About BDBF

We are employment law specialists, which gives us a detailed knowledge and understanding of the legal principles affecting your case.


In our work, we are regularly faced with magic circle law firms who are working on behalf of the world’s biggest institutions.

With such well-resourced opponents, you need credible lawyers from a well-recognised firm who understand your business. BDBF have achieved this reputation, both collectively and individually, because we have a track record of taking on (and winning against) the largest global businesses; as a result, our sound legal judgment is highly respected.

Our team is made up of several top employment lawyers and is ranked in both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners. All six of BDBF’s partners are ranked by Chambers and Partners. Legal 500 ranks Managing Partner, Gareth Brahams as a leading employment lawyer nationally and describes him as an “an extremely intelligent and capable lawyer” who “is top of his game” and “a tenacious and highly experienced negotiator.” Chambers describe Gareth as “a phenomenal lawyer” who is “excellent at handling sensitive employment matters.”

With us on your side, your opponent will take your case seriously.

Our experience, knowledge and industry insight means we will make the right judgment calls when we need to. Ultimately this gives you an edge over the other party.

This winning instinct is often the key factor in achieving the best possible outcome for our clients and why our clients recommend us to their friends and colleagues.

Nobody knows the details of your case better than you do – especially when it comes to understanding the personalities of those involved. Our lawyers highly value all the information our clients provide and will put that knowledge to the best use; often even the smallest piece of insight can make the biggest difference. We value and nurture a strong partnership with our clients as this is crucial to getting the best results. 

We take the time to get to know you and the details of your case. Each member of our team is straightforward, down-to-earth and approachable, and our advice is jargon-free and empathetic.

We chose to be employment lawyers because we want to help people and businesses in difficult situations. Our job is not simply about knowing the law – it is also about using our experience to support you through trying times. Our clients think of us as an emergency service, because they know they can trust us to take the weight off their shoulders and make a stressful situation easier to handle.
