Andrew Burns QC specialises in complex commercial, employment and industrial disputes, particularly injunctions and discrimination claims. The directories list him as a leading QC and he has featured in some of the leading appellate cases in employment law and trade disputes in recent years including Walker v Co-op (equal pay), Malone v British Airways (the BA cabin crew litigation), ASLEF v London Midland, RMT v Serco (strike injunctions) and Prophet plc v Huggett (restrictive covenant injunctions).

He resisted the Ryanair strike injunction (BALPA v Ryanair), acted for Royal Mail in preventing a national postal strike (Royal Mail Group v CWU), appeared for Birmingham City Council in the bin workers' strike (Birmingham City Council v Unite the Union) and acted for Network Rail in its key working time appeal (Crawford v Network Rail). He has appeared in a number of high-profile executive whistleblowing claims and EAT appeals involving European Works Councils (Oracle and Manpower).

Two of Andrew's cases were recently included the top employment law decisions: Kostal v Dunkley (on changing employment contracts outside of collective bargaining) and Ali v Capita (on discrimination between payments for shared parental leave and maternity leave). Andrew is also a co-author of Bean on Injunctions (13th Ed. 2018).
