Clarkslegal LLP - Solicitors in Reading and London

Our People

Russell Dann

I specialise in employment and discrimination law. I recently joined Clarkslegal having trained and practised in leading employment law teams. I work closely with clients to understand their commercial and practical needs and always aim to give cost effective and clear advice.

My work includes representing employers defending Employment Tribunal claims and advising employers and individuals on all aspects of the employment relationship, including unfair dismissal, holiday pay, discrimination, and redundancy. I have experience dealing with large scale litigation in the Employment Tribunal and civil courts.

I have a particular interest in industrial relations and employee relations. I have acted successfully in relation to applications for injunctions to prevent strike action.

I regularly advise on discrimination issues including discrimination on the grounds of sex, race, disability and age. This can involve identifying potential risks for a company at an early stage and advising on ways for the company to minimise these risks or providing advice and support to companies or individuals if claims arise.

I have experience in achieving successful outcomes for clients in very large scale litigation in the Employment Tribunal, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court and in negotiations to achieve favourable and cost-effective outcomes for clients.

I regularly advise on exit packages and restrictive covenants. I have successfully acted for senior executives with high value claims in the Employment Tribunal and High Court.

I have extensive experience in advising both companies and individuals on the terms and effect of settlement agreements, and in negotiating to obtain more beneficial settlement terms for my clients.
