We are able to offer advice and assistance on any employment related issues. We can represent you whether you are an employer or employee.

In order to avoid disputes from arising, the employer should be getting it right at all times. For an employee the need is to protect your rights in a way which is both practical and cost effective.

  • Wrongful dismissal claims

The fee earners within the firm who carry out employment work are Mr Alan Ware and Mr Jonathan Hanley. The work carried out will involve advising you as an employee or an employer and providing advice on compromise/ settlement agreement.

Generally our charging rate in acting on employment matters will be £250.00 +VAT per hour. It is difficult to give a general indication of the overall costs of an employment case as it will very much depend upon its nature and the issues and complexities involved.

We would usually arrange an initial meeting with you in order that full details of the case can be obtained after which a better indication of the overall likely costs will be provided and confirmed in writing prior to you formally instructing us to act on your behalf.

Whatever you may need advice and assistance with, you can be sure that Cowling Swift & Kitchin will be with you every step of the way.
