Chris is a specialist employment lawyer. He advises employers and employees on employment law issues, helping to avoid or solve problems at work. Chris’ focus is on understanding what your aims are and what is most important to you, and then working with you to develop a strategy that is suited to your aims and the situation.
Chris’ work includes dealing with redundancies / restructuring, unfair dismissal, breach of contract, discrimination, whistleblowing, restrictive covenants and transfer of undertakings (TUPE). He often negotiates compensation packages and settlement agreements on termination of employment.
His work covers the spectrum of the employment relationship from start to finish. For example, he advises on employment contracts, policies and staff handbooks, grievances and other workplace problems and termination and post-termination issues.
Chris also acts for clients bringing and defending employment related claims in the Employment Tribunal, Employment Appeal Tribunal and High Court.
Unlike many employment lawyers, Chris works for both businesses and individuals. He finds that this is extremely helpful in maintaining perspectives and being better able to anticipate how the other party may react to a situation. It therefore brings big strategic and tactical advantages to all of his clients.

I worked extensively with Chris when he successfully helped negotiate a settlement agreement with my former employer. Chris was great to work with. He is not only a clever, experienced and, most importantly, effective lawyer but also a trustworthy advisor that I am happy to have relied upon during a rather stressful time. I wholeheartedly recommend him.
Chris was a partner throughout the entire process providing both strategic and legal advice. He went out of his way to be accommodating at every stage, proving excellent service, leading a positive outcome around my challenging situation.
You provided excellent advice and you understood the ramifications of a complex case. I should also thank you for your calm and always polite approach. You showed understanding without losing sight of the best strategy to achieve the ultimate goals.
Thanks so much for your help - you helped diffuse an experience that could have soured my career.
