We are a law firm that specialises in discrimination, sexual harassment and related employment law.
An overview of our practice
Farore Law is a law firm specialising in discrimination, sexual harassment and related employment law. We deal with matters that arise both inside and outside the workplace. The firm consists of a small, knowledgeable, and dedicated team led by Suzanne McKie QC, who has unrivaled experience in our specialist areas.
We have extensive knowledge in our specialist fields. The firm has many individual and corporate clients, and our cases often involve:
senior partners and executives;
academic institutions; and
Our team has particular experience in dealing with highly sensitive matters involving privacy, anonymity and restricted reporting. We are strongly placed to assist any person or institution who is dealing with an issue concerning discrimination or harassment, regardless of the circumstances and whether or not it relates to the workplace. We do not act for clients in standalone unfair dismissal cases, and only deal with cases of termination when discrimination is involved.
We advise from the very start to the very end of the process, including pre-action stages and all aspects of the litigation process. Unlike other law firms, this also includes the provision of advocacy services. We undertake inquiries and produced reports on behalf of law firms and barristers’ chambers relating to equal pay, the progression of women, and diversity. In addition, we have completed a number of independent reviews of internal grievance investigations conducted by companies. We also deal with ICGS matters arising out of workplace complaints in the House of Commons.
Suzanne McKie QC also accepts third party instructions for advocacy services on behalf of other law firms.
Furthermore, Farore Law can provide bespoke training aimed at the creation of better policies and practices within organisations, as well as enhancing attendees’ understanding of the impact of discrimination and harassment.

Pro bono clients
Farore Law can use fixed fees or hourly rates. We will consider Conditional Fee Agreements or ‘No Win No Fee’ arrangements in exceptional cases.
In cases involving significant points of public importance and where there is an obvious difference in financial status between the parties we will consider acting on a pro bono basis.
