Within: Employment

Greenwoods GRM is ‘very strong in the employment law area‘ and ‘advice is always pragmatic and timely‘. The firm has one of the largest employment and employee benefits practices in the region, and it is led by the highly regarded John MacAulay, who regularly advises clients on large-scale business reorganisations and difficult TUPE transfers. Managing partner Robert Dillarstone is still actively engaged in fee-earning and clients describe him and associate Keith Williams as ‘very good at coming up with the pros and cons of a situation such as the benefits of a textbook approach versus a pragmatic approach'. ‘Very approachable‘ newly promoted partner Joanna Scally in Cambridge is highly recommended for her ‘clarity of advice and reliable service'. Scally and senior solicitor Siobhan Thomson recently advised Bedford Borough Council on the employment aspects of its move to a digital operating model by 2020, which includes a major staff restructure and more than 250 proposed redundancies. The practice has many strong associates including Suzanne Wrench who has experience in TUPE transfers and tribunal proceedings; Vincent Galea who handles senior hires and departures, and post-termination restrictions; and Natalie Wiliams who is known for complex tribunal litigation.
