Last week I assisted a client with a Settlement Agreement. I was really pleased to receive the following 5 Star Review. Read on for more…
More frequently I am assisting clients with Settlement Agreements as employers try to reduce staffing costs due to the pandemic. A Settlement Agreement is a contract between an employee and an employer which will (usually) end the employee’s employment and settle any rights or claims they may have in exchange for compensation.
Much of the time Settlement Agreements are straightforward, and the parties are content to be parting on amicable grounds. That said, even in straightforward cases, these agreements can reach to well over 15 pages and contain important clauses that clients should properly have explained to them.
The lovely client I assisted last week was content with her Settlement Agreement but nervous at the rights she was giving up. I was over the moon to have put her at ease and make the legal process as stress free for her as possible. Her 5 Star Review is set out below.
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a legal adviser?
I took Voluntary Redundancy
How did Sophie Goodwill help you?
Sophie helped me go through and complete my Voluntary Redundancy settlement. She was extremely helpful, friendly, and made everything clear. As this was something I had never gone through before I was nervous and unsure, but Sophie’s friendly and professional nature made this so easy!
Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?
What could they have done better?
I cannot see how Sophie could have improved the service she provided.
