Dear Paul, A little note to say a BIG thank you for all your work on my case. Changing representation to you alleviated so much of my stress and anxiety - your support and professionalism provided the structure and clarity I needed to regain my strength, and more importantly my health in order to pursue this, and I am forever grateful for that. I wish you all the best, and hope you have a lovely Christmas when it eventually arrives (and under whatever restrictions!). Thank you

Having worked alongside Dravin for 12 months on a particularly complicated Employment Tribunal case, I have nothing but praise and gratitude for the excellent service received from Dravin Bheemah. He has continually gone above and beyond the call of duty ensuring we, as his client, were extremely well supported. His legal knowledge was astute yet pragmatic and gave us confidence in the representation we received from him. I cannot recommend Dravin highly enough and would not hesitate for a moment in re-engaging him should the need arise.

I had been recommended to Mr Haresh Sood by a member of my family and a family friend who had both used Mr Sood to help them with their workplace issues. My Union was ill equiped to help me with my particular work situation, but Mr Sood took my case on. He was incredibly empathetic and sympathetic but more importantly, helped me to resolve my work problems to my satisfaction

After full 3 days of hearings, the impression I had from Mr. Somerville’s performance, is that... my case was his. The efforts he puts in the case and the dedications were out of this world. Kind of performance that make you feel “WOW”... Mr. Somerville was calmly passionate and super skilled to take a step back and sees the case from far, which enabled him to spot holes and angles to support or defend whatever thrown at him... I would have never dreamed of a better way to put my case in front of a court. Based on my experience, I can confidently say this: If you hired Mr. Somerville, he will demolish and devastate your opponent.

As an experienced knowledgeable barrister, Robin provided excellent & efficient service, and helped to achieve the desired result. He went beyond the call of duty by offering valuable personal advice from an alternative viewpoint. Robin is indeed "a barrister with a difference". Highly recommended.
Barry Stanton - View LinkedIn Boyes Turner LLP
Robin was recommended by a colleague to deal with what was likely to be a difficult mediation, and one which was thought to have little prospect of success. It was to begin life as a workplace mediation and if that was not successful move to a civil mediation. Robin worked tirelessly throughout the day and night with both parties, helping them to resolve and move through entrenched views and positions, to reach an agreement that avoided what would have been lengthy, costly and unproductive litigation. Having reached agreement Robin stayed with the parties whilst the lawyers drafted and negotiated the precise terms. His assistance throughout this phase was invaluable and the agreement was finally documented and signed off shortly after midnight.
Craig Beresford - COO/Managing Director - View LinkedIn Waterman Group plc
Robin was extremely professional and maintained his independent input throughout the day. He also focussed in on the problems and managed both sides aspirations and came up with a very simple way to bring the deal to a conclusion. I was very pleased to have him involved in this dispute and I think he certainly helped us to agree a settlement in one day that could have run for much longer.
Deborah Nichol Head of Human Resources
I would highly recommend Amanda to any company or HR professional who requires a Barrister for Employment Tribunal proceedings. She is very direct, confident, knowledgeable, and thorough. She explained the whole process clearly and I felt very comfortable throughout the process that I was in safe hands. The case and the claimant was very challenging but Amanda handled it all fairly with professionalism and tact.
DM Direct Access Client
I am very grateful to Clerksroom and Amanda. Amanda was able to offer me legal advice within 48 hours of being instructed, and as a result I was able to resolve a very stressful legal dispute that I was involved in. Amanda listened to my concerns and explained her advice in a way that a litigant in person, like myself, could understand. I would highly recommend her.

“I have known Simon for over 10 years. He’s an absolute pleasure to work with and an incredibly talented barrister with a perfect balance of a professional yet empathetic approach to clients. I would highly recommend.”
KM Direct Access Client
Greatly appreciated the advice I received and how conscious you were of protecting me and my business in all aspects. I found this extremely helpful and useful and appreciated that you’ve not only done that but checked over new documents and links provided without hesitation. I again felt this was very useful. I would highly recommend your services.”
Margaret Kay HR Director
For anyone looking for an outstanding employment barrister then look no further than Dravin Bheemah. I have worked with many barristers in my professional life and they have been all very competent and capable. However, if you are looking for someone who has compassion and will absolutely go the extra mile, then this is the barrister for you. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a barrister who cares.
Mario Vella Employee
Robin helped bridge the gap in expectations between myself and my employer and was commercial and fair throughout. Would highly recommmend him to others in a similar situation.
MC Direct Access Client
‘At all times, Amanda gave me the utmost confidence that I was getting the best possible advice. I found her enthusiasm to be a great comfort. My questions about the rights I have under employment law and best possible strategy for my particular case and circumstances, were answered clearly, with options given and reasons why I might choose one or the other. I learnt a great deal from Amanda's advice that gives me renewed confidence on what I need to be aware of in my future relationships with employers. Also, as I am now making the transition to business owner, I am also much better prepared in terms of the duties and responsibilities I have towards my own employees. Overall, I was extremely satisfied with the service from Clerksroom. I certainly recommend Amanda unreservedly to anyone needing support and representation in employment cases.’

Dear xxxxxxxx, You had informed me that Paul was a very good barrister, seeing him in action I would say excellent. Paul is also very honourable, kind, calm and composed which gave me a lot of confidence over the course of the 6 day hearing. I do not know yet the outcome of my case – whatever happens, Paul was just brilliant, and I’ll always be truly grateful for his support. Thank you very much for kindly recommending him. Kind Regards
