Direct access

Accepting "public access" or "direct public  access" instructions means you will have one person dealing with your case directly from first to last.  You can obtain guidance from the earliest stages; as well as having us represent you in mediations or in the courts and tribunals. (NB: There are strict time limits for both claimants and respondents in the courts and, even shorter time limits, at employment tribunals. So it is essential that you contact us as soon as possible.)

We can also advise on issues like redundancies, anti-discrimination policies, transfers of undertakings etc - even if they are not going to a court or tribunal - we might even help to stop them from getting there! whether by advice, negotiation or mediation.

We can supply mediators to help you resolve any issue or dispute at the earliest possible opportunity - in many cases before it becomes a formal legal dispute. Mediation can be one of the most constructive ways, as well as being an extremely cost effective way, of resolving disputes both in the  workplace and on the commercial front.

We can supply arbitrators to chair your internal disputes.

Advice and assistance

Because of changes to the Bar Council's rules companies and individuals can now instruct us directly without a solicitor. This is called "direct access"  or "direct public access".

This allows us to deal with all the legal bits of your case: from putting together the claim or the defence right through to representing you at the hearing. Extensive experience of working directly with HR professionals and with managers means we can deal with your case and deal with it in a way you will understand.

It also means that you only need to pay for one "employment lawyer" who can deal with your whole case not two!

We can provide mediation services for employment and workplace disputes as  well as for family and general commercial and civil matters.

Mediation is an effective and constructive way of resolving or dealing with problems in the workplace and at the end of employment as well as in other commercial and other disputes. It is also t preferred method of dealing with family matters from separations to property settlements.

Whether as part of our instructions in dealing with a case, or as a separate exercise, Park Chambers can also offer the facility to draft and negotiate settlements whether by way of COT3 settlements through ACAS, compromise agreements, Memoranda of Understanding, parenting plans in family matters; or otherwise.
