Internal investigations and workplace grievances require careful handling and often it is necessary that they are undertaken externally. Our dedicated team of barristers specialise in the provision of these services.
Our team has experience in conducting investigations covering issues such as whistleblowing, serious sexual assault, fraud, sporting irregularity and misconduct within public authorities. We can assist with a range of matters including those concerning senior and executive level employees, collective disputes, compliance/regulatory matters and allegations of discrimination.
Each member of the team specialises in employment law more generally and so understands the competing needs of businesses’, including time pressures, internal HR compliance, external regulatory compliance, workplace harmony and potential adverse publicity.
We are proud of our dedicated and highly experienced employment law team headed up by Dominic Bayne and Andrew Sugarman.
