Employment Solicitor for employment tribunal litigation?

The principal at the firm, Ashok Kanani, is a specialist employment solicitor with over 10 years’ experience in employment tribunal litigation. We can advise and assist you in defending an employment tribunal claim.

If you receive an employment tribunal claim, you will have 28 days to file the employer’s response to the claim. It is important to file the response because otherwise the employment tribunal could make a default judgment in favour of the claimant.

Defending a tribunal claim will involve our specialist employment solicitor speaking with managers and work colleagues who are involved in the matters detailed in the claim form to obtain their witness evidence and identifying relevant documents for evidence, including, as appropriate,  emails, minutes of meetings, investigation reports, grievance and disciplinary outcomes and policy documents.  Acas are notified of the claim from the outset and discussions with the claimant can be attempted at any stage to reach a conciliated settlement, thereby avoiding the dispute being decided in a tribunal hearing.

We have extensive experience in acting for employers to defend employment tribunal claims. We can draft the response, witness statements and advise on disclosure. We can also assist with settlement discussions through Acas.
