Client sentiment has been mixed post-Brexit, with some ‘unnerved’ by the UK’s exit from the European Union, and others planning an escape to greener pastures. This uncertainty has thrown up a range of ‘challenging issues’ for Meriel Schindler, Withers’ employment head. ‘It’s been everything from “Which country shall I move my company to?” to “Help, I have just been invited to a disciplinary meeting!”’ With more than 28

Fluent in French and German, the partner is an active public speaker on all employment law matters.
