I have a niche in the claimant employment market, running some very high value cases and a test case attracting media interest from television and a broad spread of media. I have specialised in employment law for nearly 20 years.

I am able to advise senior executives on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment law including; exit packages, internal grievances and disciplinaries, litigating matters in the employment tribunal and civil courts, partnership agreements, management of employees on team moves, permanent health insurance, unfair dismissal, discrimination, harassment, whistleblowing, victimisation, post termination restrictive covenants, injunctive relief, contracts of employment and service agreements.

My roles have seen me lead teams, create new products and provide excellent client service. My practice also encompasses advising small to medium enterprises on contracts, staff manuals, retention and recruitment policies and termination agreements.

My key cases have included Perkin v St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust (Court of Appeal), which considered whether the manner of an employee’s defence in internal proceedings can affect his final damages and Younis v Trans Global Projects Ltd (Employment Appeal Tribunal) which determined the status for a consultant in claiming rights in the Employment Tribunal.

Testimonial: “Thalis is the knowledgeable and supportive expert I trust and turn to when I need employment law advice. He is honest, open and supportive and provides sound advice at all times. I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone.
