Choosing The Best Settlement Agreement Solicitor For You
Choosing the right solicitor to help with your Settlement Agreement can be daunting. Obviously, at Lincs Law Employment Solicitors, we would like you to choose us. As a specialist Employment Law practice, we are able to draw on a combined 80 years’ experience helping people with their employment law problems and advising them on their Settlement Agreements.
We understand work problems are stressful and affect you, your family and every part of your life. At such a difficult time, making a decision as to where to get the right help just adds to the pressure. The wrong decision can be costly, both in money and time. Again, we would like you to choose us, but even more than that, we want you to get the right help. To make sure you are getting the best Settlement Agreement Solicitor, you need to ask the questions below:-
Are You Choosing Specialist Settlement Agreement Lawyers?
A Settlement Agreement is a type of contract whereby an employee will waive and settle all rights and claims they have against their employer in exchange, usually, for a compensatory payment. Also, in most cases, the Settlement Agreement will be the document which ends the employee’s employment. Therefore, once the Settlement Agreement is signed, the employee will usually have lost their job and will no longer be able to bring a claim against their employer.
Given the significance of such a contract, you need to make sure you are taking your Settlement Agreement to specialists who are fully up to date and are able to assist. Gone are the days when solicitors could just do a bit of everything, you need someone who spends their full working week dealing with Settlement Agreements and employment law problems. Lincs Law Employment Solicitors are a specialist employment law practice, we simply don’t do anything else.
Does The Employment Law Team Have The Experience To Advise On Your Settlement Agreement?
Whether you choose a large or small firm is a matter of personal preference. However, an army of conveyancers will be of little use in assisting with your Settlement Agreement. You need to make sure the team you trust with your matter has experience you can draw upon to get the right result.
At Lincs Law Employment Solicitors, you can choose whichever one of our fully qualified employment solicitors or barristers you want to work with. They will be responsible for your matter from start to finish. We will not pass your matter on to an unqualified junior member of staff. Not only will your employment lawyer be fully qualified and very experienced in their own right, they can draw upon a team with over 80 years’ specialist employment law experience.
Will the Settlement Agreement Solicitor Provide All The Information You Need To Make An Informed Choice?
Employees are often told that the solicitor will just “sign off” the Settlement Agreement which leaves the client with little help about what they are signing or the consequences of doing so. We are also aware of solicitors who will not discuss any employment background with their clients and will only discuss the Settlement Agreement itself. In such circumstances, how can the client know what their options are and whether the offer made to them is fair? Also, how can the solicitor be sure they have given that client good and helpful advice?
At Lincs Law Employment Solicitors, we provide assistance and advice on Settlement Agreements for a fixed price (usually covered by the employer’s contribution). That fixed price includes your choice of a telephone, video or face to face appointment of unlimited duration. In that appointment, your Settlement Agreement Solicitor will:-
- discuss the circumstances of your situation;
- advise you in respect of your Settlement Agreement;
- draw to your attention any potential Employment Tribunal claims being settled; and,
- in the event you choose not to sign the Settlement Agreement, provide an estimate of fees for any additional work. This will include a discussion of possible funding options;
- alternatively, if you do decide to sign the Settlement Agreement, arrange for the return of your signed document to your employer; and,
- confirm their advice in full and in writing so you have a comprehensive record of your discussions
Does The Settlement Agreement Solicitor Have Any Client Reviews?
The Settlement Agreement solicitor you choose should be able to refer you to client reviews or testimonials. At Lincs Law Employment Solicitors, the profile page of each of our solicitors provides details of their latest reviews with a link to an independent website with third party verified reviews. Those reviews are for that particular solicitor, so you know what other clients have said about the lawyer you have chosen.
Are Settlement Agreement Fees And Charges Clear And Transparent?
At Lincs Law Employment Solicitors, our fees for Settlement Agreements are set out clearly on our website at https://lincslaw.co.uk/fees/settlement-agreements/
The fixed cost appointments, as described above, depend upon which of our solicitors you would like to see. The choice is yours. For many people, that first appointment will be covered by a contribution made by their employer.
Does Your Settlement Agreement Solicitor Provide Any Free Advice?
We understand that you want to be able to speak to someone about your case to make sure they can help. Choosing a Settlement Agreement solicitor to work with is a very personal decision as you need to have confidence in them and be comfortable discussing your case. At Lincs Law Employment Solicitors we provide a free initial telephone consultation with your chosen lawyer so you can discuss your matter before committing yourself.
