Blackadders LLP is well equipped to guide employers and employees through employment tribunal proceedings – frequently these concern pay-related, unfair dismissal and discrimination claims, among others -, but the team also provides transactional employment assistance and advice on various HR matters. Simon Allison heads up the team from Dundee; he has a focus on manufacturing and construction sector work and has developed a niche in advising GP practices. Jack Boyle, who was promoted to director in April 2019, is another key member of the team and noted for his expertise in contentious employment work.
