About Alex Monaco
A proponent of access to justice, I believe in publishing legal knowledge on the internet for individuals to access for free, so that people can at least be well informed about their rights, no matter how difficult those rights can be to implement sometimes.
I am passionate about helping individuals stand up to the might of the corporate machine, and am proud to have established a law firm which helps employees only.
As a Solicitor-Advocate (All Higher Courts) I am qualified to attend all courts and do the talking, in the same way that a barrister is. I have made good use of this qualification, appearing in many Employment Tribunals over the years, as well as the High Court of Justice and the Court of Appeal.
My employment law specialisms include the full range of cases from bus drivers & nurses, to executive cases involving share deals, restrictive covenants and bonus payments. Also whistleblowing and discrimination cases.
I sued the government, launching a judicial review of the compensation cap for unfair dismissal awards, due to discrimination against vulnerable employees, especially pregnant women, in favour of unscrupulous corporations; this was widely reported in the legal press. You can read about it here.
In another major case, I conducted a whistleblowing trial against a multinational conglomerate publisher, involving allegations of supplying banking data to sanctioned banks in Syria and North Korea, reported on in the Financial Times and over the pond in the Wall Street Journal, which you can read about here.
