Ijeoma Omambala QC named The Lawyer’s “Barrister of the week”


Old Square Chambers is delighted to announce that Ijeoma Omambala QC has been named The Lawyer’s ‘Barrister of the week‘ following success in the judicial review claim in R (Independent Workers’ Union of Great Britain) v (1) Secretary of State for Work and Pensions (2) Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy & (3) Health and Safety Executive (Interested Party)).

Ijeoma and Cyril Adjei acted on behalf of the IWGB and were instructed by Kate Harrison and Harry Campbell of Harrison Grant solicitors.

Assistance was also provided by Professor Alan Bogg of Bristol University.

In this ground-breaking case in the fields of health and safety, EU and employment law, the Administrative Court (Mr. Justice Chamberlain) has agreed with the IWGB that the UK Government has failed to transpose into UK law important EU health and safety protections.
