We advise on discrimination, sexual harassment, equal pay and related disability discrimination cases arising from mental illness.
An overview of our practice
Farore Law is a legal practice specialising in discrimination, sexual harassment, equal pay and disability discrimination arising from mental illness. 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. Please click here to learn more about us.
We advise from the very start to the very end of the process, including pre-action stages and all aspects of the litigation process, including the provision of advocacy services.
The firm has extensive experience in the fields of discrimination and sexual harassment. We have successfully supported and represented clients, including senior executives, both inside and outside the workplace. We have represented and acted against influential public figures, political parties, global corporations, academic institutions and charitable organisations. We are strongly placed to assist any person who has experienced discrimination, regardless of the environment in which it occurred and whether or not it was during employment.
We have undertaken 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.
Farore Law can also 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.
We do not act for clients in unfair dismissal cases unless there are elements of discrimination or harassment involved.
In May 2019, Farore Law published its own Report exploring the reasons for the slow progression of women in the legal, accountancy and medical professions.
Farore Law can use fixed fees or hourly rates. We will consider Conditional Fee Arrangements/No Win No Fee agreements in certain 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.
