Paul Mander leads the team at Penningtons Manches Cooper, which was bolstered by the recruitment of Binder Bansel and Anthea Christie from Pattinson & Brewer in 2017. Bansel is praised as 'extremely knowledgeable' and 'an exceptional discrimination lawyer'; he also handles class actions, collective labour issues and trade union law. Recent mandates for Bansel include acting for four members of the Police Federation in a claim for damages against the Metropolitan Police Service relating to its duty of care following the arrest of a terrorist subject and a subsequent civil claim against the officers, representing members of the Civil Nuclear Police Federation in a challenge to its decision to raise its retirement age, and acting for Communications Workers Union members in a test case relating to the worker status of postmasters. Christie, who is 'a force to be reckoned with', handled a judicial review application for a Police Federation representative and is acting for three Police Federation members in claims for unpaid overtime.
