A Midlands law firm has bolstered its employment offering in Birmingham with one of its respected specialists relocating to the city.

In Detail

Partner and employment law expert Chris Piggott has moved to work in the firm’s St Paul’s Square office.

Chris will continue to work closely with departmental head Sally Morris as he further develops the firm’s employment and HR offering in the Birmingham area alongside the expanding commercial services team.

With a nationally-recognised reputation acting for a variety of corporate PLCs and small enterprises, Chris advises on employee-relations issues such as TUPE transfers, restrictive covenants and injunctive relief, organisational change and HR practices.

Chris Piggott said: “All sections of Birmingham’s business community are once again thriving after the difficult few years’ caused by the pandemic.

“That’s meant an upturn in organisations looking for more employment law advice so I am delighted to be positioned right in the heart of the city where our commercial services team are accessible, available and ready to give the best service.

“I have spent the majority of my professional life in Birmingham so it was a natural choice for me to move and integrate closely with our corporate and commercial specialists to further grow our business services, and ultimately, to support the growth plans of our clients.”

Sally Morris added: “Since joining us over six years ago Chris has built on his tremendous reputation across the whole of the UK for his first-rate employment and HR advice.

“With Chris moving across to our Birmingham office it adds a whole new dimension to our growing team in the city, and vitally, our employment law offering at a time when there are so many big changes to employment-related legislation.”
