Paul Singh

Associate Solicitor
Background

I have been practicing employment law for over 15 years. I started out at a legal aid firm in Sheffield, helping vulnerable and financially disadvantaged clients, which I found to be very rewarding. I moved to a firm in Leeds doing LEI work and gaining some respondent experience. I felt that it was important to allow me to be a well-rounded employment lawyer. From then, I worked in-house at Sheffield City Council. This was also a great learning experience as I was heavily involved in advising a large organisation on their policies and procedures, as well as providing them with day-to-day HR advice. I progressed at the Council to head of the civil litigation team, overseeing 12 lawyers dealing with a variety of legal areas, including housing, debt, business rates, judicial reviews, inquests, as well as employment law. Prior to joining Minster, I worked for the National Education Union, advising reps and members on employment law issues. I am also the Law Society Council’s Employment Law member and Visiting Lecturer at the University of Law on the subjects of Employment Law and Ethics.

What are you most passionate about in your job?

My favourite area of employment law is discrimination law. I am passionate about tackling discrimination in all its forms, as well as assisting those groups who are often downtrodden by society as a whole. I carry on this passion outside of my work as I volunteer as diversity and inclusion representative for both the Doncaster Law Society and the Yorkshire Union.

What are your personal interests outside of work?

Outside of my work, I am a big fan of Bollywood films and hip-hop music. I am a reluctant runner (in that I try and do a 5 or 10k every week but I hate it every step of the way) and go to the gym at least three times a week (for both my physical and mental health). I also have 5 children who make sure I don’t have much free time!
