How Much Is Legal Advice on a Settlement Agreement?

Settlement Agreement Cost

Understanding the cost of getting advice on your settlement agreement is crucial, and that’s why we’re happy to be transparent about our prices. At Mason Bullock Solicitor, we demystify the process, ensuring you’re fully informed every step of the way.

Free Initial Consultation: Your First Step to Clarity

Upon receiving a settlement agreement, it’s essential to seek expert advice. Start with our complimentary initial consultation, where for up to 30 minutes, you can:

  • Share your circumstances and receive tailored advice on your next steps.
  • Evaluate the fairness of your settlement offer.
  • Discover how our dedicated solicitors can champion your best interests.

This no-obligation conversation is designed to give you a clear understanding of your position and how we can assist, all at no cost to you.

Transparent Fee Structure for Comprehensive Settlement Advice: £500 + VAT

For a standard fee of £500 (+ VAT, charged at 20%), we provide:

  • In-depth analysis of your settlement agreement’s terms and implications.
  • Expert evaluation of the offer’s fairness and negotiation potential.
  • Insight into tax considerations to maximise your settlement’s efficiency.

We’re here to address any queries, ensuring you’re fully informed and confident in your decisions.

Usually, your employer pays our costs in full

It’s common for settlement agreements to include a clause for employer contributions towards your legal fees. This often covers our standard fee, making our expert advice effectively cost-free to you. Should there be a shortfall, we’ll guide you on negotiating an increase with your employer to potentially offset additional costs.

Tailored Negotiation Strategies

Whether negotiating directly or through us, our goal is to secure the best possible outcome for you. Our approach varies based on your unique situation:

  • Direct Negotiations: With our behind-the-scenes guidance, you can negotiate effectively while maintaining a positive employer relationship, without additional fees.
  • Solicitor-Led Negotiations: For more complex scenarios, our solicitors are ready to take the lead. We’ll discuss any potential fee adjustments upfront, ensuring transparency.

Our expertise isn’t limited to financial negotiations. Whether it’s securing a favourable reference, adjusting non-compete clauses, or negotiating termination dates, we offer tailored support at a competitive hourly rate of £300 (+ VAT, charged at 20%) ensuring your comprehensive needs are met.
