Employment Solicitors serving clients in Dulwich, Brixton and throughout London

We have successfully acted for a large number of clients in Dulwich, Brixton and throughout London, in settlement agreements, employment tribunal proceedings, preparing employment contracts, policies and procedures and for general employment law advice. Employment law is a complex area in which we are able to provide specialist advice.

We are experienced and adept at dealing with tough adversaries, and are robust negotiators. Over the years, we have secured excellent settlements for employees across fields ranging from financial services, insurance, medical, and technology sectors. We also act for employers, including retailers and charities, providing commercially sound, cost-effective advice and representation.

For the sake of our clients, we believe in working towards a settlement, keeping matters outside of the Employment Tribunal or High Court. However, if litigation proves inevitable, our expertise and experience will put you in the strongest possible position to launch and win (or defend) your claim.

As the general rule with Employment Tribunal claims is that each side pays its own costs win or lose, it is important, if you are a Claimant or Respondent in a Tribunal claim, to limit your legal fees. Our business model means that we are able to provide a level or service equivalent to or better than many City firms for a fraction of the price.

Principal Solicitor, Sunita Knight-Webb, has a degree in law from Cambridge University, and over 20 years’ experience advising on employment law issues.

This firm is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (see www.sra.org.uk/code-of-conduct.page). SRA no. 421748.

What Do You Need From Your Employment Solicitor near Dulwich?


Redundancy may happen because a workplace is closing down, or because fewer employees are (or are expected to be) needed for work of a particular kind. Where the employee has at least 2 years’ continuous employment, he or she will be entitled to statutory redundancy pay. Statutory redundancy pay is calculated on a formula based on the employee’s weekly salary (up to the statutory cap) multiplied by the number of years’ continuous employment (up to a maximum of 20 years) with a multiplier of 1.5 for each year of continuous employment in which the employee is at least 41 years old. An employer will often offer an employee a settlement agreement in a voluntary or compulsory redundancy situation, for which the employee will be asked to seek legal advice.

Complaints Procedure

We are committed to providing a high-quality legal service to all our clients. When something goes wrong, we need you to tell us about it. This will help us address your concerns, and improve our standards.

In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the person who is working on your case to discuss your concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues. If you would like to make a formal complaint, then you should follow our complaints procedure (below). Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.

Our complaints procedure

If you have a complaint, please contact Sunita Knight-Webb, the Compliance Officer, with the details.

What will happen next?

  1. We will send you a letter acknowledging receipt of your complaint, enclosing a copy of this procedure.
  2. The Compliance Officer will investigate your complaint. This will involve reviewing your matter file. We will send you our detailed reply or invite you to discuss the matter within 21 days of receiving your complaint. Alternatively, the Compliance Officer may ask another solicitor unconnected with the matter to investigate your complaint and report to the Compliance Officer. If a meeting is held, we will write to you within 7 days to confirm what took place and any solutions we have agreed with you.
  3. At this stage, if you are still not satisfied, you can write to us again. We will then arrange to review the decision. We will ask another solicitor unconnected with this matter to review your complaint and respond to the Compliance Officer within 14 days. We will let you know how long this process will take.
  4. We will let you know the result of the review within 7 days of the end of the review.
  5. If we have to change any of the timescales above, we will let you know and explain why.

What to do if we do not resolve your complaint

If you are still dissatisfied, you can then contact the Legal Ombudsman about your complaint. They will look at your complaint independently. Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:

  • Within six months of receiving our final response to your complaint; and
  • No more than one year from the date of the act or omission complained about; or
  • No more than one year from the date when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.

For further information, you should contact the Legal Ombudsman at PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton WV1 9WJ (call: 0300 5550333 between 9am to 5pm; email: enquiries@legalombudsman.org.uk) or refer to www.legalombudsman.org.uk.
