A settlement agreement is a legally binding way to bring an employment relationship to an end. It’s a no-risk method of achieving a clean break on agreed terms.
Entirely voluntary, the aim is to avoid ending up at an Employment Tribunal. You may be offered one whether you are leaving on amicable terms, or have already left, or have issued a grievance or claim against your employer.
You can use a solicitor, a barrister, a trade union official or someone from an organisation like the Citizen’s Advice Bureau as long as they have been certified as competent to give the advice and have the relevant insurance. We recommend that you choose a specialist employment law solicitor.
For further advice, please contact Specialist Employment Solicitor Matthew Warren on 0117 929 2811 or email email@example.com.
We have now re-opened our branches to clients but all appointments and visits must be pre-booked to comply with government guidance.
Availability for face-to- face meetings in branches will be limited and remote contact with teams – via phone, email or video call – is preferred wherever possible. Our prime concern remains the safety of our clients and our staff.
Please note that all visitors to our offices must, by law, wear a face covering.
We cannot accept drop-in visits from clients without an appointment being made in advance. If you have documents for us, including for ID certification, please deliver them to our letterbox

We look forward to hearing from you. A list of our 11 branches is available here.
