Employment Law

Employment law governs the relationship between employers and employees, providing a framework of rights and obligations. Solicitors specialising in employment law for employees can provide invaluable assistance in navigating various employment-related issues.

Our Panel

Legal Assist gives you access to a panel of employment law solicitor’s firms which specialise in employee’s rights. If you are experiencing issues in your workplace and you require legal advice and representation, then our panel may be able to deal with your case. They are experienced professionals in:

  • Employment Contracts
  • Unfair Dismissal
  • Redundancy
  • Discrimination
  • Workplace Rights
  • Grievances and
  • Disciplinary Actions
  • Whistleblowing
  • Employment Tribunals

Please note: We are a claims management company authorised and regulated by the financial conduct authority in respect of claims management activities, however this page is for non-regulated activities.

You do not need to use a claims management company for this matter. You do not need to use our panel solicitors either. You have the right to proceed with a solicitor’s firm or company of your own choice.

How Employment Solicitors Can Help Employees

  • Understanding Rights: Providing clear advice on employee rights and how to enforce them.
  • Strategic Guidance: Offering strategic advice on how to handle disputes and negotiations.
  • Documentation: Drafting and reviewing employment-related documents such as contracts, grievance letters, and tribunal claims.
  • Negotiation: Negotiating favourable terms in settlement agreements and redundancy packages.
  • Dispute Resolution: Mediation and negotiation to resolve disputes without litigation.
  • Representation: Representing employees in employment tribunals and court proceedings. Advocating on behalf of employees in hearings and negotiations.

If you are interested in discussing this with a solicitor’s firm on our panel, feel free to contact us.

Solicitor’s Fees

Fees vary from law firm to law firm. Some may charge you on hourly rates, fixed fees, or staged payment options. We do not deal with this aspect so if the price quoted by one of our panel members is too high or doesn’t seem competitive, you do not have to go with that law firm. It doesn’t cost you anything to have a conversation with them to see if they are the right fit for you and your circumstances. We do not charge you a fee for introducing you to any of our panel members and the initial telephone consultation with the solicitor’s firm is free of charge.

Legal Assist does not offer legal advice of any kind. Our panel solicitors may be able to offer their services to you however you are under no obligation to utilise their services after your initial consultation with them. Any solicitors firm we recommend is an independent firm from whom you will receive impartial professional legal advice from. We are paid a recommendation fee for successful introductions however this has no impact on the level of service you would receive with them or the fees that you would be charged by that panel member. You are also free to seek legal advice through a solicitor’s firm or legal advisor of your own choice or pursue this matter yourself for free.

No win No fee

Our panel solicitors can handle your case on a no win, no fee basis which means there’s nothing to pay upfront and nothing to pay if your case is unsuccessful.

If your case is successful, our panel solicitors take between 25%- 50% from your awarded compensation. This varies amongst our panel members and will be dependent on the law firm we recommend you to as well as your claim type.

Full terms & conditions will be included in your solicitor’s agreement so please read this carefully and speak to them if you are unsure of anything before signing. For more information, please visit our No win No fee page.

Clinical, Medical & Dental Negligence

If you had an elective surgery such as a total hip, knee or shoulder replacement, a complex trauma surgery or even a simple procedure which has gone terribly wrong, or perhaps you were misdiagnosed or your conditions worsened significantly after medical intervention, there may be grounds to make a claim for any malpractice which has caused injury, adverse effects, suffering or loss. This also includes child birth too. Negligence and breach cases come in many forms which can be genuine but costly mistakes, poor medical standards, or a serious breach of duty which can impact a patient’s health, safety, appearance, and wellbeing. Legal Assist has a dedicated panel of medical negligence solicitors which are specialists in complicated negligence matters. They have helped claimants all over the UK claim the compensation they deserve against the public and private health sectors. You can start a medical negligence claim within 3 years of finding out about the negligence or breach, or if you were a child at the time of the treatment, you have 3 years from the date of your 18th Birthday to make a claim.
