We hope you find the website useful and informative as it has been designed to assist you if you are leaving or have left employment and have been asked to sign an agreement to cover the terms of your departure. These agreements have been used for a long time now and to some extent are almost the norm at some businesses with regards to documenting and agreeing to terms of exit for an employee.

Our expert employment solicitors act on behalf of a wide range of clients providing advice and assistance on settlement agreements across the UK. We prepare settlement agreements for employers and we also regularly advise employees on the terms of an agreement. This sometimes involves advising employees of any potential claims they may have and of their merits and value allowing the employee to take a fully advised approach to any offer.

  • 5 star review  Marie and her staff have been very helpful. Marie had assisted me previously with an employment law issues so I had no hesitation in engaging her again. She helped me through an unpleasant job related matter when I was at a low ebb and feeling unable to fight my own corner. As before Marie gave sound, straight forward advice and took over the handling of communication with my employer until the matter was resolved. When I had to take action myself Marie was always there to consult if I was worried about something. I would thoroughly recommend Consilia Legal to anyone.
