Kamlesh Bahl, the former vice-president of the Law Society, who won a sex and race discrimination claim against the body last summer, has switched legal advisers again.
Both the Law Society and Bahl are appealing the decision, which found for Bahl on the discrimination claims but not on the victimisation allegations. Bahl was advised throughout the tribunal by Sadiq Khan at Christian Fisher. For financial reasons, she said that she is now taking pro bono legal advice from Laurence Davis of the London Race Discrimination Unit. The switch is not her first. During the preparations for the original tribunal, she swapped Sadiq Khan at Christian Fisher for Jill Andrew at Archon (formerly Langley & Co).
