Paula KathrensBlake Morgan LLP

Blake Morgan LLP‘s ‘friendly and knowledgeable’ three-partner team provides wide-ranging contentious and non-contentious advice to a balanced mix of private and public sector clients in a standalone context, as well as a corporate support function. In addition to her TUPE-related expertise, team head Joanne Davies has a particularly strong track record advising clients in highly regulated industries, including financial services and health and social care, work which often involves significant interaction with the relevant regulators. Although the ‘pragmatic and responsive‘ Paula Kathrens also has a substantial following among clients within the social housing and education sectors, she is perhaps best-known for her representation of health boards in doctor disciplinary cases. The ‘commercial and creative Matthew Smith is the main contact for complex employment disputes involving private and public sector clients (including on doctor disciplinary work), while on the non-contentious front he continues to regularly advise retail clients, including on Covid-related employment considerations.
