Adam focuses on disputes in the workplace involving statutory employment law, contract law, employee competition, professional discipline and personal injury. He draws on his regular trial experience to advise on merits, quantum and litigation strategy. Adam ensures that his advice, whether in writing or in person, is clear, practical and commercial. He provides a modern, efficient service and works collaboratively with his solicitors.

Before joining chambers, Adam worked full-time at the Free Representation Unit. He advised on and appeared in a wide range of hearings in the Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal.

Before coming to the Bar, Adam read Politics, Philosophy and Economics at New College, Oxford and worked at a global management consulting firm. During his training, he was awarded a Hardwicke Entrance Award, Lord Denning Scholarship, Buchanan Prize and Hubert Greenland Scholarship by Lincoln’s Inn.

In his spare time, Adam enjoys cooking and rock climbing.


Adam acts for both employers and employees. He regularly appears in multi-week trials, involving allegations of unfair dismissal, discrimination, whistleblowing detriment/dismissal and breach of contract. He is also frequently instructed in cases involving the Agency Worker Regulations, Fixed-term Employees Regulations and TUPE. He has particular experience in healthcare, aviation and local government cases. He frequently succeeds in having Tribunal claims struck out or subject to deposit orders. He has obtained Tribunal costs orders in his clients’ favour, up to the summary assessment maximum of £20,000.

Adam is well-versed in the legal principles and calculation methods in cases involving defined-benefit pension schemes, the “grossing up” of compensation to reflect the incidence of taxation, and holiday pay. He is often instructed to prepare schedules and counter-schedules of loss in high-value claims.

Adam has acquired significant experience for his level of call in the Employment Appeal Tribunal. He represented the claimants in Maguire v London Borough of Brent and PA Finlay & Co v FinlayAdam has also represented claimants in appeals concerning the approach that Employment Tribunals should take when determining a claim under Section 15 of the Equality Act 2010 and when dealing with a “last straw” in constructive unfair dismissal cases.

Adam was led by Giles Powell in Agarwal v Cardiff University and Cardiff & Vale University Health Board in the Court of Appeal and is often led in large-scale Employment Tribunal litigation.

Adam can accept instructions on a Public Access basis where appropriate – usually when the work required is drafting or advice. He regularly drafts and advises on settlement agreements.


Adam acts for both regulators and registrants. He spent six months working for Kingsley Napley LLP, presenting cases on behalf of the Health and Care Professions Council. He appeared in a variety of final hearings, up to two weeks in length. He also appeared in preliminary hearings, interim order applications and interim order reviews. Since then, Adam has prosecuted and defended registrants at the Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service and defended registrants at the Nursing and Midwifery Council.


Adam is regularly instructed in personal injury cases, on the fast track and multi-track, for both claimants and defendants. He has extensive experience of trials on both tracks; costs and case management hearings; and interim applications. Most of his cases now involve employers’ or occupiers’ liability. Adam also has experience of the First Tier Tribunal (Criminal Injuries Compensation) in both eligibility and compensation appeals.


Adam is regularly instructed to appear in and advise on cases involving breach of contract, both within and outside of the employment setting. He drafts particulars of claim and defences; advises on merits, quantum and litigation strategy; and appears in costs and case management hearings, interim application hearings and trials.
