Our specialist employment team provides expert advice and representation across the spectrum of this constantly changing field of law.
The ever-evolving field of employment law requires specialist, adaptable and approachable barristers, and we pride ourselves on meeting these requirements in a way which is refreshingly responsive and pragmatic. Our members are all ICT-literate and several have backgrounds in business before coming to the law.

By working as a team and in close communication with our other specialist teams, the 12 employment barristers at Park Square Barristers ensure that cases run smoothly and continuously, and can offer a range of expert opinions when required. Our cross-team working is ideal whenever a multi-disciplinary approach is needed, such as with aspects of criminal or regulatory & disciplinary law.
The barristers in this specialist team regularly appear before employment tribunals throughout England & Wales and at the Employment Appeal Tribunal in London. They also appear in the County or High Court on matters such as restraint of trade or breach of contract.
Our employment barristers provide advisory and advocacy services for claimants (single and group claims) and respondents across all forms of discrimination (including age, sex, race and disability); claims concerning dismissal (whether wrongful, unfair or constructive); redundancy; TUPE; equal pay; wages; Working Time Regulations and contractual claims. We also offer a mediation service. Link to page
