Small Business Legal Advice for Employers
Employing someone is a big investment. Their efforts can make or break your business. So you want to make sure that you’ve protected your position with that employee whether they succeed or fail. Employment legislation changes all the time, so you need to make sure you are up to date in the way you approach these issues. Our expert lawyers can help with both the drafting of new employment contracts through our business document template service and the review of existing ones.
How can LawBite’s dispute resolution lawyers help?
Our dispute resolution lawyers can provide you with expert guidance and reassurance, whether you or your company are bringing or defending any legal claim notified under the relevant Pre Action Protocol or if issued in the civil Courts (‘Litigation’).
We can help with business dispute resolution and private dispute resolution advising on the relevant legal issues through to compliance with the relevant Pre-Action Protocol and representing you in court litigation. Our expert dispute resolution team will review prospects and advise on strategies to resolve the dispute at a reasonable cost.
Our dispute lawyers comply with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) Standards and Regulations regarding requirements to notify clients of the likely cost of proceedings and funding options including Third Party Litigation funding.
Alternative Dispute Resolution (‘ADR’) methods don’t involve the civil Courts and are intended to be cheaper, faster and less formal. Our corporate dispute lawyers will always consider this option as an alternative to costly court litigation as the parties are free to tailor the process to suit their needs and reach settlement on a confidential basis whilst maintaining positive business relationships.
Mediation is a process whereby a neutral mediator is appointed by the parties’ dispute resolution lawyers to assist them to facilitate a settlement agreement. The process is entirely confidential and can resolve the dispute before either party turns to litigation. Our dispute resolution lawyers will identify and agree a suitable mediator and guide you through the process.
Early neutral evaluation (ENE) and Expert determination are other forms of ADR. The dispute resolution solicitors appoint an independent person to provide a non-binding opinion on the merits (ENE), and, in Expert Determination, an expert is appointed to determine an issue, usually of a technical nature. This is particularly useful if an expert opinion may help break the deadlock.
