Employment FeesAt Stoke White, we offer a range of services for your employment matters. Since each case is different, we tailor our advice and service according to your needs and instruction. The best way to get a quote is to call us today for a free initial consultation where you can explain your situation to one of our consultants. One of our experts will advise you on the best way to proceed and give you a more accurate cost that you can consider without obligation.
To get an idea of the costs involved we have prepared the following price ranges for simple, medium and high complexity cases (excluding VAT) but please note that the fees will be based on hourly rates.
The complexity of your case depends on a number of factors and these can be identified and discussed at your initial free consultation.
Simple case: £3,000 – £7,000
Medium complexity case: £7,000 – 12,000
High complexity case: £12,000 – £15,000
Services included within our fees and the key stages of an application:
• Taking your initial instructions
• Where necessary, entering into pre-claim conciliation
• Preparing a claim
• Reviewing and advising on claim made by the other party
• Exploring settlement and negotiating settlement options
• Preparing for a Preliminary Hearing
• Taking witness statements and drafting statements
• Agreeing a list of issues and the chronology
• Preparation and attendance at Final Hearing, including instructions to Counsel
• Counsels fees are always separately charged.
• Disbursements are not included in the fees above and can include fees payable to the court or those required for independent expert reports such as medical reports.
You do not need to instruct us for all of these areas if you feel you would like to instruct us on specific aspects of your case then the cost of your case will take this into consideration and you will only be charged for what you require.
We unfortunately cannot take cases on a no-win-no-fee basis but we are able to accept cases which are paid for by legal expenses insurance.
We can advise on your settlement agreement, if you have been provided with one and need to know whether it is a good deal or not.
How long will my matter take?
The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved. If your matter is relatively straightforward then your case is likely to take 4-6 weeks. If your claim is more complex, for example, if there is substantial opposition from interested parties, or if there is a delay in receiving the documents we need, it may take longer. If your case proceeds to a final hearing, then this can take 26-52 weeks but this is an estimate and we will of course provide a more accurate timescale prior to starting any work and once we have established the facts of your matter.
