Senior executive

“I was introduced to Harbottle & Lewis via a number of very strong personal recommendations and they exceeded my expectations in every way. Their service was exemplary from their knowledge of the employment market to the care and attention I received from their people throughout. I cannot recommend them more highly and will most certainly be using them as my primary law firm in the future.”

If you are director or a senior executive we can advise you on all aspects of your employment relationship from negotiating terms to providing pragmatic legal advice when the employment relationship encounters problems.

Our focus is your objectives and priorities and our advice will be tailored to meet your desired outcomes. We understand that offering cost effective and commercial solutions is especially important when acting for individuals.

The breakdown of an employment relationship and problems at work can be very stressful, especially for directors and senior executives who invest significant time and emotion into working life. Difficulties may arise as a result of a restructure, a change in duties and responsibilities, discrimination, bullying and harassment, disciplinaries or grievances. We can help you find amicable resolutions to workplace problems, taking into account your reputation and financial considerations including advising on ‘without prejudice’ or ‘protected conversation’ negotiations and settlement negotiations. If it is not possible to resolve matters, our employment lawyers have an excellent reputation in acting for executives in Employment Tribunal and High Court litigation.

We work with senior executives operating in a number of industry sectors, including media & entertainment, technology, fashion, retail, publishing, advertising, telecoms, investment banking, legal and accountancy.
