Myself and my colleagues in the Employment team have expertise in advising employees who have been presented with a Settlement Agreement by their employer or individuals who are wishing to negotiate an exit from their current place of work which more often than not will result in a Settlement Agreement.

In short, a Settlement Agreement is a way of compromising any claims you may have in return for a financial payment. Reasons could include:

  • Redundancy;
  • Unfair dismissal;
  • Exit package;
  • To settle a tribunal claim for unfair dismissal or discrimination;
  • As part of performance management procedure,
  • As part of a Protected Discussion;
  • Following a grievance or
  • By mutual agreement

Whatever your circumstances are, we can provide fast and thorough advice, supporting you every step of the way.

We understand that it is never easy when you are in this kind of situation and facing the end of employment – especially in the current difficult market. Therefore, we ensure that our advice will be tailored specifically to your personal set of circumstances.

We will negotiate with your employer on your behalf, to make sure that you achieve the best possible outcome financially and also in terms of the content of the Settlement Agreement. We will also explain the terms of the Settlement Agreement to you in a way that you will understand how they impact you.

And we may ask your employer to include any additional provisions in order to protect your position at the point of termination of your employment as well as in the future.

There may be circumstances that a Settlement Agreement is not the right outcome for you and again we can advise you on alternative options.

We have over 20 years’ experience in the field and understand that choosing the right Settlement Agreement solicitor is crucial.

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.

Ben Armitage

“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.

Joanne Rowe, Finance Director, Greater Manchester Chamber

“Always able to contact, very approachable, friendly and professional”

Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment

“I believe I have been able to establish a professional working relationship with everyone I have come into contact. Importantly, I sense the relationships which have been established give me the confidence that I can make contact with Davis Blank Furniss at any time and on any matter. I would also like to express my thanks to the very impressive “gatekeepers” who work in reception, not only for making me very welcome, but also for their professionalism”

Bill Pryke, CEO, Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors

“Thank you for your efficient and friendly help throughout this process. We have had it easy but your approach has been part of that”.

Robert Amsbury (Conveyancing Client)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years. I hope also that we may be able to call on you if necessary in the future.”

Valerie Fisher (Probate Client)

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”

Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland

“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”

Anon (Personal Injury client)

“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
