Even to instruct a solicitor and have a meeting and draft a letter before action can cost a few hundred pounds. We will do that for a fixed cost that is proportionate to the value of the claim and relevant documents.

Even when a case is likely to succeed, the costs recovered never really reflect the time spent, or all costs spent. With many employees having litigation insurance, there is an increasing need for Employers to have an expert from the outset to avoid the ‘nothing to lose’ attitude of some employees. So often, a case is settled, however properly the Employer has behaved, simply because the Employee knows they will get something by making a claim.
