Settlement Agreements – formally known as Compromise Agreements – are often offered in redundancy situations. You can negotiate the terms of the agreement or even refuse it altogether if it’s in your best interests.
A Settlement Agreement is a contract between an employer and an employee, in which the employee waives their right to bring legal action. In return, the employer offers some kind of incentive, such as a severance package and/or a reference.

Why Work With Us?
One Person to deal with. You will know the individual solicitor dealing with your matter so that you do you won’t speak to someone different every time you call.
You can be sure it is a solicitor dealing with your matter from the outset – not an unqualified person “supervised” by a solicitor.
Meet in Person
When you need to. Being able to meet and discuss matters face to face can be very beneficial, especially when difficulties arise or matters need to progress rapidly.
We are a firm with a depth of expertise. You may need assistance in the future on a range of related issues, so why not establish a relationship with a firm that can advise on more than just your house move.
No Referral Fees for Anyone
Some estate agents recommend a conveyancing firm because of “referral” payments they might receive. We get a lot of our business from family or friends recommending us, and our policy is not to pay referral fees.
