Our employment lawyers are ready to help if you encounter unfair treatment at work. Whether you experience harassment or unequal pay, are unfairly denied a promotion or face losing your job, we'll work to achieve redress for you. We have a strong track record in employment cases, and have achieved ground-breaking awards for clients from a diverse range of professions including financial services, high-end retail, education, manufacturing and law. We have deep experience in employment litigation in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
We specialise in representing people who have faced discrimination and unfair treatment in higher education, including students and staff, both in the United States and United Kingdom. We have represented staff in claims against universities for unfair dismissal and discrimination, and we frequently represent university students who have experienced sexual harassment or sexual violence. Our founding partner was a plaintiff in the pathbreaking Title IX lawsuit Alexander v. Yale, which established for the first time that sexual harassment at a university is illegal, and we frequently bring cases in this area.
