Matrix’s employment law team provides a wealth of experience across all areas of employment law, providing advice, advocacy, training and expertise for both claimants and defendants/respondents.
Matrix barristers act in cases at all levels, from first-instance proceedings in the High Court or Employment Tribunal to appeals in the Supreme Court, the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights. Our experience also extends to providing advice and representation in the Central Arbitration Committee and before regulatory and disciplinary bodies as well as mediation and arbitration. Our members, renowned for their independence and thoroughness, are increasingly in demand for internal investigations – we conduct audits, grievance and disciplinary investigations with focus and impartiality.
Our work is frequently pioneering and of far-reaching importance, and the team has the advantage of bringing together barristers at Matrix who also specialise in different areas of law that intersect with employment law. These include discrimination and equality, education and other areas of public and administrative law, human rights law, commercial law, EU law (including the free movement of workers regime), and media and data protection.
We are user-friendly and accessible, and provide a prompt and high-quality service. The practice team have a deep understanding of the employment law world, and are always willing to offer creative solutions for clients. Members are often instructed on different sides in the same litigation and we have strong procedures in place for ensuring complete confidentiality within Matrix.
We are also active in the employment law community, working with Advocate, the Employment Law Appeal Advice Scheme, and the main professional organisations. Our members are frequently invited to speak at conferences, training events and live broadcasts, and we write regularly on employment law issues.
Matrix has a team of barristers with extensive experience in applying for injunctions and responding to such application in commercial and employment cases, including breach of contract, restrictive covenants, team moves, garden leave, confidential information, ‘springboard’ injunctions, search orders, and freezing orders. All our staff are able to assist you with these enquiries, but if you require urgent assistance at any time, you can call out dedicated injunctions hotline: +44(0)20 7611 7977.
This snapshot of some of our most recent cases demonstrates that our members are in demand for the most high-profile, high value, and legally challenging employment cases in the UK, often acting for different sides in the same dispute. Our directory rankings and the sheer number of reported cases earned by members of the team testify to the stature of the Matrix employment team.
