Georgina is an accomplished junior barrister with a strong background in employment and commercial law, specialising in all forms of litigation arising from the employment relationship.

She is sought out for sensitive and complex employment tribunal disputes and for business protection litigation in the High Court (including relating to restrictive covenants, confidential information and fiduciary duties, from injunction to speedy trial).

Georgina is experienced in high-level appellate litigation. She has recently appeared in two landmark employment law cases in the Supreme Court:

  • Royal Mencap Society v Tomlinson-Blake (2020, led by David Reade QC and Niran de Silva QC): Georgina acted for the successful Respondent in this landmark appeal regarding the application of National Minimum Wage legislation to sleep-in shifts. This appeal was one of The Lawyer’s Top Appeals of 2020.
  • Royal Mail Group Ltd v Efobi (2021, led by David Reade QC and David Flood, judgment pending). This will become the leading authority on the operation of the burden of proof in discrimination claims.

Beyond the employment field, Georgina advises on and appears in a diverse range of contractual matters, and in non-employment disputes under the Equality Act 2010 (in particular those relating to qualifications bodies).
