Neil DwyerPartner

Neil leads our Employment team, with over 30 years’ experience in this area.

He acts for a wide range of employer clients from small businesses to large international concerns and is known for his ability to get to know their businesses, to anticipate their problems and provide effective, down to earth practical solutions.

His clients have said:

Neil provides great and expert advice. He gives his own opinion, which is what you need rather than some solicitors who give you text book advice. He is a fantastic, listens well and is strong on strategy.”


 “As ever, you distilled a daunting prospect into a rational and straightforward process.


Neil gives good sound advice in terms understandable to people outside of the legal profession i.e. No ‘Legal Jargon’.”

Neil is named as a “Leading individual” in the Employment field in Chambers & Partners, and “recommended” in The Legal 500, both independently researched guides to the UK legal profession.

Where problems have led to a need to defend successfully tribunal claims, clients have said:


Your level of support throughout has been excellent. You successfully steered us through the challenging balancing act between professionalism and pragmatism and our win on Friday was not just a ‘victory of the day’ but a success that was really down to months of hard work and professional guidance”..

Thank you for all your help in getting the result we did in last week’s Employment Tribunal. We definitely could not have done it without you”.

Thank you for all your support. As much as it has been deeply unpleasant at times, there was never a point where we felt like we were fighting this on our own. We do very much appreciate your help with this Neil”.

Regarding the excellent result yesterday, your style is spot-on. You always very clearly and succinctly put the issues and risks into understandable language and were always pro-active in updating us on progress.”

Neil regularly reviews ‘lessons to be learnt’ with clients, which are often addressed by providing in-house training to managers, following which clients have said:

Neil has an ability to discuss legal matters in a no-nonsense down to earth manner at all levels in the organisation.”


The performance management workshop was informative and suitable for managers at all levels.  The interactive use of role play kept everyone engaged and all of the feedback was positive”.
