Hina Belitz is a senior employment lawyer, author and trainer with over 20 years’ experience.  She has headed up employment teams at a number of City firms, including DLA Piper, Dentons and Pinsent Mason, and was managing partner of her own City of London law firm – Partners Employment Lawyers for 11 years – now part of Excello Law.

She also advises senior executives on termination and settlement agreements.

She has personally conducted the advocacy in over 80 claims at Employment Tribunal, Employment Appeal Tribunal and the High Court, often partnering with barristers to assist with representation.

The most substantial part of her work is working with executive teams to advise on employment law when viewed alongside commercial strategy ensuring the smooth running of their organisations, especially when faced with redundancies, TUPE and corporate re-organisations.

Hina established a City-based employment law club in 2007 which runs quarterly updates for 100s of leading businesses and additionally offers HR consultancy services and employment law training.


Hina is a published author and media commentator on employment law, co-authoring the ‘Penguin Guide to Employment Rights’ with preface by Cherie Booth, barrister and wife of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, and published her first fictional novel, ‘Set Me Free’ in 2016, named as one of Amazon’s ‘Best Debut Novels’ that year.


When not writing novels, Hina is an avid reader – evidenced by a house full of books – and she also enjoys writing poetry and hosting dinner parties.
