generally be brought within three months of the date of dismissal/resignation. In the first instance, you must contact ACAS and enter into Early Conciliation (to see if your claim can be settled) which lasts for one month. Afterwards, you can submit your claim to the Employment Tribunal that will serve it on your employer who has 28 days to respond. Thereafter, there are various stages including the exchanging of relevant documents, the preparation of a schedule of loss, the drafting of witness statements and, of course, the final hearing (within 6 to 12 months usually). With the help of Barrister, our law firm will assist you in these various steps.
