Domonique McRae

Senior Associate
T: 02074654879

Domonique advises both businesses and individuals on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment law issues at each stage of the employment life cycle. She is valued for her concise, commercial, “no nonsense” approach, across a broad range of different sectors.

Domonique’s experience is wide-ranging. She is regularly instructed to draft employment related contracts and policies, to provide advice and support in relation to employee relations issues (such as disciplinaries and grievances) as well as strategic advice related to complex legal issues such as restructuring exercises or the impact of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) on mergers and acquisitions or tendered services.


She has also represented both Claimants and Respondents in complex claims and appeals in the Employment Tribunal, the Employment Appeal Tribunal and in the civil courts. Whether she is instructed in relation to employment or discrimination claims or in relation to contract disputes (including the enforcement of restrictive covenants), she provides clear, unwaivering advice both in relation to the legal issues and in regards to litigation strategy.

Domonique is recommended in The Legal 500 UK 2024.
