About Anthony

Anthony is a Partner in the Employment Law team. He qualified as a solicitor in 1999 and ran his own specialist employment law practice for nearly 16 years before joining TWM in September 2018. He is also an accredited mediator. 

Anthony has experience of acting for individual employees and employers of various sizes, including businesses without their own HR function as well as larger companies with specialist HR departments. His corporate clients have operated in many business sectors, including pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, specialist vehicle manufacturing, travel, publishing, education and the drinks industry.

Anthony’s work has encompassed the main areas of employment law practice, including:

  • Managing grievances, disciplinary and capability matters (both sickness and performance);
  • Providing guidance to management on handling employee relations issues and disputes;
  • Negotiating executive termination packages and settlement agreements;
  • Advising on TUPE in both outsourcing and acquisition cases;
  • Planning and advising businesses conducting re-organisations and redundancies, including large scale redundancy situations involving collective consultation;
  • Advising employers on workplace relocations and providing practical guidance and support, including advising on projects involving a pharmaceutical manufacturing site, a specialist vehicle factory, one of Europe’s Largest bottling, warehousing and distribution sites and a company head office;
  • Advising on, and conducting, cases involving claims including wrongful dismissal, unfair dismissal, discrimination, harassment, victimisation, whistleblowing, detriment (including trade union detriment) breach of contract, unlawful deduction from wages and bonus entitlement;
  • Drafting employment contracts, handbooks and similar documentation, including advising on restrictive covenants and confidentiality;
  • Conducting employment mediation; and
  • Advising on industrial relations matters, including recognition requests, collective bargaining and industrial action.

As well as managing and preparing employment cases, Anthony has personally conducted advocacy before the Employment Tribunal many times. This has included large and complex cases lasting one week or longer.  His advocacy experience extends beyond the Employment Tribunal system. Anthony has also appeared before the Central Arbitration Committee and successfully defended an employer faced with a Trade Union seeking confidential management bonus information during collective bargaining (Unite the Union v Constellation Europe Limited – Case Number DI/3(2007)).

In addition, Anthony provides employment law training to businesses looking to develop the skills of their managers, supervisors and HR professionals. These workshops are designed to be participative and train employees in how to manage common workplace issues within the law rather than focusing on the law in isolation. This approach not only helps engage the delegates, it places the emphasis on teaching the delegates practical skills that they can take away with them into their workplace.
