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 the company 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 revised Settlement 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 and his entire team to anyone who is unfortunate to find themselves in the same situation.
“Keith has provided invaluable advice to guide me to obtain the best possible outcome in my situation with my employer.Keith is very knowledgeable about employment law and given his corporate background and can grasp issues more quickly than other barrister’s and this was key for me in choosing the excellent service and advice he has offered.”
“Having consulted Keith on a personal employment issue I cannot recommend him highly enough. Extremely approachable, knowledgeable and proactive. Keith resolved my issue very efficiently and favourably on my behalf.”
