Tim Clark is a partner in our Employment law team and one of the firm’s two joint managing partners.

Tim trained as a litigator and then specialised in Employment law, developing a particular expertise in dealing with reorganisation, restructuring, redundancy and TUPE issues. He is very experienced in the strategic aspects of large scale workforce projects.

Tim also acts for senior executives, advising on complex service agreements, commission and bonus arrangements, exit provisions and termination packages. He is an expert in the tax aspects of these arrangements.

Tim is recommended in the UK's leading guides to law firms, Chambers UK and The Legal 500, and has appeared on BBC television and radio as an expert commentator on Employment law.

Like fellow joint managing partner Jonathan Gater and Chairman Brenda Long, Tim trained at Blandy & Blandy and he has been with the firm for approaching 25 years.

He actively participates in the firm's annual programme of events, including an Employment law seminar and mock employment tribunal.
