Profile submitted by Michael Salter

Practice Areas

Maintaining a balance between representing large scale public sector employers, individual claimants, SME’s, trade unions, multinational corporations and infrastructure companies means Michael brings to each claim what one judge has described as a “characteristic sense of realism” and, what clients have noted, is a down to earth manner and commercial sensitivity. Recent instructions include acting on behalf of a police service and all named respondents where the second most senior officer in the service was a named respondent to allegations of race and disability discrimination and acting on behalf of a top-ten state funded college facing allegations of dismissal because of protected disclosures. Regularly instructed in substantial and complicated matters Michael is security vetted and undertakes claims involving matters of national security. His practice takes him across the jurisdiction, including Northern Ireland, and Jersey. He maintains an advisory practice on Guernsey employment law
