October 4, 2021

Catherine Knowles from Exchange Chambers has been appointed as a fee-paid Employment Judge assigned to the Midlands West region (Birmingham). Catherine was appointed following an open competition run by the Judicial Appointments Commission.

This is a part time position that runs alongside her existing practice.

Catherine’s practice covers the full spectrum of employment issues, with a particular focus on claims involving allegations of discrimination and whistleblowing.

Catherine is currently on the Attorney-General’s Regional A Panel of Junior Counsel, and she has particular experience of cases involving the public sector, having been instructed on behalf of government departments and local authorities.

Catherine’s complementary personal injury practice means that she is well placed to advise in high value discrimination cases involving claims for personal injury and requiring the instruction of medical experts.
