Employment Law Guidance Fees
Each matter is unique
Each claim is unique, and this is a guideline only. The exact cost will depend on the individual circumstances of the case and when we know the size and likely complexity of the claim and the amount of work involved, we shall then be able to inform you of the likely cost and also time involved. We shall prepare a budget for your case before we commence any proceedings in a tribunal on your behalf.
The fixed fee for 1 hour will be £125 + VAT. This is in line with the Law Society guidelines.
Each matter is dealt with by an individual fee earner so that you will know who to contact when any queries arise. Our approximate charges are set out below:
|Cormac Cawley – Solicitor
||£250.00 + VAT per hour (*Please note this can also increase to £300 + VAT depending on the complexity of the matter. The fixed fee for 1 hour will be £125 + VAT. This is in line with the Law Society guidelines.)
|Amount of Charge
|Charged in units of 1/10th of an hour
||Routine Letters and Routine Telephone Calls (made and received)
|Fee Earner’s Hourly Rate + VAT
||Other work on considering and drafting documents, meeting with you, attending experts or counsel, attending hearings at an Employment Tribunal
||You do not have to pay any fee to start a claim in an Employment Tribunal.
|Barristers’ & Experts’ Fees
||Payable in addition to our fees – to be agreed with you in advance

All disbursements will need to be paid in addition to the fees charged. These costs are related to your matter which are payable to third parties such as barristers and experts. We handle the payment of disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
This depends very much on the complexity of each case. A typical disputed matter can take between 6 months and 2 years or more to reach a conclusion.
However, we do recommend that you telephone us on 020 8866 6464 to discuss your matter further as the above schedule on costs and time should be used as a guide only.
