Alfred Weiss builds on commercial litigation, arbitration and employment practice with wide-range of instructions

October 12, 2021

Alfred Weiss from Exchange Chambers has continued to build his practice by acting on a wide-range of commercial litigation, arbitration and employment cases in recent months.

Recently concluded cases by the Leeds-based barrister include acting for a former England cricketer in a claim for rectification of a deed, acting in a high value shareholder dispute settled at trial, advising on a breach of confidentiality action which settled at mediation, securing an injunction requiring a former director to hand over an internet domain and acting in a two-day Appeal in the First Tier Property Tribunal.

Alfred’s employment practice has also continued to develop apace. Concluded cases include defending an employer facing an age discrimination claim by a former solicitor, defending HMRC in a disability discrimination claim and representing an employee immigration custody detention officer dismissed for gross misconduct.

Alfred is also instructed in a wide range of ongoing commercial litigation, arbitration and employment matters moving forward.  He is currently engaged in an international commercial arbitration with leading counsel while future court dates include a two-week High Court trial for breach of confidentiality and breach of restrictive covenants and a 5-day High Court trial for breach of contract.  Upcoming employment instructions include a 12-day tribunal defending a claim for age discrimination and victimisation and a 3-week tribunal defending a disability discrimination case.

Commenting on his recent instructions, Alfred said:

“It has been an extremely busy period and I am grateful to my instructing solicitors for so many high-quality instructions in commercial litigation, arbitration and employment work.”

Alfred also believes the Courts and Tribunals have adapted “exceptionally well” to the fast and widespread transition to remote hearings.

“This is no doubt due to the hard work of the court staff, the judiciary, and practitioners, all of whom believe in the system and want to make it work,” he added.
