Ben is a specialist employment barrister who routinely advises on and appears before the Tribunals and Civil Courts in matters across the spectrum of individual, collective, and commercial employment issues.
In his contentious work he regularly appears in multi-week cases and has a developing appellate practice. He has particular experience in the healthcare sector, and in matters, more generally, that involve overlapping employment and professional disciplinary/regulatory considerations. He has appeared at disciplinary and appeal stages of MHPS proceedings, and been instructed on behalf of registrants in various proceedings before regulators.
Outside of the Courts/Tribunals Ben regularly accepts instructions as an independent investigator and has undertaken instructions on behalf of major commercial enterprises, third sector clients, and SMEs. This work has spanned the range of workplace grievances, disciplinary matters, complaints by members of the public, safeguarding issues, and bespoke processes under trade union rulebooks.
