Disputes and Employment Tribunals

Employment law, Newbury, Berkshire.

Not all disputes end up in Tribunals

Most of our work involves keeping our clients out of litigation. But sometimes you just have to fight. We have 50 years combined experience of litigation and of presenting our clients’ cases in the best possible light.  Employment Tribunal litigation is about:

  • Knowing the rules,
  • Understanding the law, and
  • Applying the rules and law to our clients’ particular factual circumstances.

Years of experience 

We can anticipate the other side’s motivations and likely next steps. On those firm foundations, we then fight our client’s case with energy, integrity and aggression to ensure that we win.  And, in the vast majority of cases, we do win. Recently, we have fought cases dealing with:

  • Unfair dismissal
  • Constructive dismissal
  • Discrimination (sex, race, age, disability, religion/belief)
  • Whistleblowing
  • Breach of contract
  • Restrictive covenants

We also advise our clients on the merits of their case; which means we will tell you if you’re likely to lose.  If this is what we find, we can help negotiate a sensible settlement.

How to choose the right Lawyer

Why Choose Fenton Elliott?

Specialists in employment and family law

We are specialists in employment and family law. We don’t do anything else. Nothing to distract our focus. No pretending we are great at everything. We just strive to excel in our one little bit of law and focus on doing it to the best of our ability every day..

We provide clear, unambiguous communication. You will not need to refer to a Latin dictionary and you will not have to struggle with long, convoluted sentences. Our style guru is Ernest Hemingway. Basically, a typical Hemingway novel is written in simple, direct, unadorned prose and that’s what we try to do..

Our individual clients come from a range of backgrounds and from across the country as well as in West Berkshire/Oxfordshire. This means we use our experience of working with IT companies for the benefit of accountants and vice versa. We bring the best bits of how some businesses work to our other clients. And we act for both employers and employees, so we know how the other side thinks, what their objectives are and how to use this for our client’s advantage. Poacher turned gamekeeper (and back again).

We are competitively priced against our peers. And because we specialise in family and employment law, we are experienced and efficient at delivering our services. This means we work quickly, which in turn keeps your costs down.

We are responsive. Some professional advisers gloat about returning your call within 24 hours. Honestly! If you need help now, 24 hours is not helpful. We will always return your call within 2 hours, usually sooner.

We don’t sit on the fence. You will actually get an answer. You will get advice tailored for your needs, not some generic waffle about best practice.
