Whistleblowing: Everything You Need to Know!

Join us at Shepherd and Wedderburn's offices as Martin Fodder and Grahame Anderson discuss the latest know-how and cases on Whistleblowing:

  • Public interest: Chestertons, what the Court of Appeal’s judgment tells us (and what it doesn’t tell us)
  • "Who will rid me of this turbulent whistleblower?" Problems of “causation" and “reason" in whistleblowing cases.
  • Jhuti v Royal Mail Group: victimisation and dismissal by proxy: the difficulties for claimants and respondents in bringing and defending claims.

Everything you wanted to know about Employment Injunctions but were too scared to ask: An interactive session for junior solicitors

A client calls you in a fluster – Mr Bloggs has run off to a competitor with the client database and the client wants him hung, drawn and quartered forthwith. You need to act fast, but what do you do? What documents and evidence do you need? Where do you need to submit them and when? What happens next?

Sometimes the questions we really want to ask seem silly,; questions we think we ought to know the answers to. Rest assured – the Littleton Juniors are here to set you on the right track.

Chaired by leading employment Silk Gavin Mansfield QC, Littleton’s junior barristers will lead discussion on the steps to be taken to get your case ready for an Injunction hearing, from dealing with the client, collecting evidence, preparing the necessary paperwork and submitting the application. They will also provide guidance on preparing for a speedy trial. The idea is to allow junior solicitors to pose questions to a group of junior barristers and a silk, in a small group setting. A list of topics will be circulated prior to the session to allow participants to come armed with queries they might have on live or past cases.

  • recent decisions on privilege and internal investigatory material in the banking sector
  • collateral waiver
  • the scope of common interest privilege for companies, directors and shareholders
  • the current state of the law concerning privilege “in-house”
  • how developments in the use of predictive coding software in electronic disclosure are likely to affect claims to privilege.
