Support for Tribunals

We make the complicated clearer

When workplace relationships break down, sometimes the only way to resolve the dispute is to seek a determination by Employment Tribunal. Our expert Employment team is here to help you navigate your way through what has become a complex process.

We have extensive experience in supporting clients through every stage of tribunals, from pre-claim conciliation to hearing and, if necessary, appeal. Our friendly, pragmatic advice will help you make every decision with confidence and achieve the outcome you require.


With you every step of the way

Attending an Employment Tribunal claim can be daunting and both you and your employer can discuss terms of a settlement at any stage of a claim.  We’ll always advise you on the merits and the value of settling (or indeed, not settling) throughout the process and provide detailed guidance and support to establish the best way forward for you. We’re easy to talk to, flexible and always have your best interests at heart.

Typically a tribunal comprises five stages (list) and we can help you every step of the way:

  • ACAS early conciliation
  • Submitting a claim form (called an ET1)
  • Case Management directions (essentially a roadmap for the management of the claim)
  • Preliminary hearings
  • The hearing

We’re listed in the Legal 500 as having significant experience in large scale High Court and tribunal cases. However, the vast majority of employment disputes do not reach a final hearing and are resolved via ACAS or through party-to-party mediation.


We get the real world

If the tribunal doesn’t go your way, we have an impressive track record in the Employment Appeal Tribunal, including involvement in leading cases within the UK. We can examine judgements made at an Employment Tribunal to see if they contained an error of law or if all the relevant factors of the case were not fully assessed.  We will then consider an appeal of the judgment to the Employment Appeal Tribunal in order to attempt to overturn the decision.
