Barrister

Rhys has developed a busy and successful employment practice, and acts for both Claimants and Respondents in employment tribunals nationally and both the EAT and High Court.

He is regularly instructed in complex and high value employment tribunal cases, often involving high value future loss calculations with complex pension losses. He is often instructed to appear in appeals on both preliminary points and final hearings.

His recent cases include:

  • A £600,000 whistleblowing case in Cardiff, over 16 days, involving both an EAT appeal on a preliminary point and raising important issues over the interpretation of legislation and the status of general practitioners
  • A £250,000 claim for discrimination with complex parallel High Court proceedings for breach of contract in failing to apply an ill health retirement scheme fairly, including substantial and complex pension loss calculations
  • Defending a high value claim for disability discrimination involving complex matters of the interpretation of the nature of a contract by the employment tribunal. Also instructed in the EAT on the same case.
  • Instructed to act for 27 equal pay claimants in a claim against their public sector employer in claims exceeding £500,000

Rhys is experienced in representing Claimants and Respondents in mediations.

Rhys accepts appropriate cases on a direct access basis, and is always pleased to talk to clients about their potential claims
