Career

Olivia-Faith Dobbie is an employment law specialist, with extensive experience of a broad range of employment disputes, both in the civil courts and tribunals. She also has a sound appellate practice and has appeared at all levels, including two appearances in the Supreme Court as junior counsel, as well as having acted in a case which went to the European Court of Human Rights. Olivia was appointed as a part-time Employment Judge in 2020. She has a strong court presence, is a seasoned cross-examiner and is also renowned for her first-rate interpersonal skills.

Olivia has a particularly strong reputation for discrimination, holiday pay, employment status, pensions and whistleblowing. Due to her depth of knowledge of discrimination law, she also represents clients in discrimination claims in the county court in the areas of goods & services, Education and Associations.

She is also highly sought after for her experience in undertaking internal processes, including investigations, grievances, disciplinary matters and appeals. Olivia has been instructed by a wide range of clients in respect of such matters, from Oxford University, to the Labour Party, and many in between.

Olivia has developed a prominent profile as a legal commentator. She has regularly advised BBC correspondents on their reporting of employment law issues and has appeared on live BBC radio and television (including the six and ten o'clock news) commenting on matters such as Brexit, holiday pay, the gig economy and breaking judgments.
