Chambers & Partners

The work we do:

Old Square has an extensive range of counsel with proven expertise in employment law and associated contract law disputes, including regulatory and FCA disputes. Our members advise and act both for and against international banks, building societies, corporate entities, accountancy firms and individuals. The changes in regime brought by the UK government have increased the duty owed by those organisations, individuals and their employees. We are well placed to advise on those extended liabilities and the vicarious liability of their employees’ actions, including any which result in criminal prosecution.

In most large organisations there are often claims of whistleblowing, which can be detrimental to both the employee and the employer, especially if covered by the press. We are recognised for our experience in handling high-profile/sensitive matters. Counsel are able to offer industry-specific expertise and guidance on the best strategic settlement in these matters.

We have a comprehensive understanding of the regulations controlling use and restrictions of the use of confidential information by financial institutions and their employees, both present and former. Members are regularly instructed to advise and also to obtain injunctive relief involving the use of that confidential information, including the restraint of trade.

Our expertise includes, but is not limited to:

  • Bonuses
  • Individual and collective employment rights
  • TUPE
  • Discrimination and victimisation (all forms)
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Senior Managers and Certification Regime
  • Whistleblowing
