We will provide detailed legal advice to our clients  & re-negotiate the settlement package-if our clients wish us to do this.

We will include additional provisions in the draft agreement where reasonably necessary to protect the interests of our clients.

We have the availability of our in house consultant employment law barrister, kevin harris, for specialist advice should this be needed.
