Employment & Equality

Marina has many years’ experience litigating employment disputes, mainly representing government departments and public bodies including the NHS. She has developed special expertise in discrimination, bullying and harassment and whistleblowing cases.

In some of her cases there is a background of professional failure, where health visitors, midwives or social workers, have been dismissed following high profile incidents involving the death of a child. Marina has also been instructed in cases involving judicial office-holders who have been disciplined on grounds of misconduct or removed from office. In R (on the application of Forrest) v Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice, for example the Court confirmed the removal of a sitting Coroner.

Marina is currently focusing her employment work on workplace mediation and undertaking investigations – into any form of suspected misconduct, harassment or discrimination. She also offers training in mediation to corporate and public bodies which are developing their own in-house skills in this area.

Marina served between 2021 and 2023 as Chair of Chambers’ Equality and Diversity Committee and previously served on the Bar Council Equality and Diversity Committee and on the Bar Disciplinary Tribunal.
