    • successfully acted for a real estate business in respect of claims of sexual harassment in circumstances where the perpetrators of the allegations had left employment and were not willing to give evidence at Tribunal; and
    • advised a sports club on the employment aspects of the sale of a number of its golf clubs including on the application of TUPE.
