Martin has many years of experience advising on employment law cases with a particular interest in discrimination matters. He has also established a detailed understanding of mental health issues in the workplace, which are becoming increasingly prominent as disability discrimination law develops.
Martin was involved with the now well-known case of Lock v British Gas and drafted the referral to the CJEU.
Throughout his career, Martin has dealt with many complex TUPE situations, including a scenario where a large construction contractor was replaced by four contractors, affecting around 300 construction workers.
In those cases where tribunal proceedings cannot be avoided or settled, Martin’s significant experience in defending cases in court helps many clients to achieve successful outcomes at their hearings.
In addition to his employment law work, he also has previous experience in advising on commercial property matters including business sales and transfers.
Martin completed his Bachelor’s Degree at Nottingham Trent University and his Graduate Diploma in Law at the University of Central Lancashire, before completing his Legal Practice Course at Liverpool John Moores. He is also a member of the Employment Lawyers Association and the Industrial Law Society.
