Discrimination claims

"They are reliable, flexible and really care about their clients in turbulent times."

Chambers and Partners, 2019

We have a wealth of experience of discrimination law, regularly acting for employers and senior executives in relation to complex and high value discrimination, harassment and diversity matters.

We assist our clients through the process of bringing, defending and avoiding future discrimination claims. As experts in discrimination law, we apply our knowledge and experience of this dynamic area of legal practice to the specific circumstances of each client’s case. We provide strategic and pragmatic advice in order to navigate what can sometimes seem like a minefield.

Employers seek advice from us on recruitment, the introduction of employment policies and procedures to prevent discrimination claims, and equal opportunities training.  We advise on appropriately addressing disability discrimination issues such as reasonable adjustment requests and long term sickness absence. When discrimination claims arise, we ensure the strongest defence is raised in order to get the best outcome, bearing in mind the potential for adverse publicity, wasted management time and financial penalties.

Senior executives come to us to attain compensation and justice when they have been treated in a discriminatory manner, typically in relation to remuneration (including bonus and incentive awards), restructuring situations, in personal treatment such as bullying or harassment by colleagues, and selection for redundancy.

Our experience of acting for employers and senior executives means that we have genuine insight into the pressure points and tactics on both sides of the table, allowing us and our clients to remain one step ahead of the game.

Usually neither party wants to end up in contentious proceedings, but when litigation cannot be avoided, our experience, dedication and determination to go the extra mile means that we can achieve the best possible outcome for clients.

They are an outstanding firm and provide superb service; they are a genuine class act.

They are quick to turn around work, very thorough... they are also able to be commercial in their approach to the advice they give rather than simply quoting the law.
