Employment

Our team of employment barristers are renowned for their excellent work. They bring great subject knowledge and a pragmatic approach to all cases irrespective of the nature of the employment claim. We operate all across the UK, advising and representing both claimants and respondents in the full spectrum of employment claims ranging from equal pay to holiday pay and everything in between.

A willingness to go the extra mile has led to references in legal directories for being ‘skilled, accessible and likeable’, and we take great pride in our reputation for being approachable and giving our clients an efficient, highly effective service.
