The Employment Team in Chambers is delighted to have 15 members ranked in the Legal 500

The Employment Team continues to grow in Chambers and is 'one of, if not the best in the country'. Chambers is recognised as having 'significant strength in depth on employment and discrimination matters'.

"Its members handle the entire spectrum of contentious work in employment tribunals, civil courts, and appeal courts. Paul Gilroy KC has significant expertise in contentious and non-contentious employment law mandates; he represented the respondent in USDAW and others v Tesco Stores, a group action concerning a "fire and rehire" of employees in its distribution centres. Employment specialist Amy Smith is strong in whistle-blowing and discrimination cases - she represented the employer in Dabiri v William Hill, in which the tribunal found the claimant had attempted to bribe two witnesses in a mental health-related disability claim."

Our incredible clerks also come highly recommended:

‘The service from the clerks is always on point. Julia Lanza and Alex Jones are particularly helpful, responding to calls and emails quickly and liaising efficiently with counsel.’

‘Excellent clerking team. Julia Lanza and Alex Jones are extremely helpful, supportive, and deliver a very responsive service.’

‘Timely and efficient, Julia Lanza always does her best to accommodate and arrange availability for hearings, even at short notice.’
