As a professional, you have an obligation to report wrongdoing, risks or malpractice at work. By blowing the whistle in this way, you’re doing the right thing.

Raising a concern in the public interest can be vital in preventing harm and improving processes in both the public and private sectors. Because of this, there are laws in place to protect whistleblowers.

It’s important however to get expert legal advice when blowing the whistle on wrongdoing at work. Whether you’re reporting issues to your employer, a regulator, or both, our whistleblowing solicitors can support and protect you.

We’ve helped people at every stage of the process, from advising on how to blow the whistle through to seeking compensation for those unfairly dismissed as a result of exposing wrongdoing. Our business team also help employers to create proper policies to support everyone through the process.

If you’re thinking of becoming a whistleblower, it’s important to understand the process and how best to protect your position and future career. Our specialist solicitors can guide you through every step.

Depending on the industry you work in, there may be specific routes you need to go down in order to blow the whistle. It’s important you get this right and we can help to ensure that you do.

If you’ve already blown the whistle, you may find that your employer is treating you less favourably. Sadly this is common. If you’ve been shunned or even dismissed after blowing the whistle, we can support you through internal grievance processes or in a claim at the Employment Tribunal.

Who Can We Help?

If you’re a senior executive, director, partner or professional, we have the expertise needed to help you blow the whistle while also protecting your own reputation and career. We have specific expertise in helping professionals in the medical, legal and financial sectors.

You may find that you’re being treated badly at work after whistleblowing. Contact us if you’ve been subject to:

Changes to your role, restriction of your duties or demotion

  • Dismissal
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Benefits and bonuses being withheld
  • Hostile treatment
  • Unfair accusations of poor performance
  • Pressure to resign.

We can help you through internal grievance procedures and engage with your employer on your behalf. If the situation has become so bad that you feel you need to leave, we can help negotiate a suitable severance package.

Why Choose Our Whistleblowing Lawyers?

Our employment solicitors are recognised as industry leaders by independent legal guides, Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.

We have the skills and expertise to deal with any situation, no matter how unusual or difficult it may seem.

It doesn’t matter how big or small your employer is. We’ll help to protect you and fight to protect your best interests.

Blowing the whistle and dealing with aftermath can be stressful and difficult. We’ve worked on many whistleblowing cases, so we know exactly what to do to keep stress to a minimum and ensure a positive outcome for you.
