About Sundeep Bhatia
I have always had a passionate interest in employment law, ever since my days as an undergraduate in the 1980s. To practice employment law in my professional life has been a dream, and one I have achieved since 2003.
I have since then represented employees and workers and have settled disputes with their employers both inside and outside of the employment tribunal and via ACAS.
I have advised clients on settlement agreements and disciplinary procedures and have helped them to make their voices heard by working with them to raise grievances, settle disputes via ACAS, and bring proceedings at the Employment Tribunal.
The subject matter of all those interventions has been vast, covering unfair dismissal, all forms of discrimination, breach of contract, wrongful dismissal, transfer of undertakings, and whistleblowing.
The quest for the promotion of equality and diversity is paramount for me and I have been heavily involved in its promotion in the legal profession since 2005.
I was on the committee of the Society of Asian Lawyers from 2005 to 2014 and was its Chair from 2008 to 2010. The Society fights for diversity within the legal professions and for the legal rights of the communities that it serves.
I was a Member of the Law Society’s Equality and Diversity committee from 2010 to 2016.
From 2010 to 2021, I represented ethnic minority solicitors on the Law Society Council, which is the ‘Parliament’ of the solicitors’ profession.
I have been a member of the Law Society’s Employment Law Committee, from 2010 to date.
I am also an Accredited mediator, trained by the world-famous Centre of Effective Dispute Resolution. That is an additional skill, alongside my training as a solicitor, which makes me adept at settling disputes at an early stage of proceedings.
