Chambers is delighted to welcome Louisa Simpson as a tenant following the successful completion of her Third Six.
Louisa is looking forward to working in the civil team and has a specialist focus, interest and experience in employment law and regulatory work.
During pupillage, Louisa specialised in employment law – specifically in cases involving discrimination, harassment, whistleblowing and equal pay. Louisa has worked on both contentious and non-contentious cases, crossing both the High Court and Employment Tribunals and has represented clients in preliminary and full merits hearings in a range of areas including discrimination.
Most recently, Louisa has successfully represented Respondents in an automatic unfair dismissal claim relating to a refusal to return to work during the COVID-19 pandemic and a five day disability discrimination claim. Louisa also awaits judgment for Claimants in claims of disability and race discrimination. Louisa is regularly instructed to provide advice on merit, quantum and strategy, and to draft grievance and appeal documents, pleadings, schedules of loss and without prejudice correspondence seeking to resolve matters without recourse to litigation.
Prior to joining Chambers Louisa represented a healthcare regulator in their Fitness to Practise Tribunal for claims of poor conduct, competence and health. She has since been instructed to represent registrants against the NMC and HCPC.
For further information on Louisa’s practice or to instruct her, please contact Jonathan Cue, Senior Civil Clerk or Dean Cunniff, First Junior Civil and Employment Law Clerk on 020 7353 0711 or via email: email@example.com.
