David is a Partner in the Employment Team. His career, which has spanned over 20 years, has given him experience in all areas of contentious and non-contentious employment law ranging from matters in the Employment Tribunals, High Court and the Central Arbitration Committee, to transactional advice involving multimillion-pound company purchases. David’s specific focus is on employment-based issues with unusual legal and factual aspects to them.
David’s clients are drawn from a broad spectrum ranging from private individuals to national and international organisations and companies in all areas of business, including technology, telecoms, banking and finance, manufacturing, construction, recruitment, media and publishing.
On the private client side, he regularly advises on claims involving matters such as discrimination and whistleblowing against large employers.
On the employer side, he works with HR departments and senior directors who need preventative employment advice, representing them when needed in contentious matters ranging from the enforcement of restrictive covenants and non-competition clauses, claims involving all types of discrimination, unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal and whistleblowing, to data protection and regulatory issues. David’s expertise also covers the employment aspects of business sales and purchases, the drafting of contracts, handbooks, policies and agreements for consultants and subcontractors, commercial agents and agency workers. He also negotiates settlement/compromise agreements for individuals.
David has specific experience of the financial sector, including bringing and defending injunction applications relating to the enforcement of restrictive covenants in that area, and of the recruitment sector, advising on matters involving the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations and the Agency workers Regulations. David is also one of only a few individuals who has experience of advising on international issues relating to European Works Councils.
