Lucy LewisLewis Silkin

Drawing upon a deep understanding of domestic and international employment law issues associated with ongoing business operations, as well as in the context of ad-hoc transactional work (including major restructurings, M&A mandates and outsourcing), the ‘very strong’ team at Lewis Silkin provides ‘commercially savvy’ advice to private sector employers, both on its own as well as alongside other practitioners spread across the firm’s UK-wide network of offices. Team head Lucy Lewis  has ‘excellent retail knowledge’ and provides ‘very responsive and commercially pragmatic’ strategic advice to many high-profile employers on redundancies/restructuring; sensitive terminations and practical advice on the operation of TUPE. Richard Moore  ‘provides business friendly advice’ on the employment law issues arising from corporate transactions and commercial outsourcing arrangements. At an associate level, Charlotte Morgan continues to impress (although her recent work has been largely made in the context of a secondment role for a large US bank), and Neil Dite has ‘an ability to explain complicated areas easily and thoroughly’, particularly in relation to international employment matters impacting clients in the manufacturing sector.
