McDermott Will & Emery employment partner David Dalgarno has pitched himself squarely against the Employment Tribunal.
Dissatisfied with its decision to uphold Gillian Switalski's £13.4m sexual harassment claim against his client, F&C Asset Management, Dalgarno took the case to the Employment Appeal Tribunal to have the judgment quashed. But F&C lost. Despite losing in two courts, F&C has vowed to fight on and will take the case to the Court of Appeal. It believes "the employment tribunal has misapplied the relevant legal principles". Which sounds very much like a barrister's words.
Dalgarno has instructed Monica Carss-Frisk QC of Blackstone Chambers to fight the City institution's case. She will need to up her game if F&C is to come out of this messy case unscathed.
