Jane Mulcahy QC - Blackstone Chambers ‘ Great with clients, easy to work with, especially good on sport matters and in the employment tribunal. ’

Within: Employment

'Top-notch set' Blackstone Chambers has 'great strength in depth, from the QCs through to the juniors'. Recent case highlights include Paul Goulding QC representing Dyson Group in proceedings brought against its former chief executive, and for IBM in a High Court claim to enforce a non-compete covenant against a former senior employee. Dinah Rose QC acted for Uber in a seminal gig economy case where the Court of Appeal ruled that Uber drivers are workers, and therefore entitled to the national minimum wage and paid annual leave; the ride-sharing company will challenge the ruling in the Supreme Court. In another case concerning employment status, Jane Mulcahy QC successfully defend UK Sport against claims of unfair dismissal, discrimination, victimisation, and detriment following a protected disclosure by Jessica Varnish, a former Great Britain's women's cycling team member - the tribunal found that funded athletes are not employees or workers.
