          Stress & Harassment

          Our specialist lawyers have extensive experience dealing with stress and harassment claims and providing advice to a wide range of clients, including public authorities, schools & universities and PLCs. 

          We understand that stress claims can be technically complex, document-heavy and time-consuming.  We have extensive experience of both workload and harassment type cases. We work in partnership with brokers, insurers and the insured and are sensitive to their individual concerns. 

          We stand out for our deep industry understanding and sensitive, yet commercial, approach, offering a one-stop-shop for dealing with all of the issues that arise when claims are made. 

          We offer a full range of services, from advice on risk management and drafting policies and procedures through to defending stress claims at trial, where we can point to considerable success. We provide pre-litigation advice, on- and off-line claimant profiling and research, employment law advice (including tribunal proceedings & compromise agreements), advice on disclosure, causation, identifying and instructing expert witnesses.  We work closely with both the insurer and the insured, to keep the best interests of both firmly front of mind, as well as to balance costs and challenging internal relationships. 

          A proven track-record and understanding you can trust.

          We have acted in some of the leading reported cases and we are recognised for our expertise in this area. We are one of the few firms able to maintain the same level of expert support and advice across multiple jurisdictions and associated areas of law.
