At the termination of an employment relationship, or in the event that the employment relationship breaks down, it is quite common for employees to be offered a settlement agreement aimed at facilitating a clean break.
Benefits of Settlement Agreements
The main benefit for an employer is that the employee agrees to waive all of their legal rights and so the employer has the comfort of knowing that it is not going to be sued. The advantage for the employee is that they usually receive a tax-free termination payment.
In order to be legally binding, it is a requirement that employees receive independent legal advice as to the terms and effect of entering into the agreement. This is where our settlement agreement solicitors can help. Alternatively, we can draft tailored settlement agreements for employers who are looking for a clean break with an employee.
Nicky Cleightonhills was incredibly helpful, efficient, knowledgeable and professional throughout my lease extension negotiations. I would have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending her and Meaby&Co as the solicitors to have on your side.
Nicky Cleightonhills has been brilliant all the way through my first house purchase. She was through, professional and very fast, ensuring we hit a very tight exchange deadline. I have already recommended her services and will continue to do so.
Nicky Cleightonhills was professional, patient and above all efficient. She took the time to understand the nature of my business in relation to the lease being presented and executed my wishes appropriately. Will definitely be requesting and referring her services again.
I have been impressed with the service provided by Nicky and her team at Meaby & Co Solicitors. They have been very efficient with dealing with my query, meeting the timeliness laid out and providing a depth of expertise that allowed me to make informed decisions.

As a lawyer myself I have quite high expectations when it comes to law firms, and Meaby exceeded all of them. Great service, top quality work, and very responsive. I highly recommend them, they provide reliable and effective legal advice and work.
Very happy with the job that Nicky did in working with me to consider all angles of the documentation she was drafting. She was thorough, efficient and communicated the options clearly. I will be using Meaby's again.
I have recommended Meaby & Co to my clients for years being an estate agent and when the time came to extend my lease they were the obvious choice. Nicky Cleightonhills looked after me, and dealt with the transaction extremely professionally. I was kept informed throughout and the Freeholders deadline was met with ease. Thank you Nicky and Carly, very pleased. I will continue to recommend Meaby & Co
