Anna Birtwistle

Anna Birtwistle is a partner at Farrer & Co focusing on employment and partnership law. Known particularly for her tenacious nature in regards to discrimination cases, industry peers have commented on her ‘client focused’ approach to litigation.

This empathetic outlook does not diminish in the face of multinational employers, rather Birtwistle has made her name in whistleblowing and misconduct cases. For example, representing Protect (formerly Public Concern at Work) and acting in the case of Day v (1) Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust and (2) Health Education England.

Birtwistle is well versed in international resolution thanks to her position within the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Additionally, she sees her appointment as diversity officer for the ABA Section of International Law as an opportunity to fight against discriminatory practices.
