We recently obtained a significant settlement for one of our clients who was disabled and had been discriminated against. In addition, she was unfairly dismissed.
Because we are a not for profit law firm our client got access to our expert employment law advice free of charge. Without our not for profit advice the client would not have been able to afford to bring this substantial case in front of the employment tribunal and she would have been denied access to justice. The case was complex and took a year to conclude and our client would not have been able to progress her claim to a successful conclusion unless we had acted for her free of charge.
We were also able to provide expert advice from a specialist employment law barrister who agreed to support our client on a “no win, no fee basis”. As well as providing this expert advice free of charge the barrister’s commitment to the case reassured our client that her claim was worthwhile and that she should pursue it.
We were delighted to work with our client over an extended period on complex areas of employment law and share in her satisfaction on a successful outcome.
