Discrimination Barrister London

Are you looking to work with a Senior Advocate, with the same level of experience as a discrimination barrister in London? The Damian McCarthy website is the place you need to be. Damian has an incredibly high success rate in winning cases and will help you develop a strategy that will increase your overall chances of success. He is regularly hired by the biggest law firms in the UK to represent their clients, so you know he is the very best individual to contact.


Damian has worked on a variety of high profile and complex cases, including acting for Moira Stuart against the BBC and also represented international bank HBOS in a sexual harassment claim, achieving outstanding results in both cases, which went on to receive nationwide media attention. He understands more than anyone how tough it can be when choosing a good employment lawyer as there are many firms to choose from who all claim to be specialists in their field.


Damian specialises in claims made under the Equality Act 2010. These entail claims of sex discrimination, race discrimination, disability discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, pregnancy or maternity discrimination, age discrimination, discrimination on the grounds of religion or belief and discrimination on the grounds of gender reassignment.

The types of claims pursued in Employment Tribunal are direct discrimination (Equality Act 2010, s13), Indirect discrimination (Equality Act 2010, s19), Harassment (Equality Act 2010, s26) and Victimisation (Equality Act 2010, s27).

It is not safe to instruct some direct access barristers, as the regulator for barristers (The Bar Standards Board) do not regulate the barristers correctly. It has previously refused to investigate misconduct by barristers. It is partial in its approach and members of the public should be very cautious in instructing a direct access barrister.


No matter who Damian represents, he is always fully committed to each and every different case and always strives to achieve the best possible outcome for his clients. He is incredibly passionate about the work he does and strives to get people the justice they deserve. Occasionally he will also act for clients in unfair dismissal claims but usually only where these also involve claims of discrimination or whistleblowing.
