  • Discrimination claims
  • TUPE and business transfer disputes
  • Equal Pay claims
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Wrongful dismissal
  • Negligent references
  • Unauthorised deduction from wages
  • Restrictive covenants and confidential information (including drafting, advising on enforceability and seeking or defending injunctions)

As well as a comprehensive advocacy service, Members of the Group are happy to provide written and telephone advice, to draft and advise on contracts of employment (including advice on changing terms and conditions of employment) and to offer tactical advice on handling and avoiding employment disputes.

We Offer

  • Detailed, up-to-date knowledge of employment laws and procedures
  • A flexible and reasonable approach to fees
  • Well-equipped, comfortable facilities for conferences and discussions

We are instructed by a wide variety of clients, ranging from small, high street firms to Top 20 solicitors. We are frequently instructed by in-house lawyers within trade unions and professional associations, as well as medium-sized and multinational corporations. We have recently been appointed to the Disability Rights Commission’s litigation panel, to provide advice and representation in cases funded by the DRC.

The Group delivers regular seminars on employment law as part of the Chambers’ programme of continuing education seminars, which are approved by the Law Society for the purpose of CPD hours. Members of the Group also lecture in-house for solicitors, advice agencies and at conferences.
