Benjamin is an employment, public and commercial law practitioner.

He acts for both Claimants and Respondents across the full spectrum of employment litigation, in the Employment Tribunals, Employment Appeal Tribunal and the High Court. His clients range from individuals, through campaign groups, to SMEs, plcs and Government Departments. He is instructed in complex and challenging cases, including interim relief, injunctions and short notice duty advocacy schemes such as ELIPS and ELAAS. His experience includes complex discrimination claims, whistleblowing litigation, misuse of confidential information and complex misconduct allegations, including with a criminal crossover element.

Benjamin’s public law practice is primarily but not exclusively for Government clients, and includes immigration, unlawful detention and human rights claims.

He also undertakes the full range of commercial and insolvency work.

His approach combines forensic and analytical rigour with the ability to step back and see the bigger picture in a case.  He is equally comfortable handling both complex document-heavy matters and cases that turn on little more than witness credibility.  He is able to give clear advice, focussed on practical, commercial solutions. He is experienced in dealing with cases involving elements of political and other reputational sensitivity.

Benjamin is a thorough and diligent advocate, committed to the successful resolution of cases and willing to go the extra mile for clients.

Benjamin was appointed to the Attorney General’s London B Panel of Junior Counsel to the Crown in September 2021, having previously been on the C Panel. He is a member of the ELA Pro Bono Committee and the ALBA Equality and Diversity Committee.

He graduated from King’s College London with a First in War Studies, obtained a Distinction on the Graduate Diploma in Law, and received a Major Scholarship from Inner Temple. Benjamin is a Deputy District Judge.
