Top North West employment lawyer leaves Knights plc to join expanding specialist labour law practice: Constantine Law

Constantine Law, the employment law specialist firm has recruited Will Clayton as a new partner.

Will joins Constantine Law from Knights plc where he was an employment partner for over four years helping regional, national and international employers with their workforce issues. Prior to that he was a partner in the Manchester office of Hill Dickinson LLP and Taylors Solicitors. Will began his career by qualifying as a barrister and then as a solicitor and has specialised in labour law for over 23 years.

Will covers the full employment law remit and works closely with business owners and senior leadership teams to implement workforce changes, resolve employment disputes, ensure legal compliance and to protect their businesses and confidential information.

In particular, he specialises in injunctive relief work in the High Court, strategic workforce advice and restructuring and TUPE; dispute resolution; terminations and employee relations; director, shareholder, LLP and partnership dispute and exits and senior executive battles and settlements.

Will joins a growing team of senior lawyers at Constantine Law, a firm set up by John Hayes in 2015 which last year recruited employment partner Alan Lewis and Regulatory specialist and partner Sarah Wallace.

Commenting on the new appointment, Managing Partner John Hayes said, “At Constantine Law we have created a new type of law firm- one that is entrepreneurial and agile and works to a lean business model delivering a smarter, more responsive service to our clients. We are without the fixed costs of many firms which enables us to offer senior expert advice at extremely good value. In times like these, we believe this is even more attractive to clients.

“The Coronavirus pandemic has showed that agile working is the way forward and Will’s decision to join us at this time is a testament to our business model. We are delighted to welcome him to the firm. We are looking to hire further senior lawyers of his calibre and grow the business further.”
