Broudie Jackson Canter appoints new employment and discrimination lawyer


North West law firm Broudie Jackson Canter has brought a new employment and discrimination expert on board.

James Tinston, who has more than 14 years’ experience, and has been a qualified solicitor for over 10 years, will work with the firm to bolster its offering across issues such as unfair dismissal, unfair redundancy and breaches of the Equality Act.

Having previously worked as a trade union lawyer, James plans to grow the employment law and discrimination team with the aim of achieving justice for more people across the region.

With the end of the Government’s furlough scheme fast approaching, James and the wider team are expecting an increase in the number of people requiring expert guidance as they face the prospect of changes to their employment.

James said:

“I’m really thrilled to be part of Broudie Jackson Canter and am looking forward to working with the team to help grow our presence across employment law and discrimination.

“This year has been incredibly tough on both employers and employees, but it’s essential that workers understand, and are aware of, their rights. Whether Covid-related or not, employees should be able to access quality, impartial advice so that they are confident they’re being treated fairly.

“Of course, many employers will be doing all they possibly can for their staff during these unprecedented times but, unfortunately, there is a minority that do not act appropriately or fairly. I’m passionate about giving people a real voice and helping them to tackle the bigger issues that stop them from being treated equally.

“I know that Broudie Jackson Canter has a reputation for achieving results for its clients, but I was also especially excited to join a business that is committed to making a positive difference to its clients and staff.”

As well as employment law, James and his team will work to support clients who may have experienced discrimination, in employment or in any other area of life. It is illegal to discriminate against anyone due to ‘protected characteristics’ including age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, being married or in a civil partnership, being pregnant or on maternity leave, race including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, and sexual orientation.

Chris Topping, director at Broudie Jackson Canter, said:

“James has an impressive level of experience, particularly within the field of employment law, so we’re confident that he can take this team to the next level.

“We’re passionate about providing a route to justice for people who may struggle to secure appropriate representation, and we’re excited to work with James in supporting individuals who need our support the most.”
