UK equality and discrimination law

Equality and discrimination law legal advice in the UK

We offer you some of Europe's leading experts in discrimination law, including equal pay law. Our team of specialist discrimination lawyers and HR consultants is knowledgeable about discrimination law and diversity issues and understands the sensitivities involved.

We act for organisations in the public, private and third sectors in hundreds of discrimination cases each year, brought by employees, customers, service-users and others. This gives us a huge collective experience of the practical challenges presented by discrimination law, and a portfolio of approaches to tackle these challenges.

We are at the cutting edge of equal pay litigation, having defended thousands of equal pay claims. Our equal pay audit helps you assess your level of risk and put together an action plan to address problems.

Our HR consultants undertake robust investigations into employee grievances about discrimination, victimisation, harassment and equal pay.

We influence and gain invaluable insight into equal opportunities policy and best practice by working with numerous bodies with an interest in equality and diversity, including: government departments, the Equality and Human Rights Commission, ACAS, the CBI, the Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion, Race For Opportunity and Opportunity Now.

We also offer:

  • helpline services, to meet your need for legal advice on relatively routine discrimination law matters.
  • training to raise your employees' awareness of equality and diversity issues and reduce your risks; from bespoke diversity training tailored to your needs, to public courses and conferences.
  • free innovative tools, including an online maternity/paternity calculator and an industry first app to help you with discrimination law across various jurisdictions.
  • free e-briefings to help you keep up to date with new and forthcoming changes in discrimination law.
