But, you don’t need to go it alone. Unfortunately, a solicitor cannot represent you in internal company procedures, however you may find it helpful to book a short telephone consultation with Tom for peace-of-mind before you attend.

We would also advise you to check if you have LEI (Legal Expense Insurance) available via a home or vehicle policy which can be used to fund your case.
