Ward Hadaway predominately acts for employers and covers a wide range of contentious and non-contentious employment law matters spanning various sectors. Paul Scope, who jointly heads the team with Jamie Gamble, continues to advise Newcastle United Football Company on various employment law matters pertaining to its players: recently, he advised on the termination of employment and transfers of Tim Krul, Siem de Jong and Emmanuelle Riviere, and, in a separate matter, he assisted the Home Group with contractual arrangements with a neutral vendor supplier for all temporary labour on a national basis. Gamble advised Newcastle University on the transfer of Durham University=’s School of Medicine, Pharmacy and Health to Newcastle, which included TUPE and pre-transfer redundancy matters, while, in the contentious space, consultant Joe Thornhill defended Architectural Powder Services against unfair constructive dismissal and disability discrimination claims brought by the SME’s managing director. In other contentious work, consultant Tim Smith acted for Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust in out-of-hours service-related equal pay claims brought by two senior nurses. Bernard Hodgson is another key individual of the team with a focus on contentious work and the recommended Graham Vials specialises in education sector work.
