Position

With a strong practice covering every area of employment law, Carol has developed particular expertise in discrimination law and high value employment tribunal litigation and commercial employment matters in the High Court, regulatory work with an emphasis on financial services and healthcare. She also has considerable experience of conducting complex internal investigations, particularly in the financial services and legal sector, and advising on and/or managing grievance and disciplinary hearings. Praised by clients for her skill in managing high complexity cases, Carol is dedicated and tenacious and formidable in conference and in court. Carol specialises in highly confidential and sensitive matters. Operating with the utmost discretion to protect the commercial reputation of her clients, she is highly sought after by major UK and multinational corporations, banking and other financial institutions, and public authorities for internal investigations and large-scale discrimination and whistleblowing cases. Clients appreciate her deft ability to instil confidence in the trickiest of cases and to grasp the detail of the case without losing sight of the bigger picture. Appearing in the High Court and the Employment Tribunal both in interim hearings and at trial, Carol is particularly good in handling witnesses and noted for her punchy and probing cross examination. Combining thorough preparation and attention to detail with a commercial, cost-sensitive approach, Carol is extremely client friendly and extremely hardworking and she is valued by clients for her hands-on style, her practical and straightforward advice, and her gift for getting straight to the heart of the matter.
