I’m a partner in Lodders’ Dispute Resolution team, and I lead the Employment Team, advising clients on a broad range of employment and commercial issues (both contentious and non-contentious). I also head up the Cheltenham office, specialising in employment law, and the numerous issues that arise from that relationship, including restrictive covenants, shareholding and regulatory issues.
What do you most enjoy about your job?
I enjoy working with my clients to find a solution, and helping them meet their wider objectives, whatever they may be.
What sort of clients do you work with?
My clients tend to be business owners, family businesses, senior directors, as well as employees.
When did you start at Lodders? Any interesting past employers?
I’ve been with Lodders since 2015. Prior to that, I worked for law firms in Bristol, London and Cheltenham.
Are you a member of any societies, committees or organisations either at work or externally?
I am a member of the Employment Lawyers Association.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
My job is different every day. I never know how the day is going to turn out, or what it will involve. I love the variety of my work, and helping corporate clients achieve their commercial objectives, or individuals manage the next step of their career.
Any interesting qualifications?
I am an accredited mediator.
Any interesting personal achievements?
I secured an academic scholarship to my secondary school, and I played representative and club rugby to a high standard, when I was young.
Nick leads the team of employment solicitors at Lodders and also heads up our Cheltenham office. He specialises in employment law, covering both contentious and non-contentious cases. He acts for both employers (ranging from privately-owned companies to listed FTSE companies) and employees of ranging seniority and interests, priding himself on his balanced view of both sides of the relationship. Nick’s work includes the handling of employment tribunal claims of all kinds and he regularly undertakes High Court litigation for clients with contractual issues arising out of employment relationships.
In addition, Nick and his team support the everyday requirements of Lodders’ commercial clients and advise on the employment aspects of transactions, re-reorganisation and redundancies. Nick has a great breadth of experience and has handled a large number of complicated multi-party transfer of undertakings (TUPE) cases. He and his team regularly draft employment contracts and policies and engage in general advisory work for clients.
Nick also regularly advises on employment-related shareholder issues and enjoys a wealth of experience in acting in respect of regulatory issues involving organisations such as the Rugby Football Union, the General Medical Council, Health and Care Professionals Council and the Financial Conduct Authority.
