I founded the successful Employment and Discrimination department (which is ranked highly in both Legal 500 and Chambers directories). The team acts for employers and senior executives.
I am ranked as a leading individual in respect of employment law, by national directories. My practice spans the widest range of clientele from senior individuals in industry and the city to professional partnerships and corporates, as well as household name charities. My work encompasses negotiation of contractual terms, whistleblower claims, restrictive covenants, employment related shareholder/boardroom disputes, breach of contract, and dismissals and the widest range of discrimination disputes. I am always focused on a pragmatic resolution of disputes.
I sit as an international judge (Chair of the Administrative Review Committee for the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development since July 2016. This committee reviews and adjudicates upon disputes across the 56 countries in which EBRD works, applying International Administrative law).
