When you feel that you’ve been treated unfairly on the basis of your gender, sexual orientation or age for example, you may want guidance from an expert to see whether you have recourse under the law to put the situation right. Or you may have decided that you do want to progress a discrimination claim and be looking for the right barrister to support you through the process.
