- Chambers & Partners 2013
Littleton is a leading set in employment law. Ranked consistently in the top tier of the legal directories, we excel at providing the “full package” of employment specialists; renowned silks, expert and committed senior-juniors and up and coming junior-juniors. Chambers & Partners observes that "for many commentators, Littleton is the first port of call for employment advice".
We appear in the High Court, County Courts, Employment Tribunals, the Employment Appeal Tribunal, the higher appellate courts and the European Courts of Justice. In respect of the ET and EAT, we appear not only in England and Wales, but also in Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
Littleton is renowned for its expertise in the ‘crossover’ area of work between employment and commercial law, and this is what sets us apart from other chambers. We often undertake litigation (frequently injunctive proceedings) in the civil courts and we appear in the majority of landmark cases.
Key cases include:
We are active members of the Employment Law Bar Association, Employment Lawyers Association and Industrial Law Society.
We publish widely in this field. See publications for details. Several part-time Employment Tribunal Judges are also members at Littleton.
