Leading international law firm Holman Fenwick Willan (HFW) is delighted to announce the recruitment of Neil Adams, an employment law Partner, who joined the firm’s London office on 5 January 2015.

Neil advises on all aspects of employment counselling and complex litigation for clients across a range of sectors, including financial services, commodities and technology. He has significant experience of advising on both individual and team moves, breach of contract and duty, the enforcement of restrictive covenants and board disputes. His work involves advice in relation to M&A and restructuring, and litigation in the High Court and employment tribunals where he has successfully represented clients on significant breach of contract, unfair dismissal and discrimination claims.

Richard Spiller, head of the firm’s insurance and reinsurance practice commented: “I am delighted to welcome Neil to the firm. Having previously worked with Neil, I know that his experience of handling complex employment law issues in the insurance sector will add a valuable extra dimension to our existing capability.”

Neil said: “I am pleased to join HFW and to be working closely with their financial services, commodities, energy and resources, construction and transportation teams, as well as to be working again with Partners Richard Spiller and Ashwani Kochhar. HFW’s global platform provides an exciting opportunity for me to strengthen the firm’s employment offering and enhance the range of services the firm can offer to its international client base.”
