Few areas of law are as fast paced and dynamic as employment law. As successive governments struggle to re-calibrate the balance between employers and employees, ensuring flexibility in the market place and sensible protection for workers, accurate and up to date advice can make the difference between success and expensive litigation.
The team of specialist employment barristers at 9 Gough Square can offer considered tactical advice in all areas of employment law from a typical working, through discrimination claims, equal pay, restrictive covenants, collective rights, TUPE and whistle-blowing to name a few. Practitioners know that clients expect an efficient and cost effective service in a fast moving working environment.
With years of experience in public and private sector case work, members of the team are well placed to assist in drafting policies, participating in mediation, negotiation and, of course, advocacy before the employment tribunal and higher courts.
The team has been involved in numerous high profile discrimination claims and is regularly asked to represent Claimants and Respondents in this complex area. Many members of the team are able to draw on their experience in related areas such as personal injury and the advantages of a common law set are readily apparent in cases requiring a wide breadth of advocacy skills or court room skills.
