I advise companies, LLPs and senior executives on all aspects of employment and partnership law.

The bulk of my work is focused on the financial and professional services sectors. I support my clients on all issues arising in the workplace. This can range from negotiating complex contracts to defending high-value claims in the Employment Tribunal. 

I am particularly interested in High Court litigation and arbitrations. I frequently advise on restrictive covenants, confidential information, bonus claims and team moves, often with elements spanning several jurisdictions.  I have worked on a number of the team’s biggest cases over the years. This has included successfully defending a Hedge Fund against a claim worth in excess of $200 million and securing a multi-million pound settlement for a whistleblower at the doors of the Tribunal. I am a member of the Employment Lawyers Association, sitting on its Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolution Working Group.

Financial Services

I act for a number of financial services clients including Hedge Funds, banks, brokers, insurance intermediaries and HFT firms.  My work covers the full range of contentious and non-contentious employment and partnership advice.  My experience includes:

  • Acting for an international Hedge Fund on all its UK litigation including high-value arbitrations.  I also support this client with day-to-day employment, partnership and related regulatory advice

  • Advising a leading brokerage firm, including strategic support on all senior hires and terminations

  • Representing senior executives in complex negotiations, together with Tribunal and High Court litigation

  • Obtaining various injunctions to protect my clients’ interests
