The fees listed above are indicative estimates only and do not constitute a formal quote. The actual cost of bringing and defending an employment tribunal claim can vary significantly depending on the complexity of the case, the number of witnesses involved, and the length of the hearing. The more complex a case, the more time and expertise required by a senior solicitor (and therefore expense). The cost of each matter will vary on its facts.

Disbursements such as barrister fees and any applicable tribunal fees are not included in the stated prices and would be charged additionally; being subject to VAT as applicable. We recommend contacting us for a tailored fee estimate based on the specific details of your case.

A tribunal claim can last between six months and five years depending on the complexity and the stages required throughout.
