He advises a variety of clients, in particular:


“Thalis did an outstanding job on helping me get the best possible settlement from my employer. I know my case was a complex one, involving multiple areas of law such as disciplinary, tax, indemnity, financial settlement, cross border issues, non - disclosure clauses and employer references. Thalis dealt with my case with the utmost professionalism throughout. I appreciated you working outside of normal working hours and the speed at which you resolved all the issues that I had. The settlement he achieved for me was nothing short of amazing and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone who needs a specialist employment solicitor.”

“Thalis worked efficiently to ensure a quick turnaround, whilst not compromising on quality or detail. I know from over 30 years’ experience in the law that finding a lawyer who combines a fine understanding of their areas of expertise with a lightness of touch and is user - friendly is a rare and valuable thing indeed. He certainly filled that brief when advising us.”

“Dedicated Guidance, shrewd direction and outstanding no fuss clarity, on what needs to be done, a true art.”

“Thalis has been amazing. So supportive, kind and helpful. He went beyond the call of duty! I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.”

“I really appreciated both Thalis’ advice and manner. It helps enormously to have an understanding and competent person advising at times of stress.”

“A couple of weeks ago I asked Thalis to talk to my son in law, who worked for a company for 15/18 years and is now 57. He had been informed that job losses were being considered – but he knew the signs at his age re – employment would be a problem.  Thalis was brilliant, reviewing his paperwork, (&CV) and advising him how to proceed.

The end result is that he is keeping his job, at least for 2 years while his company make or break decision if they are staying in business.”

“Thank you for all your help in examining and advising me on my settlement agreement. I appreciate the speed and thoroughness with which you have dealt with the matter.”

"That’s fantastic. Thank you so very much for everything Thalis - it was an experience to go through but it was all made far easier because of you."
