About Malcolm

Clients value Malcolm’s ability to ‘dispel complexity and reduce challenging scenarios to simple and ordered next steps’ and he is praised for his business acumen and pragmatism.

Malcolm who heads the Firm’s Corporate Services Group is independently recognised as a ‘leader’ in the field by legal directories Chambers UK and Legal 500.

Recognised widely as an excellent public speaker, Malcolm frequently delivers seminars and training sessions to clients, HR professionals and businesses on a wide range of topics.

Malcolm handles all aspects of employment law and is a keen Tribunal Advocate. His recent work includes:

  • advising on three linked multiparty Employment Tribunal claims valued at around £1m brought by 70 Claimants involving complicated TUPE and trade union issues
  • assisting a global technology leader for biomedical and industrial applications in defending claims for race discrimination and unfair dismissal
  • guiding a large US company with a restructure of its European subsidiaries, including assessing the impact of the proposals and risk assessing the potential outcomes
  • advising on the strategic restructure of a business following an acquisition by venture capitalists with a view to exit involving TUPE transfers, large scale redundancies and careful positioning with a trade union.

I love doing deals - especially those where my clients say to me that the result for them was outstanding and better than expected.
