What they say

"Greg really helps with strategy, and is responsive and proactive."

Client quote, Chambers & Partners

Greg is a Gatwick-based Employment Partner. He has a strong track record of helping companies and their HR teams avoid and resolve challenging issues with their staff. He guides businesses through complex change management programmes, and business critical projects – this includes restructures, senior employee exits and settlement agreements, TUPE, changing contracts of employment,  and defending complex Tribunal claims. He also has particular expertise in advising companies in connection with thefts by employees of confidential information, and breaches of post-employment restrictive covenants.

Greg acts for senior executives in negotiating compensation packages through settlement agreements. He takes great pride in providing a highly responsive service to his clients, and to delivering advice in a succinct, business-focussed, and personable way.
