Slater and Gordon’s Employment Lawyers offer a range of options to pay for and to progress your employment claim. Not many people are aware that we can often provide initial legal advice and beyond on a fixed fee basis.
Slater and Gordon, like many other law firms, can help you with your employment claim on the usual hourly rate basis. Our Employment Lawyers charge a range of hourly rates depending on their experience and which location they are based. Time is carefully recorded by our lawyers to ensure that you only pay for the time spent on your matter.
Slater and Gordon also work with many legal expense insurers who will fund at least some of your fees if you are covered by an insurance policy that contains legal cover. These policies will often provide you with funding for employment claims (up to certain limits) that have reasonable prospects of success where you have exhausted your employer’s internal processes.
If you do not have access to a legal expenses insurance, then once an Employment Lawyer has assessed your claim, we may in exceptional cases be able to offer you a form of No Win No Fee agreement, meaning that you either don’t pay, or you pay a limited amount, if you don’t settle or win your claim.
In some employment cases, we can also offer an agreement where Slater and Gordon takes a percentage of any increase in compensation we secure for you where an offer is already on the table from your employer.
Slater and Gordon can often combine the agreements referred to above to suit your particular claim, your needs and your budget. Such arrangements are only offered in certain cases and where the merits and cost benefit analysis justifies it.
