Addleshaw Goddard fields 'an extremely strong employment group comprising pragmatic, responsive and commercial lawyers' who are 'exceptionally knowledgeable, experienced and focused'. The group 'excels in the financial services space' and is highly regarded for its experience in the Employment Tribunal and High Court. In a recent highlight, 'outstanding' team head Michael Leftley assisted the Newcastle NHS Foundation Trust with the suspension and subsequent dismissal of the Trust's Chief Executive; other mandates include Richard Yeomans advising GVC on senior executive issues and corporate support work, acting for a major retail bank in unfair dismissal and race discrimination claims, and advising William Hill on senior executive issues. Other clients include Morgan Stanley, Royal Mail Group, Tate & Lyle, Global Radio and Blackberry. Managing associate Annabel MacKay, who focuses on discrimination and whistleblowing claims, the 'impressive' Alasdair Simpson and newly promoted immigration partner Sarah Harrop, who is 'commercially excellent', are key names to note.
