Employment disputes

Our team of employment lawyers have extensive experience in the insurance sector and work with insurers and their insureds dealing with the full range of employment-related disputes.

We act across a wide range of sectors to advise on all kinds of contentious – often high-value or high-profile – employment disputes. This includes:
  • Claims for wrongful and unfair dismissal, all forms of discrimination, and breach of contract
  • Breaches of restrictive covenants
  • Employee relations and trade union issues
  • Day-to-day concerns such as disciplinary issues and grievances

We identify and pursue the best way to resolve litigation depending on the priorities of the insurer and insured.

We are regularly instructed to advise and represent insurers in relation to policy coverage.

Our lawyers

Our team can provide additional services to insured businesses, such as a telephone helpline offering instant advice on issues with the potential to turn into a claim. 

Our experience

  • Defending sex discrimination claims brought by a partner in a major professional services firm against the rest of the partnership.

  • Representing a business headed by a well-known public figure in the defence of breach of contract and disability discrimination claims from an ex-employee.
  • Acting for a government agency in the defence of unfair dismissal claims. 

Our clients

We work with insured businesses ranging from SMEs to multinationals and understand the different approaches that are required depending on the scale of the business.
