I love talking to clients, exploring their options and working with them to meet their goals. I always feel quietly chuffed when a client is happy we have achieved the outcomes they want.

Disputes and Claims

James Legal provide a fresh approach to employment advice and assistance in a range of areas including unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal, Settlement Agreements, unpaid wages, equal pay, disciplinary and grievance issues, discrimination, confidentiality and post-termination restrictions, PM benefits, working time and time off.

Unfair Dismissal

Have you been dismissed, do you feel it is unfair? Has your employer dismissed you for a reason which you think is wrong? Have they dismissed you in a way which is procedurally unfair? If you have been employed for over 2 years and feel that your dismissal has been unfair, please give us a call to find out more.


Discrimination is sadly more common than we would all wish. Do you feel that you have been subjected to discrimination in the workplace? Discrimination usually occurs on the grounds of sex, race, disability, sexual orientation, etc. If you feel that you have been discriminated in any way by having been dismissed or being treated less favourably, please give us a call to discuss your case in more detail.


Do you have a problem at work? Do you feel that your employer is not listening? If you have a grievance or require assistance in raising a grievance with your employer, please give us a call and we would be more than happy to assist you in dealing with your grievance and guiding you through the grievance procedure.


Are you about to be made redundant? Are you at risk of redundancy or have just been made redundant? If you have concerns about your redundancy and feel that you have been unfairly selected or something is not quite right about the redundancy procedure, please give us a call.

Settlement Agreements

You may have been given a Settlement Agreement to sign. Whilst these are quite common it’s important to know what you’re signing and its affect. Are you getting what you are entitle too? Do you have a claim worth more than is being offered? Should you be signing the agreement or pursuing a claim? Have you reached an amicable agreement with your employer? Settlement Agreements often need to be dealt with quickly, we are very used to that and more than happy to meet with you for an urgent appointment. For advice on Settlement Agreements please do not hesitate to contact us.
