Employment and Discrimination Team

The Employment and Discrimination Law Team is an important part of Doughty Street Chambers’ civil liberties and human rights practice.  Employment rights and the right not to be subject to unlawful discrimination are of major importance both in the workplace and wider society.

Our Employment and Discrimination Law Team is dynamic, flexible and highly regarded with expertise in all areas of employment law.  Our civil liberties ethos means we will not hesitate to go the ‘extra mile’ for our clients. Team members are particularly noted for their skills in discrimination claims of all kinds, including complex and high value claims; whistleblowing; unfair dismissal and redundancy; cases involving trade unions and the rights of trade union members.  The Team works closely with other practice areas in Chambers including public law, professional discipline and personal injuries.

The continued development of our practice means that applications for Tenancy are invited from barristers of up to 5 years call with an established Employment Law practice and with a commitment to acting for claimants. Applications from barristers with a mixed practice will be considered, however Employment law cases must form a significant part of an applicant’s case load and evidence of a continued commitment to Employment law will be required.

Please direct expressions of interest to Mark Dembovsky, Chief Executive, Doughty Street Chambers (m.dembovsky@doughtystreet.co.uk).
