Employment Barristers


7BR’s dynamic Employment Team possesses an impressive breadth of experience in employment and discrimination law. All areas of employment related work are undertaken, both collective and individual. We advise on matters ranging from high value or complex High Court employment disputes, to the entire range of matters in the employment tribunals.

We have proven expertise in all appellate levels and first instance work alike, regularly acting for both employers and employees. Representing clients both nationally and internationally, our diverse client base ranges from individual employees and directors to large private and public sector organisations across all industry sectors. We have expertise in employment related areas such as the overlap between employment and regulatory disputes.

We contribute to Tolleys Employment Law and publish regularly in legal journals such as New Law Journal and Workplace Law and are active in ELA and the Discrimination Law Association. The team regularly provides training and seminars to solicitor clients both in chambers and at solicitors’ offices.

Members of the team are recognised in Chambers and Partners and Legal 500.
