Angus has over 15 years’ experience of advising employers on their people strategies. He acts for organisations of various shape and size from smaller owner-managed businesses to large plcs and multinational groups and he also advises individuals on their employment rights and issues.
As well as assisting clients with discrimination claims and allegations, and with day to day employment issues such as discipline and grievances, absence management, holiday and working time matters, Angus has particular experience in advising on changing terms and conditions of employment and the people-related aspects of group reorganisations, business transfers and outsourcing projects, many of which have had an international context. He is therefore comfortable providing UK redundancy and TUPE advice whilst coordinating the relevant employment input from other jurisdictions where necessary. Angus also enjoys working with foreign (particularly US and French) businesses engaging staff in the UK or encountering difficulties with their UK personnel for the first time.
Having previously set up an Employment law team within a multidisciplinary practice, he understands how the requirements of tax, pensions, reward and social security sometimes compete with employment law demands, necessitating cooperation between specialists to create practical solutions for clients.
