We understand that taking a case to the employment tribunal can be daunting. If it’s your first experience of the tribunal or court process, this, coupled with worries about the implications on professional and personal relationships, as well as your financial situation can add to the stress of a claim. However this is where the team at 7BR can help.

Our employment barristers are experienced, knowledgeable and approachable. They will take the time to talk you through the process and answer any questions you have from the beginning to help you feel more at ease, understand the relevant legislation and help prepare documents required before even reaching the tribunal.

7BR barristers act for claimants and respondents in all areas of employment law and are able to assist in the full range of cases: unfair dismissal including redundancies, working time, holiday pay, whistleblowing, issues arising from pregnancy, maternity and parental leave, discrimination on grounds of age, disability, race, religion, sex and sexual orientation as well as gender reassignment. Below we provide more detail on some of these areas but should you have any queries regarding your claim please email clerks@7br.co.uk.

Why instruct a barrister directly?

  • Save money by not paying two lawyers;
  • Some cases require the assistance of a solicitor and in these circumstances we are able to recommend the very best solicitors who we work with on a regular basis;
  • Greater control over costs as fees are agreed in advance and you decide when you need legal advice and support;
  • Getting advice directly from the person representing you in the hearing ensures greater understanding of your claim and enables better case preparation;
  • Maintain control of the direction of the case as the barrister only assists when asked.

Barristers are able to provide you with advice at any stage of the process, they can:

  • Assess how strong your claim is before you proceed;
  • Draft the relevant documents to issue proceedings;
  • Advise on next steps in the litigation process;
  • Represent you at tribunal;
  • Advise on settlement and act as independent adviser when dealing with a settlement agreement.
