Employment Tribunals

Employment Tribunal lawyers at ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan

ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan’s Employment Law Practice specialises in employment law, and we therefore represent our clients regularly in Employment Tribunal claims. 

Employment Tribunal Solicitors

Our employment lawyers represent employers and employees in the Employment Tribunal.  We offer a full employment law service, and we can therefore represent our clients all the way through an Employment Tribunal claim:

Our specialist employment lawyers prepare properly for all of these.  We can also offer our clients support in preparing for a particular part of their case if that is preferred.

Employment Tribunal Process Scotland

Employment Tribunal proceedings have become more formal and legalistic over the years, and as a result, it has become more important for employers and employees to be represented or supported by an experienced employment lawyer.  ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan’s employment law solicitors have a particular approach to Employment Tribunal proceedings which is designed to benefit our clients as much as possible.  We will always review your case carefully at the outset and advise you on the scope of your employment law claims.  We will tell you which claims we believe have reasonable grounds for success, and which are less strong.  We will tell you at an early stage if we are concerned that it may not be worth you spending your money on legal fees, as we do not believe in taking our clients’ money if we do not feel that we can add value to their claim or defence.  We will advise you on what needs to be done to progress your case properly, and we will help you do that.  We want our clients to be able to present the best possible case to the Employment Tribunal.

We are very aware that it has been difficult for some employer and employee clients to be able to afford to instruct solicitors to represent them through a lengthy employment law dispute.  This is now even more of an issue following the introduction of Employment Tribunal Service fees which Claimants must pay to raise a claim.  At ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan we believe it is very important for our clients to be able to access expert advice in a matter as important as an Employment Tribunal claim, and we, therefore, offer fee packages which are designed to allow our clients to benefit from our employment law expertise.

We can represent clients in the full range of Employment Tribunal proceedings, including claims relating to:

You can meet with one of our employment law solicitors in our offices in the West and East of Edinburgh.

We are a two partner law firm who do not specialise in Employment law. We have referred a number of our clients to Duncan McFadzean at ELP and those clients have always expressed their satisfaction at the work which ELP have done for them. We have also used ELP for any advice and guidance which we ourselves have required as a firm and have always found that advice to be accurate and tailored to our particular needs. ELP’s advice can be timely, cost effective and pragmatic. We have no hesitation in recommending them.

We found the service from ELP to be excellent and very efficient. From the first interview to talk through what we needed in the will to the actual signing was only 10 days. The whole process was explained clearly and we were encouraged to confront the very difficult and emotive issues that are involved in drawing up a will to ensure that all eventualities were covered and our wishes respected.

We used Laura and the team to sell our home in Barnton. The friendly team immediately saw the potential in the property and moved swiftly to provide a quality service culminating in a very swift satisfactory sale. Always approachable, nothing seemed to faze them. Would certainly use again and heartily recommend!

I use ELP to manage conveyancing on investment properties and some of these purchases can be complex and tedious and take time to resolve. Throughout this process the staff are approachable and friendly and the service is always efficient and effective. I continue to recommend ELP to family and friends.

This was our first time buying a property, and we were extremely nervous, but Lisbeth-Ann and the team held our hands and stepped us through each stage of the process; from advising how much to offer, to helping with a mortgage problem, to ensuring the smooth exchange of contracts and keys. We always felt like we were welcome to call at any time, and when Lisbeth-Ann took a short holiday part way through the process, her colleague Barbara picked our case up seamlessly and with no hassle. We would certainly recommend ELP’s services to anyone thinking of buying a property for the first time, and will happily use them again in the future.

I have used the services of Duncan McFadzean of ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan Solicitors regarding a dispute with my employers. I found him to be exceedingly professional in all my dealings with him. He worked hard in achieving me a settlement agreement with my employers. This was despite some difficulties with an intransigent employer who was difficult to deal with. He kept me informed about all aspects of my dispute and helped resolve things with the minimum of delay. I would have no hesitation in recommending him or ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan to anyone in need of a good solicitor.
