Daniel Tatton Brown
, instructed by Sarah Lamont and Jane Wallenstein of Bevan Brittan LLP, acted for the successful appellant in an important case for discrimination lawyers, CLFIS (UK) Ltd v Dr Reynolds
 EWCA Civ 439.
The Court of Appeal held (overturning the decision of the EAT in Reynolds v CILFIS (UK) Ltd  ICR 907) that when considering whether a decision taken by a sole decision maker is an act of direct discrimination, it is necessary only to consider the mental processes of that person, and not necessary to consider also the thought processes of other employees whose prior decisions may have influenced the ultimate decision maker.
