In line with new guidelines from the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), requiring firms working in certain areas of the law to display pricing and service information in a clear and transparent manner, we have published the fees you can expect to pay when instructing a Solicitor in our Employment team. This includes whether or not costs are VAT applicable.
On this page, you can find information on the total estimated cost of dealing with your case; our solicitors’ hourly rates, which are graded according to their level of experience; any other additional costs or disbursements you may have to pay that are not included in your fee; how long we estimate it will take to deal with your case; and everything we will do for you as part of your fee.
Below, you will find information on the fee earners in our team, alongside information on their qualifications and particular areas of expertise. For further details, please click here to be taken to our Employment team page.
The Employment team at Attwaters Jameson Hill is headed by our highly qualified and experienced Solicitor, Monika Sargeant, who has been working in this specific area of the law for a number of years and provides expert advice to both employers and employees on both contentious and non-contentious matters. She also regularly combines forces with her colleagues on other teams, giving her the ability to provide comprehensive legal solutions to clients whose matters require input and expertise from other departments across Attwaters Jameson Hill.
She is frequently joined on more complex cases, which often require the work of several Solicitors, by Mark Stigwood, a Partner and Head of our Corporate, Company & Commercial department. Together, our lawyers ensure that employers and employees receive complete and watertight legal solutions – whatever their matter.
Monika has been working at Attwaters Jameson Hill since 2013, beginning as a Litigation Executive and rising up the ranks to become a Solicitor in 2018. Originally from Poland, she undertook her Law degree at the University of Wales, before moving to London to complete her Diploma in Legal Practice at the University of Law.
After spending eight years working for another well-respected regional law firm, Mark joined Attwaters Jameson Hill as a Partner in 2014 to head up our Corporate, Company & Commercial team, although he also has considerable previous experience in all matters relating to employment law. Having attained his Law degree from Queen Mary, University of London in 2003, he then went on to complete his Legal Practice Course before training to become a Solicitor at several significant London firms.
