What the team is known for

Advises individuals and businesses across a wide spectrum of employment matters. Employer clients go to the firm for its ability to advise on matters including restructurings, TUPE transfers and the defence of tribunal proceedings. The team also offers employment law and HR training to its business clients. Employees and senior executives can go to Greene & Greene for everything from contract negotiations through to employment litigation covering areas like unfair dismissal, whistle-blowing and discrimination.

Angharad Ellis-Owen is a qualified barrister and is recommended for her experience of employment disputes. Her practice is broader than litigation, and she is highly capable when it comes to areas such as contract negotiations and TUPE.

Greg Jones frequently advises clients in the technology and manufacturing sectors on a range of contentious and non-contentious employment matters.

Selene Holden is head of employment at Greene & Greene. She advises employers on a broad range of work including investigation, grievance procedures and senior exits.

Overview

Greene & Greene has three employment experts advising employers and employees on all aspects of employment law.

The firm recognises that, whilst it is vital to be up to date with and ensure compliance with the law, it is equally important to get a business to where it needs to be; if that means the dismissal of an employee, then their job is to help the client to achieve that with the minimum of fuss and comeback, not to obstruct it with reasons why “that cannot be done”.

Many clients frequently return to Greene & Greene testifying that their “get it done” attitude is quite unlike anything they have found elsewhere.
 
The expanding team regularly advises on;

  • Terms and conditions & contracts of employment;​
  • Company policies and procedures;
  • TUPE transfers;
  • Subject Access Requests;
  • Redundancy and business reorganisations;
  • Unfair dismissal;
  • Discrimination and harassment matters;
  • Employment tribunals; and
  • Negotiation of settlement agreements and severance packages with employees and directors.

The team continues to host its annual Employment Law Update (in addition to regular HR Forums), which is attended by over 100 HR practitioners and feedback has classed it as “One of the best ones I have attended.”
