Andrew Humphrey

Partner in Employment and Business Regulations

Employment & business regulations lawyer

Andrew advises on all aspects of employment law to a client base ranging from small healthcare practices, large employment businesses to social-media companies, as well as other law firms. He undertakes routine litigation work on behalf of a well-known supermarket as well as advising on strategic employment issues. He also advises senior executives on managed exits.

Andrew has also been increasingly relied upon to advise on commercial and regulatory issues and has been heavily involved in GDPR preparation for both small and larger companies. This has included advising on marketing issues arising under PECR. Andrew’s reputation in this area has led him to be separately instructed in relation to the management of large-scale data-breaches and other GDPR-related complaints.
