Legal Experience

Grace advises both Claimants and Respondents on various employment disputes including unfair dismissal (including constructive unfair dismissal), redundancy, failure to make reasonable adjustments, harassment, breach of contract, unlawful deduction of wages, holiday pay, commission/bonus issues and discrimination.

She has appeared in tribunals (both at preliminary and final hearings) nationally on matters concerning unfair dismissal, including constructive dismissal, breach of contract, redundancy, victimisation, harassment, disability, sex and race discrimination. She also has a busy practice drafting pleadings and providing written advice at various stages of litigation.

Before coming to the Bar, she gained extensive experience in Employment Law working for almost two years in the London offices of a prestigious employment team and a second notable law firm. She worked within small teams with partners and senior associates servicing clients including FTSE 100 companies, hedge funds and international insurance companies.

Whilst there, she assisted on complex employment tribunal claims, working closely with leading employment silks in high profile cases involving claims of discrimination, unfair and constructive dismissal and whistleblowing. She also has experience with team moves, injunctions, grievance, disciplinary procedures and judicial review.
