Barry read law at Birmingham University and qualified in 1978. Almost from the start and for the next twenty years his work covered large scale commercial litigation for companies and clients from around the world with employment law as an additional skill. He now deals with general commercial work advising small to medium size businesses on varied issues including sales, acquisitions and the like. With two other partners he founded Jarmans Solicitors in 1989 and took sole control in 1999 until 2017 when it passed into new ownership.
Having obtained a 2:1 degree in Law and distinction in Legal Practice, Emma trained at a small sole practitioner firm in Northamptonshire. This gave her a broad and varied experience and moulded her “can do” attitude to any problem presented to her.
From there, Emma moved to a Legal 500 Firm recognised by Lexcel in Kent where she spent the following 11 years as a partner working for a range of national and international clients, instructed in multi-faceted employment litigation for Plc’s, Limited companies and partnerships as well as private individuals in the Employment Tribunal and the Employment Appeal Tribunal.
Tom was admitted as a solicitor in 1998, having originally qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives in 1995.
His work extends over a broad range of cases – property disputes, commercial litigation, employment law, contentious probate, construction law, professional negligence and debt recover.
He holds the Diploma in Advanced Litigation and is a member of the Property Litigation Association, the Employment Lawyers Association and the Society of Construction Lawyers.
Tom knows that most clients, whether commercial organisations or private individuals, would prefer to resolve a dispute without resorting to litigation and without incurring major expenses. He likes to think of his work as dispute resolution; there are many ways to resolve a dispute, and court proceeding should only be used as a last resort.
Chris is a very experienced litigator with experience over a broad range of cases including personal injuries, clinical negligence, property disputes, professional negligence, contract disputes, contentious probate to name but a few.
Costs of case going all the way to tribunal vary depending on different factors. A simple case will cost in the region of £6,000-7,000 plus 20% VAT while a highly complicated case may cost as much as £21,000 plus 20% VAT. These costs are based on a senior solicitor working on the matter with the hourly rate varying from £225 plus 20% VAT to £300 plus 20% VAT.
Excellent service here. Needed a one off legal document and they were able to accommodate us the next day. We were given good advice. Highly recommend.
Chris took the time to explain several items and offered some very good advice. I will definitely use them again.
Great service from Jarmans. Sought their advice for a personal matter and everything was handled efficiently, promptly and Tom was very thorough. Would highly recommend them!
