Full Profile »

Ijeoma was called to the Bar in 1989. She specialises in all aspects of employment and discrimination law. Ijeoma’s employment law practice includes significant experience of high court litigation in relation to industrial action, restrictive covenant and executive severance cases.

Ijeoma has particular expertise in all strands of discrimination law including multi-claimant equal pay litigation. She also specialises in difficult and/or factually complex high value discrimination and whistle-blowing claims.

Ijeoma continues to develop her non employment discrimination work. In a recent education/special educational needs tribunal case, Ijeoma secured a finding of disability discrimination in respect of a local authority's treatment of a statemented child who was denied a place at the school of his choice.

Given her level of experience and expertise Ijeoma's practice now encompasses the professional discipline field. She regularly undertakes work advising and representing healthcare professionals, their training providers and their employers on employment and discrimination law matters. Recent cases have involved judicial review proceedings and applications for injunctive relief.

Ijeoma is a CEDR trained and accredited mediator and a former member of the Bar Workplace Mediation Project which was chaired by John Bowers QC. Since qualifying as a mediator Ijeoma has mediated a range of factually complex and high value employment related disputes involving both private and public sector employers.

In addition, Ijeoma has mediated and co-mediated in commercial and partnership disputes, religious, inter-church, local authority and NHS hospital trust matters.

Ijeoma continues to accept instructions to act as a representative/advocate for parties engaged in mediation.
