Defending an international banking group against a £16 million discrimination claim

Defending an international banking group against a £16 million discrimination claim

Following her dismissal by our client, a individual brought a high value sex discrimination claim.

Our work included producing a defence to the claim, preparing witnesses (many of whom were very senior) for the hearing and working with the organisation’s senior management due to the value of the claim. Due to the profile of the claim, we also had to advise our client on the PR risks and brief its internal and external PR advisers.

Ultimately, we secured a favourable settlement after a long and difficult negotiation process.
