Grace joins us as a Third Six Pupil in the Employment Team.
Grace successfully completed pupillage and became a tenant at a reputable regional set with a mixed common law practice. Since gaining tenancy, whilst her practice had predominantly been in other areas of law, she has still retained her commitment to Employment. Before joining Chambers, as a tenant she built up a busy practice regularly appearing before Circuit Judges and Recorders, frequently on complex cases. She appeared on multi day cases often dealing with complex factual backgrounds.
Since joining 3PB Grace has advised both Claimants and Respondents on various employment disputes including 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 court on matters concerning unfair dismissal, breach of contract and discrimination and receives instructions to conduct tribunals on matters including unfair dismissal, sexual harassment and disability discrimination.
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.
