Birmingham Employment Tribunal awards claimants 90 days' protective awards
Up to 30 employees who lost their jobs when Birmingham solicitors Blakemores fell into administration are in line for a total of more than £180,000.
The firm, which also had branches in Coventry and Leamington and employed 250 people at its peak, went into administration last year after facing financial problems.
