Richard Oulton

Call 1995


Richard’s practice covers all the main aspects of employment law, including discrimination, unfair dismissal, wrongful and constructive dismissals, redundancy, TUPE, restrictive covenants, restraint of trade, and whistleblowing.

Although Richard acts for both claimants and respondents, his main expertise lies in handling complex and high value discrimination and whistleblowing cases for respondent employers. Richard has represented many police forces up and down the country, local authorities, and a number of corporate clients across a range of sectors, including Ladbrokes, UK Power, and Virgin.

Richard has a particular interest in disability discrimination, and is co-author of “Disability Discrimination in Employment” published by Oxford University Press.

Richard provides training to solicitors on all aspects of employment, and notably on discrimination law.
