Discrimination and Equality

Discrimination and Equality

We have a wide range of expertise in all aspects regarding the legal protection from discrimination and the regulation to promote equality and diversity. Governed by the Equality Act 2010, this area of law encompasses work within a number of other legal regimes, including:

Each of these areas of law is connected to the overarching principles found in human rights law and EU law.

We represent a number of different types of clients, both claimants and defendants, in cases ranging from discrimination issues in employment tribunals and school exclusion panels, to ground-breaking cases in the Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights that develop the law in this area. We have members on the approved list of the Equality and Human Rights Commission and we regularly act for NGOs and campaign organisations.
