Tony is the head of our employment division. He enjoys resolving employment related disputes and has over 15 years’ experience of representing clients in employment disputes both before employment tribunals throughout the UK and in pre-litigation settlement discussions. This means that he is able to identify strategic issues early on and use his experience to ensure that, wherever possible, matters are resolved without recourse to court or tribunal proceedings. If necessary, however, he is a robust and determined advocate and has been involved in many hard fought court and tribunal cases.
He regularly acts for senior executives in relation to their severance arrangements and also in negotiating their service agreements and reward arrangements including long term incentives.
Tony also provides practical solutions to the employee issues arising out of corporate change as well as regularly providing employment law training to a wide range of clients.
Tony is identified as a ranked individual for employment by Chambers & Partners and won the Client Choice UK Employment Lawyer of the Year award in 2013 and again in 2015
"He's an excellent operator who knows what he's doing."
