Binder Bansel - Penningtons Manches Cooper LLP

Within: Employment: employees/unions

The 'class act team' at Penningtons Manches Cooper LLP is 'incredibly knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with'. The practice stands out for its extensive experience in industrial actions and trade union law, and is also developing a track record for representing groups of employees in precedent-setting cases. The types of claim advised on relate to discrimination, whistleblowing, reorganisations and collective redundancies, and regulatory issues, and the team also handles judicial reviews and complaints before the certification officer. Niche specialist knowledge in discrimination cases involving police officers is another notable feature of the firm. Paul Mander and Binder Bansel jointly lead the practice, while Anthea Christie is also recommended.
