Transparency in Price and Service


The Solicitors Regulation Authority has published Transparency Rules to ensure consumers have the information they need to make an informed choice of legal services providers including understanding what the costs may be in relation to certain matters.

The principal of this firm, Henri Brandman, will always be happy to discuss what work is likely to be entailed and the potential associated costs when dealing with your employment law needs. Please feel free to contact him to explore in more detail.

Henri Brandman qualified as a solicitor in 1980, and after becoming a partner in a West End firm, opened Henri Brandman & Co. in 1989. He has worked in the area of employment law since qualification, has advised both companies and individuals and will have the conduct of the matter.

Our fees are reasonable. Henri Brandman charges less than his counterparts in large commercial firms.

Henri Brandman will inform you at an early stage as to the relevant hourly fees that will apply to your case. These figures are reviewed annually to reflect market rates.

By way of an estimate and in consideration of the relevant factors that have an impact on legal costs, our pricing for bringing or defending claims for unfair and/or wrongful dismissal claims are:-

Simple case: 2,000 - 4,000 (excluding VAT, charged at 20%).

Medium complexity case: 4,000 - 12,000 (excluding VAT, charged at 20%).

High complexity case: 12,000 - 20,000 (excluding VAT, charged at 20%).

Following an initial consultation and review of any paperwork that you have relating to your case, Henri Brandman will be able to provide you with a detailed estimate of how much your particular case is likely to cost.

There are factors that could make a case more complex including:


Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as barristers and court fees. We handle the payment of disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.

The fees associated with a barrister will depend on the specific barrister, their experience and the amount of work they need to undertake. Once again, please contact Henri Brandman to discuss the potential options and costs in this regard. Counsel's fees can vary between 500 to 20,000 per day excluding VAT, charged at 20% (depending on experience of the advocate) for attending a Tribunal Hearing (including preparation).


These stages may include:-


The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the particular details of your case and the stage at which your case is resolved. There are some matters outside of our control which may impact the time that your case takes to be resolved, such as how long it takes for your case to be listed by the court or Tribunal.

Henri Brandman will be able to give a more accurate timescale once he has more information and as the matter progresses.
