Tess Barrett

Solicitor

Tess Barrett advises employers and employees from all sectors on the full range of employment related issues offering clear and practical advice tailored to meet each client’s needs.

She developed a niche specialism in work related psychiatric injury (stress at work) claims in response to the number of enquiries she was receiving from city workers who had developed mental health conditions as a result of unreasonably excessive workloads. She also has particular expertise in pregnancy & maternity discrimination cases as well as a wealth of experience in TUPE matters providing straightforward advice to employers and employees on this intricate and complex area of law.

Tess moved to London from the South West in 2008 and joined an employment team based in Chancery Lane.  Originally called to the Bar she cross qualified as a solicitor so she could maintain a high level of involvement in clients’ cases from beginning to end.  It is this personal touch that ensures her clients receive the very highest standard of service and support at, what is often, a very difficult and stressful time for them.

Tess is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association and she regularly represents clients in the Employment Tribunal.

In her spare time Tess enjoys the theatre, visiting pop-up restaurants and travel. She loves to entertain friends and family and is an enthusiastic cook.

“I was having a very difficult time with my employers and didlaw gave me the support and legal clout that I needed in order to reach a satisfactory conclusion. I found everyone at didlaw to be very helpful, friendly and easy to talk to. In particular, I was always treated with great respect and never felt “put down”, stupid or rushed when speaking to didlaw staff about my employment matter, I could say all that I needed to say and was always listened to.”
