About Matt Gingell:

I am a specialist employment lawyer, with over 16 years’ experience, and leading legal commentator. I advise on all aspects of employment law, regularly write (with articles published in The Independent, The Guardian and City AM) and have been interviewed on Sky News.

I continue to practise employment law with clients mostly based in London. I have considerable experience as an employment lawyer, gaining knowledge at different firms. This has spanned over 16 years, working with employers and employees – and resolving disputes of all kinds. Previously to Gannons Solicitors, my current firm, I spent over 6 years at a niche employment law firm in the City.


I handle all employment law including litigation in the employment tribunal and other courts. I have a particular interest in advising senior executives on exit strategies.

For many years I have been writing articles and commentating in national papers who turn to me when they need expert comment on high profile legal matters. It is with great pride that I work with these papers to inform at national level.

Work and clients:

I act for businesses on a whole range of HR matters including redundancy and restructuring, restrictive covenants, discrimination issues, grievance and disciplinary procedures and TUPE.

I also act for individuals, regularly advising senior employees and directors on exit strategies, compensation packages and settlement agreements.

So why instruct me?

I have a genuine depth of employment law, am commercially aware and have an unstuffy style. I love practicing law, working with clients to arrive at the solution they need and offering practical advice along the way.

If you feel that you would benefit from taking some legal advice when it comes to your situation, I would be delighted to discuss it with you. Please contact me by email or give me a call.
