Lee is an experienced practitioner in Employment, Mediation & Alternative Dispute Resolution, Special Educational Needs and Professional Disciplinary matters. Before joining Chambers, Lee spent over 10 years as in-house counsel in several law firms in Manchester including spending a few years as head of department.

This experience has enabled Lee to have a genuine, first-hand understanding of the pressures, busy solicitors face in day to day practice. He is happy to deal directly with clients and will involve solicitors to the degree they require or prefer. It also means that he excels in making anxious clients feel at ease. Lee has a high degree of empathy with those who instruct him and will work patiently with his clients to ensure they are both comfortable and confident with his advice.

He is recognised as alumni for Manchester University, a Gray's Inn advocacy & mooting judge and trainer as well as a tutor at university level. In his spare time Lee can be found being dragged round the Peak District by his trusty Bassett hound, Billie-Jean. 


His Employment Law practice covers both claimant employee and respondent employers. He counts qualified legal practitioners (solicitors including employment law specialists, barristers and a judge) as clients who trust him to advise and represent themselves personally. Lee has acted for and against a significant number of household names claims in relation to the BBC, most global high street banks, national supermarkets, governmental departments and agencies, local authorities, accountancy firms and solicitor firms themselves as well as small boutique firms only employing a handful of people.
