Withers Worldwide – London
With over 33 years experience in employment and partnership law, Elaine focuses on acting for directors, senior executives and in particular currently those senior managers who are likely to be included within the incoming FCA and PRA’s Senior Managers Regime from March 2016. In particular she advises on termination of employment, resignation/removal from partnerships, negotiating service agreements and LLP agreements (including negotiating corporate indemnities), investigations and disciplinary proceedings (particularly in FCA/PRA regulated businesses), bonus, discrimination and whistleblowing claims, team moves and restrictive covenants (drafting and enforcement). She first became partner in 1989 at a previous law firm. Regarded as being ‘amongst the best individual employment lawyers in the London market’ (Insider’s Guides to Legal Services), she has been variously described by Legal 500 as ‘phenomenal’ and by Chambers as ‘thinks outside the box’ and ‘fights her clients’ corners with great passion’. She has also been described by the directories as a having a superb reputation for senior executive work and as ‘tenacious and intelligent’, a ‘keen strategist and tactician’, a ‘formidable opponent’, a ‘first-class operator’ and ‘supremely clever’. She is recommended for her ‘sense of strategy and imagination’. Those surveyed by Chambers noted that she ‘represents top clients and she does it very adroitly’ and is ‘relentless for her clients’. Elaine is regularly instructed to lead multi-disciplinary teams and is therefore a natural choice where employment, regulatory and reputation management issues are paramount. She is also used as team leader on matters involving corporate, litigation and wealth planning advice.
