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.
