Position

Akua Reindorf specialises in employment and discrimination law. She has substantial experience in managing complex, long-running discrimination trials and is instructed in appeals to the Employment Appeal Tribunal, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. She appears for both claimants and respondents. Akua is named a ‘Leader in the Field’ in Chambers and Partners 2014 and 2015, in which she is acclaimed as ‘superb’ and is noted for her ‘gravitas’. Akua is instructed by unions and individual claimants across all sectors of employment, with a particular emphasis on protracted and hard-fought discrimination and harassment cases in which she is valued for her meticulous approach to fact-handling, her incisive cross-examination and her calm and approachable manner with clients. She has undertaken pro bono work representing migrant domestic workers who have experienced extreme physical and psychological abuse. In her respondent practice Akua frequently receives repeat instructions from commercial companies, local authorities, NHS Trusts, universities, trade unions and the British Transport Police. Respondent clients appreciate her pragmatic and responsive advice. Akua is also instructed in civil claims and mediations under the Protection from Harassment Act, having appeared for the successful respondent in one of the only two cases to reach Supreme Court level in this area of law (Hayes v Willoughby [2013] UKSC 17). In suitable cases Akua accepts direct instructions from members of the public under the Bar Council Public Access scheme.
