DWF is highly experienced in acting for household name clients in both contentious and non-contentious employment matters. The practice’s employment tribunal work includes representing clinets union-backed claims and discrimination, and it also handles internal investigations into alleged employee wrongdoing. In 2020, the team was active in helping large multinationals respond to COVID-19, advising on the furlough scheme and the closure of stores. Joanne Frew leads the team from the Manchester office, where Kirsty Rogers is another key partner. Tim Scott in Liverpool is also recommended.
