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.”
