Jo Davis - B P Collins LLP

Within: Employment: Beds, Bucks, Herts, Middx

B P Collins LLP's employment practice is 'a pleasure to work with; the team is well organised and its lawyers give clear, full instructions and work hard to develop relationships with clients'. It acts for a number of corporate clients and high-net-worth individuals on a range of employment matters, with notable strength in restrictive covenant matters. It also handles business immigration matters and focuses on issues arising from the automotive, IT, retail, manufacturing, construction and pharmaceutical industries. 'Outstanding' practice head Jo Davis advised Number 8 Group, which provides construction workers to construction companies, on a possible £100,000 tax levy by the Construction Industry Training Board arising from a change in the law, which involved an analysis of the law around employment status for the purposes of the levy. In another key mandate, senior associate Chris Brazier (who is 'organised, sharp and inspires confidence in his clients') represented TMD Technologies in an Employment Tribunal claim by one of its former senior managers alleging age discrimination and unfair dismissal. Other key figures include Kathryn Fielder, whose 'guidance and direction are impeccable, and who demonstrates sensitivity and compassion to clients'.
