Ben advises and represents claimants and respondents in matters spanning the range of statutory employment disputes. He is regularly instructed in multi-day and multi-week trials in Employment Tribunals across the country.
Ben is in demand for his meticulous preparation and incisive cross-examination. He has been instructed in various high-value, high-profile and complex trials, and is in demand not only for his ability to secure positive outcomes in difficult cases, but also for his user-friendly manner with clients.

On appeal Ben appears increasingly regularly at appellate level. Before the EAT he has appeared unled for Claimants and Respondents both in advancing and resisting appeals. He has also recently appeared, led by Betsan Criddle, before the Court of Appeal in Bath Hill Court v Coletta  EWCA Civ 1707.
