Alan is a Consultant who works within DMH Stallard’s Employment group and is based in London. He has more than 30 years’ experience in dealing with the full range of contentious and non contentious employment matters, providing practical and commercial solutions to the problems faced by both employers and individuals in the modern workplace.

In particular, Alan advises on the drafting of all employment documentation ranging from standard contracts and bespoke service agreements to detailed advice on terms and conditions, non-compete and confidentiality restrictions, structured remuneration packages, policies and procedures. He also advises on non employment issues regarding consultancies, sub-contractors and IR35 companies.

He is an expert in respect of the redundancy process, equal opportunities, transfers of undertakings, termination and dismissal. His particular areas of expertise include acting for American Corporations with a UK subsidiary, bankers in redundancy negotiations, care and nursing homes and for charities where the legal issues are different from the commercial sector.

Alan has a reputation as a strategic thinker and problem solver. His clients range from food manufacturers, educational establishments and charities to SMEs and high net worth individuals.

He qualified as a solicitor in 1974.
