Employment law Solicitor required

Dear Sirs,
If this post is a breach of forum rules then my apologies, it is my first post. 
I am looking for employment law Solicitor. Matter to be funded by BTE Insurer - they pay 100 pounds per h. Case reviewed by two barristers, both confirmed merits. Matter is already litigated however 2nd preliminary hearing has been vacated by consent from February 2024, so there is a time to familiarize with the case but nevertheless matter is urgent. Failure to make reasonable adjustments/automatically unfair dismissal/whistleblowing/direct discrimination and harassment. Thank you in advance.
Best Regards

    Can't the insurer give you any options? Otherwise you can use the Law Society Find A Solicitor search

    It's against the rules for anyone to tout for business on here (even via PM) - it wouldn't be against the rules for someone to recommend a business they weren't connected with/that they had a good experience with, but it's unlikely a random recommendation would be the best fit.  

    As per the above post, the 'find a solicitor' search on the law society website is an excellent resource. 

    It might sound strange, but your local citizen advice might be able to help - they might have a panel or know of local solicitors who have worked on similar cases in your area (more likely in a larger city).

  • Thank you for the guidance. A bit of a shame as it is very hard to find Solicitor within insurance limit of 100 per h and I prefer my own Solicitor selection over insurance panel. CBA might be an idea, thank you. Any recommendations more than welcomed.

    Why?
    The insurer may well have a pool of experienced Solicitors for the type of case involved and agreed schedules of rates that are within the accepted fees level.

    Then prepared to fund the difference if you consider the insurers choice of panel solicitors to be inferior.

    £100 per hour is very low. Unlikely you'll find a decent employer lawyer below the £300-£400 an hour mark, so you need to decide which is more important: funding the cost yourself, or using one of your insurer's panel.
    Googling on your question might have been both quicker and easier, if you're only after simple facts rather than opinions!
