southampton office andrew browning Southampton Office: Fox Whitfield Employment LawyersAndrew Browning heads the Southampton Office and acts for all sizes of employers from sole traders to a university. He also acts on behalf of individuals giving him the benefit of being able to see and understand both sides of employment disputes.

The Southampton Office undertakes a large amount of Employment Tribunal litigation for employers and employees covering unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal, discrimination, TUPE, wages claims and breach of contract. We will consider no win no fee arrangements for appropriate cases.

The office is also very experienced in dealing with settlement agreements (previously called compromise agreements) for both employers and employees. For employers we can draft agreements and negotiate the terms on their behalf. For employees who are offered  compromise agreements we will give honest advice about the terms offered and work with our clients to achieve the best settlement. All employees who are offered  compromise agreements must take independent legal advice from a lawyer for it be valid and the employer will normally pay towards the cost of this advice. Wherever possible we try to work within the fees payable by the employer.

Andrew also regularly gives talks relating to employment law and is experienced in delivering training on employment law to HR professionals and managers.
