Head of Lodders' Employment Law team

Damian Kelly, Lodders Solicitors, Employment Law, Stratford upon Avon

Short bio

I am a partner and head of the Employment team at Lodders.

I act for employers of various shapes and sizes, from start-ups to large private companies, on a wide range of employment issues, including contracts of employment, directors’ service contracts, HR policies and procedures, disciplinary issues, redundancies and reorganisations, senior executive terminations, settlement agreements and Tribunal claims. I help businesses to manage relationships with Trade Unions, Works Councils, and European Works Councils.

My clients also include directors and senior employees.

I regularly act as a Tribunal advocate – with recent successes in both the Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal – and provide a range of employment law and HR training programmes for managers and HR professionals.

I chair the Board of Governors at Solihull School.

I am based in Stratford upon Avon

What I excel in:

  • Dispute Resolution
  • Employment and HR Services for Business
  • Employment Law
  • Employment Law Services for Individuals

Recently, I instructed Damian to advise on a workplace restructuring. His advice was concise, pragmatic and focussed on helping us achieve our optimum solution. Damian helped us to deliver our key objectives on time (within a short timescale) and on budget.  His advice has always been key to a successful outcome. Whilst always being spot on legally, Damian is practical and tailors his advice to our needs.  I would not hesitate to use him in the future and recommend his services.
