About Farore Law

The founder of Farore Law, Suzanne McKie QC, has specialised for 25 years in the fields of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, equal pay, sexual assault and all aspects of poor treatment related to gender, and the mental illness that often arises because of the mistreatment of clients by others. 

Her team's profiles can be seen below.

Suzanne has worked in these fields as a solicitor, barrister and latterly worked part-time in the finance industry whilst continuing her practice as a specialist lawyer. All of this makes her uniquely placed to provide a rounded and knowledgeable service to clients. She is dual qualified as a solicitor and barrister. In the past she has represented many different clients, from office workers to members of royal families. Her breadth of experience is considerable. Her time working in finance provides her with a unique insight when acting for clients who are or have been based in the City.

Suzanne was privileged to give evidence about sexual harassment to the Parliamentary Women and Equalities Select Committee on 28 March 2018. 

Suzanne is regulated by the SRA.

Farore Law can use fixed fees, hourly rates and consider conditional fee arrangements in certain cases. In exceptional cases involving significant points of public importance we will consider acting on a pro bono basis. 

Where appropriate we can provide clients with access to former clients where they are willing to discuss the experience of working with Suzanne McKie.

Examples of cases Farore law has handled so far in 2018: a historical child sex abuse case, claim being lodged against the school concerned; harassment and sex discrimination suffered in the context of a domineering relationship that became personal; a sex discrimination claim arising from a perceived sexual relationship and the victimisation that followed; associative disability discrimination case arising from the caring responsibilities of the parent for a mentally ill child; sexual abuse claim arising from a Weinstein comparable case.

Farore Law can also provide bespoke training aimed at specialist legal training, the creation of better policies and practices and enhanced understanding of the impact of discrimination and harassment. 

See below details of some cases from 2017.

Farore Law co-sponsored the Fawcett Society's final report into its Review of the law of Sex Discrimination - at the Houses of Parliament on 23rd January 2018.
