Lord John Hendy KC

Lord Hendy KC was called to the Bar in 1972 and after establishing and running a law centre for three years and lecturing for a year, he started practice in 1977 and took silk in 1987. He is, without a doubt, best known for his work in industrial relations and employment law, having appeared in most of the UK’s leading collective labour law cases in the last 45 years.

A writer and frequent speaker on trade union rights issues, in July 2012, John was honoured to address the Durham Miners’ Gala to an audience of 80,000. He has twice addressed the Annual Conference of the Industrial Law Society and frequently spoken at their evening meetings and at meetings of the Employment Law Bar Association.
