As an employment solicitor, I deal with all kinds of employment law issues including discrimination, post-termination restrictions and termination. I advise on the employment aspects of mergers, acquisitions, outsourcing and insourcing and am a very experienced tribunal advocate, with experience handling employment tribunal claims across the country.
I am recognised as Leading Individual in the Legal 500 2021 guide for my work in mergers, acquisitions, outsourcing and insourcing.
I am ranked as a Band 1 Employment lawyer by Chambers Guide 2020, which describes me as “as “a fantastic lawyer and a great communicator,” a client also notes: “He provides a good sounding board when trying to work through a challenge.”
"Thank you for all your hard work and clarity on this challenging case." - HR Manager at national retailer
Areas of Expertise
I was instructed to provide employment advice on a multi-million pound, multi-service outsourcing agreement. The services were all being provided to our client by multiple different existing suppliers. Those services were being transferred simultaneously to a single, new supplier. We provided tailored advice on TUPE and the related information and consultation processes. I provided related advice on mobility clauses and collective redundancy issues. We drafted and negotiated the employment warranties and indemnities for the entrance and exit in the Outsourcing Agreement. As a result of my assistance, all of the multiple transfer processes were smooth and successful.
