Why do I need to get advice from a Solicitor?

For a settlement agreement to be valid, you have to take legal advice from an independent adviser on the terms and effect of the agreement and, in particular, how it prevents you from making claims in an employment tribunal, once it is signed. This is to make sure that you are protected and not inadvertently signing away your rights.  We have a huge amount of experience in negotiating the terms of settlement agreements, to make sure they are fair and also that you are being paid adequate compensation for any claims you might have.
