Employment and Discrimination Law


Our employment and discrimination law teams have experience in a wide range of dispute resolution forums in the UK and abroad. They have been involved in proceedings in the Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court, the Court of Justice for the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights.

A significant part of our employment practice is advice and representation on territorial jurisdiction issues involving British workers working outside the UK and non-British workers working in the UK. We frequently work with lawyers based in other jurisdictions to give our clients the best and most comprehensive advice. The team also includes a number of academics. Our academic members can guide our approach so the latest legal developments are always considered.

There are a number of specialist areas that we can help you with, from those with a European law dimension – such as equal pay, working time and the free movement of workers – to commercial employment and disputes involving trade unions. We represent a range of clients from corporations to individuals. We are also regularly instructed by non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and campaign organisations.

Our work in these areas is informed by our cross-disciplinary approach. Many of our lawyers have specialisms in related areas, so they can advise you on the best course of action whilst taking into account multiple areas of law. This includes EU, commercial, public, education, election, human rights and international law.
