Our Services

Litigation & Disputes

litigationI am a leading litigation solicitor in Leicestershire. I’m based in Market Harborough but my firm, Josiah Hincks, has 5 offices throughout the County.

I help David fight Goliath. The thing that gives me kicks is getting justice for clients against bigger opposition. This is often Banks, IFAs, professionals, the NHS – the bigger they are the harder they fall!

I’m usually against lawyers from the top 50 firms which makes it even more enjoyable when I get RESULTS for my clients.

However I do act for local clients in local disputes across a wide range of contract and commercial legal disputes.

I give unequivocal, commercial, pragmatic advice rather than sit on the fence. Much of my work is done on no win no fee type arrangements.

I have have specific and specialist experience in banking and financial services litigation, including interest rate swap misselling and claims against IFAs. I have great sector experience in acting for companies involved with technology/IT, hotels, landlords, footwear companies and sports-based companies.


Compromise Settlement Agreements

settlement-agreements-bookI am an expert on Compromise/Settlement Agreements. I do several agreements every week for employees whose employment is being terminated for whatever reason.

In fact, I published an eBook on Compromise Agreements which is available to buy from Amazon or via the Kindle Book store.

In brief, a compromise or settlement agreement is a contract under which the employer agrees to pay the employee some money in return for the employee agreeing not to sue the employer.

I help employees get every last penny they can out of the Company and negotiate the settlement agreement on your behalf.

More information on Settlement Agreements can be found on my dedicated website Made Redundant
