Practice Areas

Chris operates at the forefront of employment and equality law. In the last year alone he has acted at every level including the Supreme Court and one of the last references to the CJEU.

He is described by courts and clients alike as 'a tour de force' with an 'encyclopedic knowledge of employment law.' Clients vary from FTSE 100 companies, the Church of England and universities to directors, doctors and victims of trafficking. Chris is known for his sensitive client-handling skills which have proved invaluable in a number of high-profile sexual harassment claims including actions against Oxfam and Weinstein. He is also regarded as a foremost expert in whistle-blowing (having acted in Osipov, Kilraine, Bamieh and Gilham) and worker status claims.

In the last year Chris has acted in litigation which generates national and international scrutiny including Casimatjana Costa v League against Cruel Sports (the first successful claim of discrimination on the grounds of veganism) and Gue and Zulu v MoD (a successful complaint of racial harassment in the army which led to a wide-ranging review).

Chris' ground-breaking appellate work has led to a total of 35 appearances in the IRLR on matters ranging from shared parental leave rights, territoriality and covert recordings to caste discrimination and employment protection for the Windrush Generation. As such he is an all-time top 50 advocate for IRLR appearances, recognised for appearing in cases "at the frontier of discrimination law."

Chris serves as Panel Counsel for both the Government Legal Department and the EHRC.
