Employment Disputes & Tribunals

Defending your interests

Employment dispute experts

Not all workplace disputes end up in Court or Tribunal, but when they do you need to the right team on your side.

Each year, we handle many cases for employers and attend employment tribunals across the UK. We have an outstanding reputation for handling all manner of claims from unfair dismissal to complex, multi-party TUPE or discrimination matters. We're known for our commercially aware advice, but we’re also tenacious and will take a more aggressive approach to achieve the best possible outcome for your business if that’s what is needed.

We’ll make sure you have a clear understanding of the issues, and provide a clear appraisal of the claim’s merits early on. We’ll also manage expectations and aim, wherever possible, to achieve your objectives without the need to appear at tribunal. However, if this isn’t possible, we’ll represent your company at Employment Tribunals, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) or at the High Court.

How can we help you?

Our employment tribunal lawyers regularly defend clients in:

  • Claims of unfair dismissal, including constructive dismissal
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Discrimination claims based on sex, race, maternity, disability, sexual orientation, religion and belief and age
  • Equal pay claims
  • Bonus disputes
  • Restrictive covenant and team move cases
