I qualified as an Air Diver at HMS Vernon, Portsmouth (1978) and then as a Saturation Diver in Marseille, France (1984). Before joining Birkett Long I was a professional North Sea diver and then an employed barrister.
My specialisms include employment law and employment law related civil litigation. I have extensive experience in all aspects of employment law but increasingly specialise in contentious work and litigation using my barrister training. I regularly appear as advocate on behalf of both claimants and respondents in Employment Tribunals and also conduct County Court litigation. I have a particular interest in race, disability and sex discrimination issues as well as various forms of contractual dispute. I am a member of the Employment Lawyers Association.
I also advise on Health & Safety Law and Health & Safety prosecutions.

What our clients say
Our company was in a situation that required some legal advice. Birkett Long were very quick to outline our options and suggest the best way forward. They were very quick to send correspondence on our behalf and great at understanding the situation from our point of view. I feel we were represented well and communication was fast, reliable and accurate. Would highly recommend Birkett Long Services.
