Hi I am about to leave my job after many years. I am going to engage with a settlement agreement and want to employ a solicitor to do all the negotiations as I don’t have the health to deal with it. Does anyone know if lawyers do this for a flat fee or do they take a percentage of the amount. I’m under no illusions, I know it will cost but want to get a rough idea that I can expect. I am talking about negotiations rather just having the agreement checked. thank you from a very tired and broken teacher.
