Mike Wakeling


T: 01789 206102


I was admitted as a solicitor in October 1988 and have over 20 years experience in employment law work. I joined Lodders in 1997 having previously worked for the Imperial Food Group; working in industry gave me a good understanding of business clients and their needs. I am now a partner in Lodders’ Dispute Resolution team and specialise in advising clients on a broad range of commercial and contractual disputes, employment related issues and contentious probate matters.  I regularly act for clients both in High Court litigation and Employment Tribunal claims.

My clients tend to be business owners, family businesses and private individuals. I am a member of both the Employment Lawyers Association and the Equine Lawyers Association. I also sit on the firm’s business development committee.

What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy working with clients to find a solution to their dispute, in the most expedient and cost effective way possible.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?
Needing to take the dog for a walk!

Do you have any interesting personal achievements?
I ran the London Marathon in 2005 raising over £5,000 for charity, and in 2008 cycled from Warwick to Paris raising over £3,000 for charity.

Dispute issues arise, and over the last 15 years we have instructed Mike Wakeling at Lodders to advise. He has the experience and knowledge, which along with expert opinion if necessary, allows an informed decision on proceeding. On the issues which needed pursuing, we’ve also found determination and attention to detail, and are very happy to recommend his services.
