Nicholas West | Solicitor

nwest@hja.net 020 7874 8422

I qualified as a solicitor in the Employment team following successful completion of my training contract with HJA. I advise both employers and employees across the full spectrum of employment issues including unfair dismissal, all forms of discrimination and advising on and negotiating settlement agreements. I also advise employers in respect of their employment contracts, policies and procedures. I enjoy advising clients of the various options that are available to them in law by devising strategies and presenting information in a clear and coherent manner.
