Michelmores bolsters its London Employment team with two new appointments

Preema Patel has joined Michelmores' London Employment team as an Associate from Gordon Dadds Solicitors, whilst Laura Cann, a former Trainee Solicitor at Michelmores has also formally joined the team in London on her qualification.

Laura and Preema's appointments follow strong growth in the Firm's client base in London and the South East during the last two years.

The team advise on all aspects of employment law with a focus on retail, manufacturing, construction, service and financial sectors. Amongst other matters they deal with statutory and contractual disputes in the Employment Tribunals and High Court, collective consultation issues, executive terminations, restrictive covenant issues and the domestic employment aspects of national and international business mergers and acquisitions.

Over the last few years, Preema Patel has advised a number of German, French, American and Italian businesses in the UK across a range of industries to include banking, retail, leisure and tourism, embassies and other foreign governmental bodies, gambling, online gaming, IT and software.

James Townsend, Partner and Head of London Employment commented:
