Two new members join our employment law team – Edward Kemp and Anirudh Mathur


We are delighted to welcome two new members to our employment law team: Edward Kemp and Anirudh Mathur.

Edward is consistently recognised as a top-tier barrister with a broad cross-disciplinary practice in employment and equality, private international, human rights and commercial law. He has particular expertise in challenging cases raising novel points of law. Described as “exceptionally talented”, he has a strong practice as both a trial and appellate lawyer having represented clients at every level of tribunal and court all the way up to ultimate victory in the Supreme Court. Edward has also appeared in a number of precedent-setting cases in the DIFC Courts in Dubai.

Anirudh has built a diverse practice across employment and discrimination, public and human rights, private and public international, and commercial law. His cases often have an international element and raise issues overlapping practice areas. He currently acts for a wide range of clients, from vulnerable individuals to commercial parties. Anirudh has represented clients at every level of tribunal and court, including in several cases before the European Court of Human Rights.

Rachel Holmes, Chief Executive of Matrix, says: “We are thrilled that Edward and Anirudh have chosen to join Matrix. They are both highly regarded, and with their respective strengths in employment law, their cross-practice and international experience, they are a great fit for Matrix and our unique multi-disciplinary offering. Their arrival further strengthens our brilliant employment law team, and Matrix as a whole, and we look forward to working with them.”
