Employment litigation for businesses

We often advise on complex and high value employment disputes, and robustly defend claims against our clients.

We have an excellent track-record of success in defending employment tribunal claims and we have substantial experience of defending complex and sensitive claims. Our team can help prepare your ET3, and grounds of resistance; but they are often called upon to advise at an earlier stage – as part of a disciplinary or grievance procedure – to advise on potential litigation risk.

We seek to resolve disputes by the most appropriate method whether via litigation in the employment tribunal or employment appeal tribunal; or via negotiation, ACAS conciliation or mediation.

We can advise on all employment related claims in the employment tribunal and employment appeal tribunal; including:

  • Complex and sensitive discrimination claims  
  • Unfair dismissal – including automatically unfair dismissal – claims
  • TUPE related dismissal claims
  • Wrongful dismissal claims
  • Unlawful deductions from wages claims
  • Whistleblowing claims  
  • Equal pay claims
  • Breach of contract
