3PB’s employment law group offers expert advisory and advocacy services to private and public sector employers and individuals, as well as service providers and businesses across all areas of employment law including unfair dismissal, discrimination, equal pay, industrial disputes, executive contracts, wrongful dismissals, restrictive covenants, whistleblowing, TUPE, injunctions, pensions disputes and disciplinary proceedings.

Practising out of each of Chambers’ six UK locations, our team offers the highest standards of legal, practical and tactical advice on both contentious and non-contentious matters. Our barristers routinely provide advocacy services in Employment Tribunals, the High Court and County Courts, as well as in appellate jurisdictions of all levels.

Our services are also available to in-house legal advisers, HR Directors and others by direct professional access services and by public access.

Our hallmark is the knowledgeable, expert but pragmatic approach that we take to employment law issues, while building friendly, long term relationships with our clients. We work with HR, legal and professional teams to create cost-effective solutions to their employment matters, in a fast changing legal environment.

The team is headed by James Dawson, a part time employment judge and former senior lecturer in law, with Charlotte Hadfield and Oliver Isaacs as deputy heads.

The Legal 500 UK Bar directory says: "The employment team at 3PB has experience in unfair dismissal claims, discrimination cases, whistleblowing and harassment matters, among other areas."

Chambers & Partners 2018 directory says: "3PB's impressive employment law practice offers advice and advocacy across the full spectrum of employment law issues. The chambers' expansive bench is composed of barristers of varying seniority, who have a combined breadth of sector expertise spanning local authorities and NHS bodies, as well as transport and technology companies. Recent work includes successfully representing the respondent in David Fraser v Babcock Airports, a case involving claims of unfair dismissal and disability discrimination following unlawful treatment.
