  • The advice has been excellent and the support second to none. I hope not to have to call on your services in the near future, but be assured I will recommend you to anybody in the industry who finds themselves in a similar situation going forward.

    MK, Northamptonshire.

  • On returning from a 2 week holiday I was summoned to a meeting with the Head of HR and my immediate Manager. I was simply told that after discussion they unfortunately ‘Had to Let me go!’ I was then told that they had put together a “great settlement deal” and I could take the rest of the day off read through the document contact a Solicitor, sign the settlement and get on with life. This was a new experience to me and I found Keith Webster on line and contacted his office on returning home.

    I received a prompt return call and that evening spoke to Keith Webster directly who informed me that he believed I had a very good case for Unfair Dismissal and his advice was not to accept. Within 48 hours my company was informed.

    Within 30 days I had a substantially increased Settlement offer which on consultation I accepted. I was provided with detailed explanations of various options which allowed me to make the decision I did. This was an extremely stressful situation for me however the calm, professional approach gave me the assurance I was with the right company.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Keith Webster to anyone who is unfortunate to find themself in the same situation.

    MG, London

    SG, Birmingham
