Chambers and Partners 
St Philips Chambers is a go-to set for complex employment law cases in the Midlands region, including those concerning issues such as claims of dismissal, whistle-blowing and discrimination. Members act for large private employers and public sector clients such as NHS trusts and local authorities, as well as for private individuals. Recent cases handled by members include acting for the respondent in Pietzka v PricewaterhouseCoopers Legal LLP, a novel sex and part-time worker discrimination claim brought by a male accountant, and representing the company in Siauciunas v Capita PLC, a ground-breaking appeal to the EAT over whether court interpreters are employees and/or workers so as to be entitled to holiday pay, sick pay and other benefits.
“It’s very easy to deal with the clerks – they can never do enough for you, organising extracurricular activities like seminars. They always provide that little extra bit of service.” “The chambers is professional, well run and responsive. Clearly a forward-thinking set which recognises the employment law field as it is today. Senior clerk Gary Carney has taken the time to get to know me and my colleagues and is always approachable and ready to help.”
