Will Hampshire, Associate, Employment
I am an associate in the employment and pensions department, working for a broad range of clients. I advise clients across a range of sectors with a focus on technology but also including sport and the public sector.
I have particular experience in non-contentious matters. As well as drafting key employment documentation such as employment contracts, consultancy agreements and settlement agreements, I provide employment due diligence on corporate takeovers, and advise employers on a range of employment areas including managing sickness absence, discrimination, redundancies, managing disciplinary and grievance matters, confidentiality and post termination restrictions, the secondment of staff and TUPE. I also have experience with Employment Tribunal claims, representing mainly employers on a variety of matters including unfair dismissal and a range of discrimination claims.
I focus on advising start up companies and i'm part of the Inward Investment team, assisting mainly US clients with their expansion into the European market. This includes offering specific UK advice but also project managing advice from the firms' other European offices and contact firms from elsewhere across the European jurisdictions.
