Position

Ed is a senior trial and appellate lawyer specialising in employment law, discrimination law and related areas. In the space of just three years he has been involved as junior counsel in two cases in which he has represented at every level of tribunal and court all the way up to the Supreme Court. He appeared as junior counsel for the successful appellant in Verma v Barts and the London NHS Trust [2013] IRLR 567 (contractual interpretation of NHS terms) and the Supreme Court has recently granted permission to appeal in P v. The Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis [2016] IRLR 301 (immunity from suit of police misconduct panels). Ed’s industry expertise spans both the public sector (local government, police force, doctors) and the private sector, including cases for or against senior executives and financial institutions. Ed has particular expertise in all discrimination strands, whistleblowing, complex contractual interpretation points, cases with an international element or ground-breaking points at the interface between domestic and European law. Ed is regularly instructed on cross-over work, for example: discrimination in goods and services litigation, professional negligence and breach of contract claims in the County Court and in the High Court. Ed has recently acquired full rights of audience before the DIFC Courts in Dubai, he has appeared in two trials in the Court of First Instance as well as maintaining a drafting and advisory practice in respect of that jurisdiction.
