Carol took Silk in 2021 having been recognised for many years by Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500 as a leading practitioner in employment litigation and professional discipline.

Carol has a recognised expertise in discrimination law and high-value employment tribunal litigation, commercial employment matters in the High Court and regulatory work, with a particular emphasis on financial services. She specialises in extremely confidential and sensitive matters and is highly sought after by major UK and multinational corporations, banking and other financial institutions, and public authorities for large-scale discrimination and whistleblowing cases and independent internal investigations, hearings and appeals.

Over the years Carol has been described by the legal directories as “unflappable on her feet and razor sharp in cross-examination”. She is “dedicated and tenacious” and “the kind of person you want to have in your corner.” Carol “oozes gravitas and has a fantastic eye for detail” and she is “a tenacious advocate who has an excellent client manner and is able to master and understand the issues and commercial considerations quickly.” She has also been described as “exceptionally bright, strategically astute and thoroughly charming.”
