Partner in the employment team

My role

I specialise in contentious employment law work across a range of sectors, acting for clients in employment tribunal proceedings, including claims for unfair and wrongful dismissal and unlawful discrimination. I also advise clients on the strategic implications of the transfer of undertakings legislation (TUPE).

My experience

I regularly advise clients on employee investigation issues and other ‘live’ internal disputes, I have considerable experience of drafting contracts of employment, zero hours agreements and staff handbooks for care providers and advising on working time, minimum wage and annual leave entitlement issues.

‘I find Matthew Gregson to be extremely approachable and a first class employment lawyer with a very good understanding of what the client wants, needs and expects. Matthew always makes himself available at short notice and immediately puts the client at ease, making them feel confident in how the matter is being handled.’ Legal 500, 2023

‘Matthew Gregson – excellent advice, guidance and support, a great sounding board for challenging employment law situations. Very quick to respond and turn stuff around. Trust him 100% and can be entirely open and honest with him.’ Legal 500, 2023
