Samantha Cooper specialises in employment and discrimination law, having built up a busy practice of both claimant and respondent work. She also accepts work on a direct-access basis.
Cooper has appeared in the EAT, both led and as sole counsel. She undertakes work for a range of clients, across the range of sectors, having acted, variously, for international telecoms companies, NHS trusts, local authorities, schools and international airlines, and having acted against such corporations for claimants. Two recent cases of interest have included advising a multinational company as to a sex discrimination claim brought by a senior manager; including allegations against the managing director and representing a large national company as junior counsel in a complex and extensive TUPE claim involving in excess of 100 claimants. Cooper was led before both the ET and the EAT in this matter.
Having undertaken a mini-secondment in the legal department of a multinational and represented both employers and employees in internal disciplinary proceedings, as well as working closely with clients from the very outset of litigation, she has an appreciation of the broader issues that face both employers and employees throughout the employment relationship. Cooper has good insight into the commercial realities of employment law and its implications for both parties; experience that enhances her approach to and advise in employment disputes.
