Magdalen Chambers is delighted to announce that Martin Fodder (formerly an Associate Member of Colleton Chambers) joins chambers as an Associate Member. Martin is a barrister practising from Littleton Chambers, one of the leading London employment sets and now as an Associate of Magdalen chamber (he has a house in the South Devon) he further strengthens chambers highly regarded Employment team.
Martin is and has for many years been listed as a leading junior in employment by both Chambers and Legal 500. In Chambers 2016 it is said that ‘Sources particularly highlight his “unrivalled knowledge” of TUPE transfers…. “He has gravitas and is very tenacious…. He is an excellent technical lawyer who is very approachable.”’ In Chambers 2015 it is said of him that “He researches well and his cross-examination is devastating” in earlier editions of the directories he is described as “free from any airs and graces and extremely easy to deal with” and “an expert on TUPE matters”.
Martin acts for employers and employees in most areas of employment law. Although much of his work is for private sector clients Martin has very considerable experience of the public sector, local government, the police, NHS and educational establishments.
He is a contributor to one of the two leading works on TUPE and a co-author of the leading practitioners’ text “Whistleblowing, Law and Practice” Oxford University Press 2012, cumulative updater available on the Littleton website. He has recently completed a nationwide tour on behalf of the Employment Lawyers Association speaking on Tricky Issues on Whistleblowing.
In addition to his employment law practice Martin accepts instructions in regulatory law (he sits as a legal adviser to the General Optical Council), commercial contract work and professional liability claims.
