Tony Bertin

Head of Employment Law

Tony qualified as a solicitor in 1976 and did some of the very first Industrial Tribunal cases in the old Central London Tribunal in Ebury Bridge Road. He is an experienced Commercial lawyer and employment specialist. He is also a past chairman of what is now the Channel Chamber of Commerce and a Director of the East Kent Initiative. He has developed a particular speciality in “whistleblowing“ – see Topliss v NCP Services Ltd [2010] All ER (D) 222 which, following appeal, resulted in a payout to the Claimant of more than £240,000 and Cavendish Munro Professional Risks Management Ltd v Geduld: [2010] IRLR 38 which most legal commentators believe defined the nature of protected disclosure.

He founded Employment Relations with Penny Hays in 2001 and in June 2011 the firm enjoyed a 10th birthday celebration at the House of Commons where Secretary of State for Business Innovation and Skills was guest of honour.

Tony speaks conversational Spanish and French and enjoys music, travel and having grown up and gone to school in South East London follows the ups and downs of Charlton Athletic Football club. Connect with Tony on LinkedIn.

He is also a trustee and deputy chairman of the Kings Limb Reconstruction Trust based at Kings College Hospital.
