Employment Solicitor/Barrister NQ – 2 & 3+ years’ PQE/Call LONDON
Commercial law firm in London requires two Employment Solicitors and/or Barristers – one of NQ to 2 and the other of 3 or more years’ PQE/Call. The team undertakes the full spectrum of contentious and non-contentious Employment law. They work across complex, high profile and high-stake situations, acting at the highest level for both employers and senior executives. Their litigious work often includes high profile discrimination and whistleblowing claims in the Employment Tribunal, contractual disputes or applications for injunctive relief in the High Court and appellate cases in the Employment Appeal Tribunal, High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. In addition to this, we work on a significant number of transactions, where we provide employment advice on M&A deals, management buy-outs, joint ventures, restructurings and new business start-ups. The advisory practice encompasses the full spectrum of Employment related issues and frequently includes internal investigations and regulatory matters. While the team’s clients span a wide range of sectors, they have a particular emphasis on financial services; fashion; luxury goods; retail; recruitment; media; sport and life sciences sectors and have significant experience dealing with the complexities of LLPs, private equity and venture capital firms. The role will involve advising a variety of clients (employers and employees) on both contentious and non-contentious employment law, including: discrimination; restrictive covenants; HR advisory; TUPE; unfair dismissal; redundancies; settlement agreements; data theft, the misappropriation of confidential information; the employment aspects of corporate transactions and other contractual issues. Alongside day-to-day advisory work, there will be the opportunity to advise on litigious matters in the Employment Tribunal, High Court and appellate courts. They encourage business development and the ideal candidates will need to undertake business development activities, on behalf of the team, both internally and externally. If you are a qualified Solicitor you will currently specialise in Employment law matters, whilst qualified Barristers applying must have at least some experience of handling Employment cases. Newly-qualified Solicitors will have undertaken a seat in Employment law and newly-qualified Barristers must have had some sort of exposure to Employment cases during their pupillage.
