Discrimination

We are experienced discrimination lawyers known for achieving the maximum possible compensation for individuals through negotiation and litigation. We regularly advise senior executives and other high net-worth individuals on discrimination claims where they have been treated less favourably because of a “protected characteristic” such as sex, race, disability or age (see below). We are committed to helping clients achieve fair treatment.

Individuals ordinarily have three months less one day from the date of a discriminatory act to bring a claim.

Recent experience includes:

  • Advising senior executives and issuing claims of disability discrimination (direct, indirect, discrimination arising from disability, failure to make reasonable adjustments and harassment)
  • Acting for a senior executive in the financial services sector on her sex discrimination and pregnancy-related discrimination claim; issuing Tribunal proceedings and negotiating a high value six figure settlement
  • Attending mediation meetings with clients following complaints of disability discrimination, race discrimination and pregnancy discrimination, victimisation and harassment at work and securing substantial settlements
  • Drafting Discrimination Questionnaires to protect individuals’ positions both during employment and after commencing litigation
