Pregnancy or maternity related discrimination
Our employment team provide a specialist service representing women who have suffered pregnancy related discrimination, maternity related discrimination or sex discrimination.
We understand that our clients need a high level of support in what can be a challenging, and stressful period of their professional lives. We have considerable experience in achieving excellent results for our clients, many of whom have executive roles in the City of London, or FTSE 250 companies. This is one of the busiest areas of our practice, as we receive a high volume of personal recommendations and referrals from our existing clients and professional contacts.
Our Head of Employment Law, Philip Henson, recently assisted a team providing submissions to the Women and Equalities Committee’s inquiry on ensuring strong equalities legislation after Brexit.
“At a time when it was important to have someone in my corner, Philip was really great at working through the issues and coming up with practical solutions. His knowledge of Employment law was first-rate and I found his judgment and negotiation skills to both be of the highest order”. Former director of FTSE 100 company.
“I have recommended Philip to a number of my clients. They always speak very favourably of him. Philip is an expert in his field; he gives sound advice, is measured, but if necessary will take a robust position in litigation and defend and protect his client no matter what.
Philip is a rare breed of lawyer – good company and personable, as well as being skilled at what he does”. Lisa Pepper, Partner, Osbornes Solicitors LLP.
We look forward to working with you.
Philip Henson, Partner and Head of Employment Law
