Anna Birtwistle

Spear’s Review

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

Her empathetic outlook does not diminish in the face of multinational employers. Birtwistle has made her name in whistleblowing and misconduct cases, including acting in the case of Day v Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust [2016] and Day v Health Education England [2017].

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.
