Discrimination law can be very complicated. At McGrade & Co, we do our best to explain it in clear and simple terms. As we specialise exclusively in employment law issues, all our solicitors have considerable experience of dealing with all areas of discrimination law.

This includes discrimination claims based on age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation. We will listen very carefully to what you have to tell us about your case and make sure we take the course of action that is best for you. This may involve trying to settle the claim by negotiation at an early stage, if this appears the best option for you. Alternatively, if it is necessary to become involved in employment tribunal proceedings, we will use our many years of experience to get the best result for you.
