Employment is a significant area of practice for Chambers and our team of employment barristers are recognised in the field for their efficiency, commercially-sensitive and competitive approach. We act at all stages of employment disputes by advising, drafting pleadings and providing advocacy before Employment Tribunals, the EAT and the Higher Courts. Members also have experience acting in judicial and private mediations.

Our clients range from individual employees and directors to trade unions, and from SMEs to local authorities and national/ international corporates. Many of our members are licensed to act on a public access basis.

In addition, members of our Employment Law practice group are able to offer valuable expertise in related areas of health and safety, regulatory and commercial law.

We are happy to arrange seminars and workshops to suit our clients’ needs and we also publish a newsletter, the Employment Law Update, which is sent out by e-mail.
