Why choose Hodge Jones & Allen?
Our lawyers will work by your side to understand what your requirements are and what you want to achieve. This could be:
- Negotiating favourable terms and an enhanced financial package in a settlement agreement.
- Avoiding a dismissal by challenging allegations of misconduct or under performance
- Assisting you in drafting a grievance
- Issuing a legal claim on your behalf
- Representing you in Employment Tribunal proceedings
We’re skilled at handling complex matters. The team has a proven track record of successfully running high value complex discrimination claims in the Employment Tribunal.
Most recently, we represented our client’s interests in a highly sensitive case where the employee wanted to remain in employment, which can often be difficult to achieve once lawyers become involved, demonstrating our sensitive yet robust defence of our clients’ interests.
Equally, we successfully defended a client accused of breaching confidentiality and post termination restrictions when they left to join a competitor who faced extreme pressure from their former employer.
Our specialist employment lawyers are recognised as leaders in their field. We regularly represent individuals who are accused of misconduct or are being performance managed. We guide them through the process, offering both technical and practical advice.
Our costs are highly competitive and transparent. If your employer is asking you to enter severance terms, we can usually negotiate that they pay all or most of your fees.
We understand that it can be difficult and stressful to challenge or enforce your employment rights, especially when it’s against your existing employer.
Our focus is to ensure that you’re advised clearly and properly at the outset, to enable you to feel in control and supported to make the right decision at every stage of the process.
