Direct Access Employment Law
Our Employment Team are experts in all areas of employment law and are vastly experienced in Tribunals, all the way up to the highest tiers of the Court system.
Our barristers have a reputation as being client focused, flexible and approachable. Many of the barristers in the team are members of the Employment Lawyers Association and Employment Law Association.
The team represents both employers and employees, including local authorities, trade unions, large and small private sector organisations as well as individual employees.
Instructing an employment law barrister directly can prove excellent value for money as you remove the need for a solicitor, saving on solicitor's fees. Our clerks will advise whether Public Access is the best option for you, and if not, what your best alternatives are for your budget.

- Unfair and wrongful dismissal

- Sex, race, age and disability discrimination
- Transfer of undertakings
- Remuneration, Pensions & Benefits
