Tom McLaughlinManaging Associate, BDBF

Tom is an experienced employment lawyer who helps clients achieve their commercial objectives by providing practical advice on all aspects of employment law. Clients value his pragmatic approach to providing advice that is sector specific and reflective of their appetite for risk.

Tom’s particular specialism is employee competition and disputes involving the protection of confidential information, post-termination restrictions and team moves.  Where litigation in these disputes cannot be avoided, Tom acts for clients in High Court proceedings, including in applications for urgent injunctions to restrain unlawful competitive activity.

In the Employment Tribunal, Tom has successfully defended employers in relation to the entire range of claims, including discrimination and whistleblowing claims.

Tom also advises on the employment aspects of corporate transactions and outsourcing situations. He has particular experience in advising on private equity investments, and the ongoing management of investee companies.

Much of Tom’s work has a cross-border element and he has particular experience of advising overseas clients wishing to establish a market presence in the UK.
