Specialist in Employment
Hina Belitz is a senior employment lawyer, author and trainer with over 20 years’ experience. She has headed up employment teams at a number of City firms, including DLA Piper, Dentons and Pinsent Mason, and was managing partner of her own City of London law firm – Partners Employment Lawyers for 11 years – now part of Excello Law.
Hina acts for a wide range of companies including financial institutions, IT, service and property organisations, charities and educational establishments, as well as for international royalty, and UK-based embassies advising on employment law, supporting on strategy and board level decision making. She also advises senior executives on termination and settlement agreements.
She has personally conducted the advocacy in over 80 claims at Employment Tribunal, Employment Appeal Tribunal and the High Court, often partnering with barristers to assist with representation.
The most substantial part of her work is working with executive teams to advise on employment law when viewed alongside commercial strategy ensuring the smooth running of their organisations, especially when faced with redundancies, TUPE and corporate re-organisations.
Hina established a City-based employment law club in 2007 which runs quarterly updates for 100s of leading businesses and additionally offers HR consultancy services and employment law training.
She is a published author and media commentator on employment law, co-authoring the ‘Penguin Guide to Employment Rights’ with preface by Cherie Booth, barrister and wife of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, and published her first fictional novel, ‘Set Me Free’ in 2016, named as one of Amazon’s ‘Best Debut Novels’ that year.
Hina was listed in the Legal 500 2022 directory, with comments including:
‘Personable, approachable, understanding, flexible, measured, caring and great ability to listen, Hina Belitz is wonderful, she was a great support and comfort when I needed advice and my settlement ended with a good resolution. She was always composed, compassionate, calm and considered. She really did make a very difficult upsetting time a lot more bearable, her ability to listen and understand my situation and talk things through really helped my mental well-being and kept me sane in my hour of need.’
‘2020 was a very challenging period for me personally, which resulted in me personally having health issues, which was a direct result from how my previous employer behaved towards me. Excello Law is unique as they were able to empathise with my situation, provide clear guidance and recommendations, and partnered with me on a case that lasted over six months. Their people/soft/collaboration skills stand out from the competition, I truly felt valued at a time I most needed to be.’
