Our Specialist Employment Law Team

Our lawyers in Newport and Pontypool act for employees in disputes that range from disciplinary meetings to representing them in unfair dismissal claims at the Employment Tribunal. Our focus is to find appropriate solutions and remedies for you to try and help you at what is a stressful time.

What can we do for you?

Our specialist employment lawyers in Newport and Pontypool can offer advice in relation to:


‘No Win No Fee’ Employment Advice

Some cases are suitable for a Contingency Fee Agreement (No Win No Fee). This will depend on the type of case and we are happy to discuss this option with you.

Some of our clients have cover provided by legal expenses insurance. If you believe you have cover please let us know and bring your policy documents to our meeting.

Fixed fee appointments

We offer a range of fixed fee services for employment advice.

Employment Tribunal

Simple case: £1,500 – £2,500 (excluding VAT)

Medium complexity case: £2,500 – £3,500 (excluding VAT)

High complexity case: £5,000 – £10,000 (excluding VAT)

Factors that could make a case more complex:


The stages set out above are an indication and if some of stages above are not required, the fee will be reduced. You may wish to handle the claim yourself and only have our advice in relation to some of the stages. This can also be arranged on your individual needs.

How long will my matter take? 

The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved. If a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation, your case is likely to take 1-8 weeks. If your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case is likely to take 24-36 weeks. This is just an estimate and we will of course be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information and as the matter progresses.
