About Gordon Quilty
I have over ten years of experience advising employees and workers on a very broad range of employment law matters.
I regularly advise clients on a wide variety of claims such as those relating to complex discrimination law issues, unfair dismissal, redundancy, whistleblowing, TUPE, collective consultation, employment status, and breach of contract.
I also have extensive experience in handling employment tribunal litigation for clients. My litigation experience has enabled me to develop a strong understanding of the litigation process. The experience I have gained in advising on and litigating employment law matters over the years has given me a keen ability for assessing the merits of a claim.
In addition, I have experience handling settlement negotiations and I enjoy using my skills to achieve successful negotiated outcomes for clients as an alternative to pursuing claims to a Tribunal hearing.
I enjoy advising my clients on their employment law issues and I find it rewarding to work with my clients in trying to achieve the best possible resolution to these issues.

Tony"Professional and friendly support"
"I initially came across Monaco Solicitors after an internet search for employment law advice following an incident at work where I felt my employer had treated me unfairly and unprofessionally, leaving me with no choice but to resign. Their website was full of free and very general useful advice, but wanting something more specific to my case, I contacted them. For a reasonable fee, I was able to have a detailed conversation with one of their solicitors, who ran through the facts and events of my case and advised that this could be considered a case of unfair, constructive dismissal and informed me what action I could take, namely an initial “without prejudice” approach, which they would be able to support. My case was handled by Employment Solicitor, Gordon Quilty who was excellent throughout - always professional, always on top of the detail and with a friendly, calm, controlled approach and manner that helped focus on the details rather than the emotion of the case and provided reassurance when things became frustrating."
"Very happy with the service I received from Monaco, particularly with Gordon Quilty who was my solicitor. He responded to my enquiry promptly and helped explain the process to me very thoroughly. He then proceeded to implement everything so seamlessly for me, that I barely felt stressed at all. Highly recommended!"
Aaron S"A source of steady calm during a difficult time"
"I was lucky enough to be paired with Gordon Quilty after I approached Monaco Solicitors with an issue I was having with my employer and I’m so thankful that I was. Gordon’s knowledge, experience and wonderfully calming demeanour made a stressful process manageable, his patience and understanding meant never feeling out of the loop or overwhelmed. Although I hope to find myself in need of his services again, I would emphatically recommend Mr. Quilty and Monaco Solicitors to anyone seeking legal advice or representation over an employment dispute."

Actual human"Highly recommended!"
"Gordon Quilty guided me through what was an extremely trying situation with compassion. He clearly expressed his knowledge of the legalities of my situation in easily understood language and, even though he was eager to escalate matters and felt that there was a sound argument for the escalation, he provided an unbiased opinion on the potential win and loss. I can recommend Gordon to anyone having any legal employment issues. This is a real recommendation from someone who's life has been greatly improved with his help."

"I have dealt with Issy, Maria and this evening Gordon. Unfortunately, they cannot help me on this occasion but Gordon gave me incredible advice, who best to speak to and how to go about it and not to give up. Shame as they all came across as excellent people who knew what they were talking about and were very helpful. Especially Gordon who explained my situation to me, in law, but in a way I understood and the correct route to go down. He could have a career in audible books, how he sounds and explains and gives the picture of how things are. I would sincerely recommend this company to anyone needing their expertise in law."
