Discrimination specialist joins Broudie Jackson Canter




Discrimination specialist joins Broudie Jackson Canter

Award-winning law firm Broudie Jackson Canter (BJC) has appointed Yara Ali-Adib, a lawyer with experience working on high-profile discrimination cases. She will join the firm’s Actions Against Public Authorities department, headed by esteemed human rights lawyer, Chris Topping.

BJC, renowned for its work on major cases including representing 20 families in the Hillsborough Inquests, has recently been awarded a Legal Aid contract to act in cases of discrimination.

In line with its core value, Make a Positive Difference, the contract will enable the firm to support those who have suffered discrimination and to continue providing Legal Aid-funded advice, ensuring that justice is accessible to all.

Yara is a civil liberties activist who strongly believes in ensuring that the Equality Act is upheld and that those who have been subjected to discrimination are able to gain justice.

Her wide-ranging experience includes working on high-profile cases involving sex and disability discrimination.

She said: “Without financial access to justice, the law is simply sentiment. For this reason, I am delighted that we have been awarded Legal Aid Agency funding which can help break down financial barriers and allow us to assist all people who have been discriminated against. The impact of discrimination is highly detrimental to my clients and to society at large. Having Legal Aid funding for these cases is a welcome progress in the fight for equality.

“Broudie Jackson Canter has an incredible reputation as a firm, with a longstanding commitment to delivering justice for all. I am thrilled to be joining this talented team and to work alongside them in representing some of society’s most vulnerable.”

In her new role, Yara will work with renowned lawyer Chris Topping, who is currently President of Liverpool Law Society.

Chris said: “Yara is an extremely talented and capable lawyer and we’re delighted to welcome her to the team. Discrimination is insidious, it entrenches inequality and enables the abuse of power. We are very pleased and proud to have been provided the means through legal aid to support people who may otherwise lack the resources to seek justice in these cases.”

It is illegal to discriminate against anyone due to ‘protected characteristics’ including age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, being married or in a civil partnership, being pregnant or on maternity leave, race including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, and sexual orientation.

There are time limits in bringing discrimination claims and it is advisable to contact a lawyer as soon as possible.

Broudie Jackson Canter is part of the award-winning Jackson Lees Group. The group provides a full-service legal solution to personal and commercial clients and has over 280 employees across six offices in the North West.
