Speaker: Adam McRae-Taylor, Senior Associate, Moore Barlow
Adam specialises in advising charities and independent schools in wide ranging aspects of employment, safeguarding and education law.
Adam’s approach is to work with schools and charities to ensure that they are managing their staff and children fairly, lawfully and safely. This not only helps an organisation thrive and grow, but also prevents managers from being distracted by disputes. Where contentious issues do arise, he is experienced in employment tribunal litigation and he regularly advises on employment claims such as unfair dismissal, whistleblowing and discrimination.
He trained and qualified in employment law with a Magic Circle firm in London. Before joining the Schools & Charities Team at Moore Barlow LLP (formerly Barlow Robbins LLP), Adam spent two years working in-house for a charity which gave him an invaluable perspective on how to provide practical advice on the issues charities commonly face.
