What Should Your Solicitor Do?

If the terms of your Settlement Agreement have been agreed in principle, you may simply want a Solicitor to sign it off. A Solicitor will need to do a lot more than that in reality. This is because it is essential that you are advised on the terms and the effect of the agreement. The Solicitor will inform you of the rights in which you are waiving upon signing this.

If this is the case and you do not want to challenge the terms of the agreement then the Solicitor will still advise you on the terms and the effect of the Settlement Agreement, there will be a discussion regarding the circumstances of your employment to ensure that it is a fair deal, and advice will be given about how much your employer should be paying you. Often these agreements are fair, and the costs of the advice will not exceed the employers’ cost contribution.
