About us


Hello and welcome to Settlementagreement.co.uk.


Settlementagreement.co.uk was founded 2013 by Joanne O’Connell, a freelance consumer affairs journalist, who has written for national newspapers and magazines for over twenty years. After so long spent researching and writing about work and money issues, she decided to set the site up as a helpful resource for anyone who wants to learn more about settlement agreements.

There are free guides and articles on many aspects of the process, including a guide to settlement agreements, which looks at the typical terms in the agreements and what they mean. The range of guides and articles aim is to be really helpful and informative to employees that have been offered a settlement.

After working with the employment team at Blacks Solicitors LLP (including on editorial and marketing), Joanne O’Connell was impressed by the high level of service and expertise it offered. Blacks Solicitors LLP is based in Leeds and services clients nationally. While a meeting can be arranged, if necessary, many settlement agreements are able to be dealt with speedily and efficiently over the phone and email. In many cases, Blacks Solicitors LLP is able to turn matters around in the space of 24 hours.

The website offers consumers the option of a free initial call with the employment team at Blacks Solicitors LLP. Each member of the team at Blacks deals with geographical locations to ensure efficient workflows. There is no obligation for consumers to call/contact Blacks Solicitors LLP and they are of course free to contact any solicitor they wish. Joanne O’Connell remains the editor of the site.

Please feel free to read the guides and we hope you find them of use.
