Expertise

Employment

Anthony’s practice ranges from the straightforward unfair dismissal case to complex TUPE, discrimination and equal pay issues. He has worked in the health and education sectors dealing particularly with disability discrimination and reasonable adjustment issues, TUPE, redundancy and age discrimination. He also specialises in cases involving TUPE transfers in the private sector and breach of contract claims involving bonuses.

Recent cases at both an Employment Tribunal and appellant level have included high value whistleblowing and equal pay claims (for both claimants and respondents). He is a leading expert on the quantification of Employment Tribunal claims. His practice extends to High Court injunctions to enforce restrictive covenants and confidentiality obligations. Anthony is licensed to undertake Public Access Work.

Anthony is known for his quick grasp of complex issues, the clarity of his advice, his thorough preparation of tribunal cases, his extensive knowledge of case law and his pro-active and tactical approach to litigation. He has been described by a wing member as ‘one of the best advocates to have appeared in the Reading Tribunal’. In another case, his cross examination was described as a “master class”.

Anthony also has considerable experience in representing employers who are faced with ‘difficult’ litigants in person.

Anthony has lectured extensively in employment law to the Industrial Law Society, the Employment Lawyers’ Association and the Industrial Society on issues ranging from TUPE to sex discrimination to unfair dismissal. He currently lectures for CLT on TUPE, Discrimination and Redundancy.
