The department focuses on the financial services sector and regularly handles discrimination and whistleblowing claims, restrictive covenants and bonus disputes. In a recent highlight, the 'outstanding' Alex Bearman acted for an individual in a claim for money owed under a joint share ownership scheme; other work includes Sakrouge representing a senior executive who was mistakenly paid a bonus twice and was subsequently dismissed for gross misconduct and Bearman handling negotiations for a chief information officer relating to the termination of his employment.
