Barristers with expertise in Employment

Tanfield Employment Group offers considerable strength and highest quality representation at all levels of call.  The Group fosters a team working environment, in which individual clients often use a number of different barristers from the Group.


Members of the Group have expertise in all areas of employment law, acquired from spending their time in the employment tribunals and Employment Appeal Tribunal, whilst others have a particular focus on employment related injunctions and actions in the High Court.  The Group’s leader is a commercial silk, recommended in Chambers and Partners. Some of the more junior members have particular specialisms in, among other things, discrimination, equal pay, TUPE and personal injury claims for work-related stress.  

Several members of the Group lecture and publish widely on this area of law.  They regularly act for big companies, local authorities, trade unions, institutions and smaller concerns and individuals and they offer sensible and practical advice.  

The group continues a tradition of employment law expertise.  Former Head of Chambers, RJ Harvey QC, gave his name to what is now the definitive text on the subject - Harvey on Industrial Relations and Employment Law
