Meet our team / Matthew Wort
Partner in the employment and pensions team
I am a partner in the employment and pensions team and also lead the firms’ work in the health and social care sector. I love being given challenging situations to resolve and identifying commercial solutions. I mainly work with clients in the health and social care and social housing sector.
I help people unblock difficult employment issues be that with key employees or trade unions. I enjoy helping clients with managing redundancy or contract change programmes to manage risk whilst maintaining employee relations. My TUPE and national minimum wage (NMW) experience is highly regarded by clients, and I regularly support clients through HMRC inspections. I also advise on complex discrimination and whistleblowing cases and am regularly involved in investigations.
I provide advice and support on the local government pension scheme (LGPS), particularly in the context of employers obtaining Admitted Body Status.
I was named in the Hot 100 list by the Lawyer for 2022.
