Caroline Field is an experienced litigator who handles some of the most contentious and often novel cases; where necessary in the Employment Tribunal, High Court, and other dispute resolution forums. The team however aims to negotiate cases in order to preserve reputations. Dean Fuller undertakes advisory and disputes work in conjunction with related regulatory and corporate law while Ivor Adair also advises on acrimonious exits; the enforceability of post-termination covenants and potential claims under the equality act legislation and where partnership cases are entangled with issues such as alleged discrimination or harassment. Associates Shiv Raja (‘one to watch in the future‘) and Eleanor Diamond are highlighted and Ronnie Fox  continues with the firm as a consultant. Senior associate Shoshana Bacall  is also recommended.
