The insightful and goodhumoured managing partner Gareth Brahams is an employment practitioner known to serve ‘the brightest and the best’ in their time of need. Fittingly, Spear’s hears nothing short of effusive praise from impressed peers. Despite having seen a slight downturn in the employment landscape shortly after the referendum, enquiries have ‘roared back’, with a general uptake in work, he says. Specialised in tackling discrimination and whistleblowing cases, Brahams advises an array of HNW clients, predominantly highly paid bankers, investors, law firm partners, accountancy outfits and entrepreneurs. Besides disputes, his forte lies in employment contracts and joining LLPs.
