If you require an Employment Solicitor to advise on the terms of a Settlement Agreement, we can provide you with the expert assistance you are looking for.
A settlement agreement (formerly known as a compromise agreement) is a legally binding agreement between an employer and an employee. Commonly, under the terms of the agreement the employee agrees not to pursue a potential claim against their employer or former employer, in return for financial compensation. However, a settlement agreement will not be legally binding unless the employee obtains independent legal advice prior to signing.
I would like to thank you for making the process of my matter as painless and simple as possible. I would have no hesitation in recommending you
At Wilson Browne Solicitors our expert employment team regularly advises individuals on the terms of their settlement agreements, ensuring that the Agreement is binding and that they get the best possible deal. We try to make the process as easy as possible for you and we can provide the advice either over the telephone or at one of our offices in Northampton, Kettering, Corby, Higham Ferrers, Wellingborough and Leicester.
Our team also understands that, when a settlement agreement has been offered, the relationship between the employer and employee has often broken down or become strained. If that is the case, we will assist by liaising directly with your employer on your behalf, minimising the contact you have with them. Where necessary, we can also conduct negotiations on your behalf to help achieve the best possible settlement for you.
In terms of costs, in the majority of cases the employer will provide a provision for legal costs as part of the settlement agreement we shall work to that provision, wherever possible.
If all legal transactions could be dealt with as swiftly and easily completed, the legal profession would have a much better reputation.
