Settlement agreement & employment law advice from DPH Legal

David Harris - Owner of DPH Legal & senior employment lawyer

David Harris started DPH Legal 10 years ago to help employees that had been offered a settlement agreement either from a redundancy or dispute with their employer.

David noticed most clients wanted their settlement agreement signed and processed fast so they could get back on with their lives. This is the core of what DPH Legal do for their clients day in, day out in the UK, with their fees covered by the employer.

A small percentage of clients instruct DPH Legal's senior employment solicitors to negotiate their compensation and terms on their behalf. Compensation is only negotiated if DPH Legal are confident a positive outcome can be achieved.

On average DPH Legal's settlement agreement solicitors achieve an additional 25% to 50% increase on top of a client’s initial opening offer.

The majority of clients that approach the solicitors at DPH Legal are concerned that legal fees could exceed their employer’s legal fee contribution. 

For the initial settlement agreement advice and to quickly review and sign the agreement, the client pays nothing. The employer’s fee contribution will sufficiently cover the legal fees.

The settlement agreement process is designed for speed with no cost to the client and to ensure their future is not negatively impacted.

David and his team look forward to helping you move forward positively with your life.
