6 Benefits of fixed fee employment law advice

Employment law can be complex, time consuming and, where things go wrong, expensive. That’s why an increasing number of employers are moving towards LAW to help them stay on the right side of the law while achieving their commercial aims – a high quality and cost-effective fixed fee option to that of a traditional employment law firm.

The all-inclusive fixed fee service provides comprehensive support to your business on all aspects of employment law and HR. Our team of experienced, legally qualified advisors work with you to get to know you, your organisation and your aims. Clients tell us they value our fast commercial approach, the predictability of pricing and the close partnerships we develop with the in-house teams.


Annual costs are truly capped

Advisory and compliance support is unlimited, and when you take our advice, our market-leading insurance cover will cover the cost of employment tribunals. This includes legal defence costs, settlements and awards. If you receive a tribunal claim, it will be handled by your employment lawyer, giving you the best chance of a successful defence.


Documentation compliance

At the start of our partnership, your employment lawyer will conduct a thorough audit of your existing documentation, work with you to plug any gaps, and ensure that it remains up to date throughout the life of your relationship with us. Clients also have access to our exclusive, extensive online suite of employment law documentation and guidance notes.


No lip service to client care

Every client business is different, and because of this we have a dedicated client care team who will keep in regular contact with you. You’ll often be asked for feedback on the support we provide, and you’ll also have the opportunity to take part in our annual client survey. In our most recent client survey, 98% of our clients said they would recommend us.


We’ll get you there faster

Traditional law firms are based around revenue generation, meaning they have an incentive to drag issues out. With fixed fee, your employment lawyer is focussed on helping you reach the outcome you want as quickly as possible, meaning you can get back to building a successful business. But rest assured: we only rush when you want us to.


We’re open all hours

Life isn’t 9 to 5, and neither is your business. As well as your dedicated employment lawyer, you’ll have the constant backup of our in-house, qualified, 24/7 legal team.


There are no hidden extras

Law firms sometimes offer retainers, but these often contain exclusions or limits on usage. With LAW, all-inclusive means exactly that. One thing is the same: we never compromise on service.
