His recent experience includes: acting for a Global 500 client defending multiple claims for unfair dismissal, protective award and discrimination claims; advising on the employment issues arising from the closure of defined benefit pension schemes to future accrual for existing employees in relation to various companies in the financial services, pharmaceutical and engineering sectors; and negotiating employment terms on 30 year commercial NHS contracts for a FTSE 100 client using the “Retention of Employment Model” and other secondment based commercial agreements.
