Employment

Our Direct Access Barristers are experts in representing individuals and companies before the Employment Tribunal, EAT and High Court. We can represent you at interim hearings, at trials and at mediation. We can also help you formulate your claim or defence and help you make tactical decisions.
We can also advise you (based on our experience) whether or not you have a strong case which is worth pursuing. Many clients come to us via their legal expenses insurance policy. Others come to us to because they need specific advice on an exit agreement.
Our areas of expertise include:
    • Unfair dismissal claims including redundancy
    • Sex, race and disability discrimination claims
    • compromise agreements
    • termination agreements
    • Allegations of professional misconduct
    • Bonus claims
    • Injunctions
    • Whistleblowing

Of course, where we believe your case would benefit from a solicitor’s input, we are happy to point you in the right direction.

Helping a sacked employee

David Roderick provided advice and detailed grounds of claim in a constructive unfair dismissal and wrongful dismissal tribunal claim for a manager of a business franchise. The client was simultaneously engaged in a High Court civil fraud action and defending a claim for injunctive relief relating to the same business. Instructing a barrister on a public access basis in his employment proceedings enabled the client to afford to fight on all fronts.
