Joanne Davies - Blake Morgan LLP

Within: Employment

Blake Morgan LLP provides 'balanced and effective advice' to education, retail and health sector entities across the gamut of employment matters, including discrimination and whistleblower matters, and industrial relations issues. With clients including the Welsh government, NHS Wales and numerous Welsh universities, the firm is perhaps best-known for its prowess in the public sector, where the 'professional and personable' Paula Kathrens is noted for her expertise at handling internal disciplinary proceedings involving doctors in NHS Wales. Team head Joanne Davies has particular expertise on TUPE issues, including as it relates to outsourcing in the public sector. The 'unflappable and experienced' Matthew Smith specialises in contentious work, recently handling a high-profile Supreme Court matter which clarified the law relating to "unfavourable treatment" under the Equality Act 2010.
