How can we help?

At Pearce West Employment Solicitors we specialise exclusively in Employment Law; acting for individuals in bringing employment claims against their former employer, and giving advice to employees in the following situations:

Settlement Agreements

We have vast experience in advising clients on Settlement Agreements with their employers. We offer clients a supportive and expert advisory service. Very often our advice leads to better financial terms being offered to clients by their employers.

Unfair & Constructive Dismissal

If you have been dismissed, you may be entitled to bring a case for Unfair Dismissal. We have acted for many clients in bringing their claims to an Employment Tribunal over the years, and we will handle not only the preparation of the claim but also full representation and advocacy at the Employment Tribunal hearing.

Employment Advice

If you are having a problem at work we can give you expert and confidential advice, either on the phone or in a consultation. We often find that a 'problem shared is a problem solved'. We are also able to help clients by writing letters to their Employer to try to resolve any problems, or helping to submit a written grievance.

Other Areas of Expertise

We also have extensive experience in advising clients on issues such as race, sex and disability discrimination, and all other aspects of discrimination. We also often help clients who are being threatened with, or going through, a Performance Improvement Process (PIP).

About us

Why choose Pearce West?

Jonathan West has 30 years experience helping resolve employment claims for people across the Thames Valley and South East England.

No win – no fee

In many cases when you have a valid employment claim to the Employment Tribunal for Unfair Dismissal, Constructive Dismissal or a claim for breach of contract we can act for you on a "no win – no fee" basis.

In other words, we take the case on and if you win the case we charge you a fixed % of what you get from your former employer (either at Tribunal or through a settlement). If you lose your case we do not charge you a penny – so you can have the peace of mind of not having to lose any of your money on bringing a claim!

If we are not able to offer a "no win – no fee" arrangement we can bring a claim to the Employment Tribunal on a fee-paying basis, and we are always happy to work within agreed fee-budgets which goes to ensure that you keep control on legal costs as the case progresses.
