At Hunt & Coombs, we have specialist lawyers with the technical ability and experience to provide advice and representation in complex areas of law.
We are the ideal place for you to come whenever you need legal advice or practical support.
Our legal fees for bringing and defending claims for unfair or wrongful dismissal are based on the complexity of a case:
Factors that could make a case more complex:
Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as court fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
Counsel’s fees, estimated between £500 to £1,200 per day (depending on experience of the advocate), for attending a Tribunal Hearing (including preparation of experts, GPs records and Psychiatric reports). The number of days that the Tribunal will last for depends on the complexity of the case and the number of witnesses.
We use electronic verification to support our client identity checks.
Electronic verification uses identification information such as name, address, etc. in electronic form and checks the information against numerous data sources to verify a person or business. This type of check will leave a minor footprint on the relevant credit file, but it will not harm an individual’s or business’s credit score.
We pass on the cost of this check to clients. The cost of the electronic verification check is:
The fees set out above cover all of the work in relation to the following key stages of a claim:
The stages set out above are an indication of the process. If some of the stages above are not required, the fee will be reduced. You may wish to handle the claim yourself and only have our advice in relation to some of the stages. This can also be arranged on your individual needs.
The time 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 a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation, your case is likely to take 2 – 6 weeks. If your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case could take 6 – 9 weeks. This is just an estimate and we will of course be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information and as the matter progresses.
