Richard Kenyon, Partner, Head of Employment and Pensions

Richard Kenyon, Partner, Head of Employment and Pensions, Fieldfisher
I am head of the employment and pensions group with over 20 years' experience of advising on one of the most immediate and dynamic areas of law.  Work is so important to so many of us and all businesses are reliant for success upon their employees.

I work across a wide range of sectors, each with its own nuances.  In any one day I might be drafting the employment provisions of an outsourcing contract, defending a discrimination claim against a major company and its directors, advising on national minimum wage and working time compliance for a retailer or managing the departure of a chief executive or chief constable.

I work closely with colleagues who specialise in pensions and equity incentives, high court litigators who enforce restrictive covenants, TMT lawyers working on service contracts, corporate and commercial colleagues buying and selling businesses and privacy lawyers who advise on employee data issues.

In addition to providing media quotes and blogs I am on the editorial board of the Employment Law Journal and have written numerous articles.  I co-wrote a book on Promoting Equality and Diversity for Oxford University Press.
Chambers UK 2015 says "he can translate into non-legal language and make his advice easily actionable"

In my spare time, somewhat surprisingly, I still play football every week and enjoy roof terrace gardening, London cycling and London living.
