Temple Garden Chambers act for a broad spectrum of clients, including large (FTSE-100) corporations, NHS Trusts and Health Authorities, Acas, universities, small businesses, partnerships and individuals.

All areas of advisory work and employment-related litigation are covered. Our expertise therefore ranges from contractual disputes, unfair and wrongful dismissal claims, discrimination issues, redundancy and TUPE, through to advice on restraint of trade, breach of confidence, injunctions, equal pay, bonus disputes, trade union law and other industrial relations matters. Our expertise in EU law is inevitably significant in many of these areas.

In professional disciplinary matters we are experienced in cases involving nurses (NMC), doctors (GMC), dentists (GDC), opticians (GOC), solicitors (the Law Society), barristers (the Bar Standards Board), the Metropolitan Police and other police authorities, and various sporting bodies including the Rugby Football Union and the Football Association.

Additionally we are one of the leading sets for high-profile Government employment work, much of which carries important policy implications. We have representatives on the Attorney General’s Panel of Counsel
