Shoosmiths' Nottingham-based employment team has boosted its team with the appointment of associate Michael Briggs.

Employment specialist Briggs joins the national law firm from Shakespeares LLP.

Briggs advises a wide range of clients on all areas of contentious and non-contentious employment matters and day-to-day HR practices including disciplinary and grievance processes; contracts of employment; senior level service agreements; contracts for services; redundancy processes; compromise agreements; and sensitive exit arrangements for senior management.

Partner and head of Nottingham employment Helen Burgess said: "Michael is highly experienced in his field and has a great reputation in the market.

"He's built and developed some very strong relationships with his clients, making him the perfect addition to a firm which is fully focused on providing top quality legal advice and a positive client experience."

Briggs added: "I'm thoroughly looking forward to working with Helen and the team at Shoosmiths. They've got an excellent reputation and are a firm that believes whole heartedly in putting their clients first to gain the best results."
