Profile

 

Lee qualified as a Solicitor in September 2000 and since then has specialised exclusively in employment law. Lee has extensive experience across the whole range of issues including restructuring, TUPE, dismissal and discrimination claims, restrictive covenants, trade union recognition and industrial action.  Clients have told Lee they like his straight talking approach and practical and commercial advice.  Lee undertakes his own advocacy and acts primarily for medium and large employers.

Lee regularly gives seminars and training sessions to clients. He has also been a guest speaker at numerous employment law seminars organised by bodies such as the Hull University Business School and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. He has also been asked to comment on employment law matters for regional radio and television as well as for the national newspaper The Daily Telegraph.

Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners

Lee has been ranked as a ‘leader in the field’ by leading legal directories Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 for many years. Some of the listings are below:

Legal 500 (2012): “Highly respected” Lee Whiting is an “absolute professional” with a “First class knowledge base.”

Legal 500 (2016) – “The ‘pragmatic’ team at Bridge McFarland is headed by the ‘outstanding’ Lee Whiting.

Chambers and Partners (2013): “Thorough, knowledgeable and practical Lee Whiting is “dedicated to finding an appropriate solution” says one source. He is an active employment tribunal adviser who represents organisations involved in complex employee disputes and has a specialism in the healthcare sector.”

Chambers and Partners (2015) – Partner Lee Whiting of Bridge McFarland Solicitors is a highly experienced employment lawyer. Clients say “His advice is technically excellent but pragmatic – he understands the employer’s position and gives advice accordingly.”

Lee obtained his law and postgraduate degrees in Leicester before joining a commercial law practice based in Hull in 1998. He worked his way through the ranks there to become both a Partner and Head of the Employment Department. Outside of work Lee also sits on the board of a local multi-academy trust. In his (much) younger years he was also a house music DJ but unfortunately his decks and vinyl collection now sit forlornly in the loft.
