Here at Banner Jones we are pleased to be able to offer you a range of options for funding and progressing your employment law case.
Where possible Banner Jones will offer you a fixed fee for dealing with your employment law claim so you know exactly what you’re paying upfront. We always fix our fee for providing initial advice to you, and during the initial advice appointment we will discuss funding options with you.
Banner Jones, like many other law firms, can help you with your employment claim on the more traditional pay as you go hourly rate basis. We ensure that we carefully record our time to ensure that you only pay for the time that we spend on your case.
Legal Expenses Insurance
Many people are unaware that they may already have insurance in place to help with the cost of pursuing an employment tribunal claim. This type of insurance is called Legal Expenses Insurance, and is sometimes referred to as Family Legal Protection. It can help with solicitor’s costs and expert’s costs, such as medical experts or barristers.
Many of our clients are surprised to find that they (and other people in their household) have the benefit of this type of insurance without even knowing that they are covered. The sorts of insurance policies that it can be attached to include:
- Household Contents Insurance
- Household Buildings Insurance
- Bank Accounts
- Vehicle or Life Insurance (thought it’s essential to check that it covers employment disputes)
The Employment Law specialists at Banner Jones have lots of experience of working for many clients under the terms of their legal expenses insurance.
No Win No Fee Agreements
Following your fixed fee initial advice appointment, if you do not have any other way of funding your employment law claim, then we may be able to offer you a No Win No Fee agreement. This would mean that you either don’t pay, or you pay a limited amount, if you don’t settle or win your claim. We can discuss how this works in your initial advice appointment.

Mr M, Sheffield
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your recent assistance with an employment matter. I would also like to give you feedback on some of my thoughts on my experience. Having found myself with an issue which was clearly very serious and a very short time scale to resolve it, I was extremely stressed and upset by the time I came to seek assistance. I had the good fortune to find your company on the internet and within a few short hours I was on the phone directly with yourself.
You were so professional and reassuring and immediately took ownership of the situation and within 24 hours you had resolved the issues to the satisfaction of all concerned. I realise that you had to spend time on the phone, late into the evening, but with the tight time scale it was necessary and I am very grateful that you would do this at such short notice.
On a personal note your human and engaging style on the phone not only helped me from a legal point of view but provided the deepest level of support during a very distressing experience and as I have said i am lucky to have found you.
