December 2017 – Settlement agreement results

At the end of 2017 we acted for Mr A in his settlement agreements against a large corporate. We increased his settlement package by £13,000 as a result of claims he had. We also got large commission payments and holiday payments agreed. This was a complex agreement given his benefits package which included shares. He was confident that in the New Year he could gain employment swiftly.

In this case, as a senior executive with lots of benefits, the legal fees on offer from the employer were woefully short of the time required for a complex benefits package so there was a contribution required from him of £750 plus VAT in excess of the sums paid by his employer but given the large financial benefits he received as a result of that advice he was happy to pay the fees.
