Employment

We advise and represent the Prison Governors’ Association, the Police Superintendents' Association and their members in disputes with the Secretary of State for Justice, Police and Crime Commissioners and Chief Constables.

The seven police staff associations have instructed us to act for them as participants in the Police Pensions Challenge against the Home Office. The Home Secretary has accepted that the transitional provisions in public pension schemes directly discriminate against police and others on account of their age.

At present we are instructed in judicial review proceedings arising out of the Government's reduction of the prison population in response to the Covid 19 pandemic.

Hedge funds, banks in the City and a multinational group of companies refer their executives to us for independent advice on redundancy situations, and to negotiate settlement agreements and exit packages.
