Led by Jo Davis, our hugely collaborative employment team, which is regarded as top tier by The Legal 500, aims to help both companies and private individuals achieve their goals.

Due to its quality of work, it has been instructed on high profile age discrimination and whistleblowing cases, which have established legal precedent. It also advises on non-contentious work, for example helping clients to buy or sell a company or achieve an amicable exit for an employee.

The practice also hosts a ‘HR Cabinet’, which is a free virtual gathering for HR professionals to share, collaborate and learn, in order to achieve the highest standards of HR service. This has now become a permanent fixture in many HR professionals’ diaries.
