JFA Legal Chartered Legal ExecutivesJFA Legal is a firm of Chartered Legal Executives with more than 15 years of experience.

What is a Chartered Legal Executive?

Legal Executives have existed for a long time but have only recently obtained chartered status. Chartered Legal Executives have always been qualified and regulated lawyers, however, this new status means that you can now be further assured of receiving quality advice from an experienced professional.

The main difference between a Chartered Legal Executive and a solicitor is the training. The training a Chartered Legal Executive undergoes is far more focused on the area of law they will specialise in, meaning that they often have a higher level of expertise and practical experience within these specialised areas.

Chartered Legal Executives are fully qualified and regulated lawyers who can provide guidance direct to clients. This is what sets Chartered Legal Executives apart – we can you give fast, direct, expert advice without the large fees that come with a firm of solicitors.

Employment LawEmployment disputes form an extremely complex area of law that requires a great deal of experience and expertise. JFA Legal has over 15 years experience in handling employment disputes. We can assist in bringing all types of employment case, from straightforward cases such as a claim for unpaid holiday pay, to complex discrimination or redundancy cases.

What is an employment dispute?

Workplace disputes can arise at any time and when they do, it is important to deal with them quickly. At JFA Legal we recommend that employees contact us as soon as any concern or problem arises so that we can advise you of the best course of action to try and prevent the dispute escalating.

Avoiding any dispute in the first place is the best solution, however, sometimes this is simply not possible and legal action is inevitable.

In some cases we can offer a 'no win – no fee' arrangement so that if we don't win your case, we won't charge you a fee.
