Having worked for nearly eight years as a solicitor in private practice before being called to the bar in 2005, Charles understands the pressures and constraints on those who instruct him and the commercial realities of litigation. He appreciates that sometimes it helps to be able to talk things through, and is happy to discuss cases informally, often before receiving formal instructions.
He joined Queen Square in November 2014, and acts for claimants and respondents of all sizes in a broad range of unfair dismissal, discrimination and TUPE related claims. He appears at tribunals and courts throughout the country and is happy to advise at mediations (both judicial and private). He advises on settlement agreements and is, where appropriate, able to accept instructions without an intermediary. Recent cases include:
“Your fine efforts are very much appreciated. I feel that you have captured the essence of a case which appears to be simple but which the Respondent sought to turn into a messy and complex matter by their continuous obfuscation.” – Mr. A.
