Equality Act

Disability Discrimination Act and Equality Act claims are a complex and evolving area of law. Our barristers are involved in ground-breaking cases which shape and define the law.
We understand that for many individual clients, the motivation behind their case is to expose discriminatory practices and bring about change. Equally, for employers, our barristers recognise the importance of protecting a business’ reputation and provide robust defences when necessary.
