Employment

Our employment barristers offer advice across the full range of areas in employment law.

We know that clients expect an efficient and cost effective service, in a fast moving working environment. With years’ experience in public and private sector litigation, members of our team are well placed to assist in drafting policies, participating in mediation, negotiation and, of course, advocacy before the employment tribunal and higher courts.

The team has special expertise in high profile discrimination claims and members are regularly asked to represent claimants and respondents in this complex area.

Whether you simply want a barrister to help you draft a claim or defence or advise on the prospects of success or likely compensation, you will find that coming to a barrister first allows you to control costs as well as obtain expert advice at the beginning rather than the end of the litigation. This can make all the difference to the preparation, presentation and outcome of your case.

An initial discussion will determine whether your case is suitable for direct access depending on the level of complexity and the type of assistance you will need. You may identify a barrister from our team or our clerks can assist in helping you to choose the right barrister for your needs.
