Robert Spicer – Founder


Robert Spicer has been a barrister for over 40 years. He has been involved in private practice, higher education and welfare rights work. He is passionate about the denial of justice to poor people. He is a member of CND and Liberty.

His current academic research into the deficiencies of the English legal system has recently been published. This new book argues that money is the key to understanding the English legal system and that English law needs to be simplified.

He has extensive experience of dealing with cases in a wide range of employment law, health and safety law and workplace stress matters. His skills and expertise in these areas have been developed through involvement in many successful claims, over a period of 40 years. He provides professional, expert and friendly legal advice.

His aim is to maintain the highest possible standards of professionalism whilst avoiding unnecessary formality and ensuring continuing personal support.
