Nicholas Thorpe, Partner, Employment and Pensions, Fieldfisher

I am an employment lawyer and partner in the employment and pensions group.  I have specialised in employment law for over 10 years and am recognised as a leading individual (up and coming) by Chambers UK.

I advise on all aspects of employment law, both contentious and non-contentious, including senior executive terminations (including for listed companies), restrictive covenant disputes, complex discrimination issues, business transfers and outsourcings, collective dismissals and restructurings.  I act for a wide array of public and private sector clients operating in the UK and overseas.

I am noted in the independent legal directories for my commercial approach: I have been described as an 'outstanding lawyer' and 'incredibly commercial'.   I have also been praised for my 'excellent communication skills'.

I have spoken widely and written many articles.  I am a regular speaker at seminars and workshops for HR professional groups, such as HR Retail Circle, and other external bodies.  I am also an updating author for the financial services employment manual for XpertHR.

I have a young family and seem to have little spare time these days, but was an avid rambler and was also known to do the odd half marathon.
